  1. Michael Eavis and his social housing project

    Words from Glasto HQ. Earlier today, Michael Eavis welcomed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to Pilton to celebrate the beginning of the final stage of his landmark social housing project. “These are houses for village people to live in and they will never be sold,” says Michael Eavis. “My dream was to have 50 houses available for the Festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020. Today we are one step nearer to making that dream a reality.” The first building project started in 1990 as 10 houses known as ‘Oathills’, the original name of the field. Then, ten years later came the completion of ‘John Burn’s Cottages’, 12 houses funded by Hastoe Housing. The land and the stone were provided free of charge from Worthy Farm, with contributions for dressing the stone from the Workers Beer Company, who provide bars at the Festival. HRH Prince Charles opened John Burn’s Cottages and met the tenants in 2010. Now we have completed another 13 houses, working with the Guinness Partnership and builders EG Carter, known as ‘Maggie’s Farm’. These were visited by David Beckham this year, who planted a walnut tree. Plans are now well ahead to complete the whole scheme with a further 15 houses to make a total of 50, which will coincide with the Festival’s 50th anniversary year, 2020. ------------ Most of the people in the top image is involved with the WBC and/or BWTUC { who formed the WBC over 30 years ago } and the guy on the right { with white beard and white hair } worked in the very first WBC bar at Glastonbury in 1986 and he is still going strong and he is older than me !!! John Burns (20 October 1858 – 24 January 1943) was an English trade unionist and politician and Margaret Bondfield (first woman in the cabinet) and she was a labour MP.
  2. Campsite near Pilton

    Hey team, need some help here if anyone's got any info/advice. My pa and step mam managed to get tickets within the last few minutes of the resale on Sunday and they're keen not to camp - they're 64 and 63 respectively - but they have a caravan and are hoping to get in to a campsite near the festival and then hop on a bus every day or alternatively cycle in. They're keen cyclists and I Reckon 6 miles is about their limit but they're wondering if there's any bus links too incase it gets wet and/or they're drunk and can't be arsed to cycle back to the campsite. Any one know any good websites or know any campsites that have bus routes along the way?
