Lack of mud was pretty brilliant as well, though no one can be thanked for that.

Oh yes they can and you are all welcome. Fine weather follows me when I am on holiday. It really does. Ask my partner. He is considering selling my services to weddings and festivals and any other outdoor events.

Post festival depression setting in badly least I've got Moira in less than two weeks!

Tell me about it! Can we get festivals paid for on the NHS? Maybe near to home mini festivals to stem the withdrawal symptoms.

I did not clock the Marion Button thread at all. Must check that. Hope she will make a seedy and full recovery.

for more comments from the stewarding side I just posted he following on the other Sidmouth thread.

Unfortunately the first news letter ran out before we could get one and as stewards we needed it. We had to borrow the Ham box office copy and mark changes in our main programme. The lanyards for holding passes also gone and we arrived on Thursday 29 July well before festival started.

If possible, it might be good to have a different coloured lanyard (or armband) for stewards (even if we have to buy them) so there is a visible presence to punters who have questions/concerns. Someone mentioned to me that there should be more stewards in the high viz vests just wandering about town. But in the event you don't have enough stewards, then I for one have no problem stepping up to fill the one off needs when I am off duty. The special lanyard or armband would facilitate that.
