Subject: RE: Towersey 05 - Thoughts Of A First Timer
Over all I enjoyed the festival. In particular the whole kids tent thing makes the event accessable, and great fun for the kids. Well played you lot.

There was a lot of feeling that this year the stewards had been told to be extra tight on the rules. There was a real farce with the fences going on. There were MANY more jobs worth stewards this year. The security firm had managed to hire some VERY unhelpfull people in places. I fully accept that many punters are rude, but that doesn't mean some stewards aren't too! The festival had a different feel, and for the money I figure we will reconsider next year and give it a miss. Let the apparent new committee (or who ever has introduced so many odd changes) calm down a bit. But it's not just the organisers, the reception we got from some punters in the dance tent was very rude. Perhaps I just need a break from Towersey!
