    Black Lives Matter

    I'm glad to see this debate. As it recognises there is a problem. In that sense having discussion can help us get to a solution. One of the reasons why I love the festival so much is because of our inclusive it feels. I've lost count if how many times people say when they find out I go "You Go to Glastonbury?!?!" Recoiling in horror and shock as if I'd just curled one out in the street. I go because it offers me a few days respite a year of having to tone down and fit in. I can just be. Its exhausting having to constantly adjust to an ideal of what society thinks I should be, especially as a black woman. I'm constantly fighting what they expect to find (Angry, aggressive, mad etc....) I think in general what we are seeing and reacting to however shocking are symptoms of underlying deep rooted problems that until we address at source we will not have progress. The inequalities in economic circumstance, education, healthcare, justice, social status - whilst these are not exclusive to black people they disproptionally impact and that's what needs to be fixed and why we say right now #blacklives matter, it's not to diminish other problems, its merely to try to spotlight this one.
  2. I saw the boys at V fest a few years ago. They were great. Needs the sunshine though...

    People on Furlough....

    We were looking at 8 weeks unpaid before the Furlough came in. Company advised we could take other jobs and we have a very active recruitment board where they are actively recommending jobs we take so I think it really depends on what in your contract. We have had a number of firms contact our HR department offering roles for people to take paid and as volunteers also...

    I'm finding getting up a little bit later is really helpful. (I used to be a 5am gym bunny before work) so starting the day slightly slower and taking more time vs rushing is well worth it.

    In planning my next few weeks I came across this. Thought I'd share as may be of interest/use to others https://www.open.edu/openlearn/free-courses/full-catalogue

    People on Furlough....

    I dropped back in here after day 1 of being on Furlough leave, and I can see I'm in the same boat as a few of you. Really keen to know what/how we all manage though it I'm also sorry to hear about those in different circumstances. I was facing a pay reduction before the scheme was announced so happy to be Furloughed now as it means less of a drop, but appreciate not everyone is in same boat. I am in the camp of missing work though, will take some time to get used to new routine....
  7. Thought it might be nice to have a thread for us on Furlough to talk about what we are doing with the time.... maybe will end up with some nice stories etc to talk about by end of it. I can start.... I'll be going on Furlough from 1st April, as work for an Airline.... haven't yet decided what to do for 8 weeks off as I've never been off for such a long period in the 16 years I've been working. I don't have kids, and will be getting paid during so could easily volunteer in some way, just haven't decided how or what...
  8. https://www.vox.com/2020/3/10/21171481/coronavirus-us-cases-quarantine-cancellation if we really want to delay the spread and protect the NHS, its seems like this approach would be wise. Nicked this off Barack Obama who seems pretty same compared to current potus
  9. I'm super pragmatic about it. I know I'll still be at the farm come june however it happens. It's been the most weird weekend, and although I've never taken it for granted... missing out this year so far had reestablished how much it really means. I am happy to help who ever I can!! X
  10. Checking into this thread for the first time in 10 yrs xx
  11. I wonder if it's a test for a future ticket allocation process?
  12. Not at all familiar. First time in 10 years.... feels weird
  13. Popping this up as interested to get a head start on T day, is there a bunch of brand new people who fell in love with the festival after there first time or have people been turned off?
