Some bits of Fruitstock went really well. The weather was good,
the bands were brilliant and loads of the new bits, especially the
new, improved kids' area, went down a treat. Lots of people went
away having had a fine (and free) weekend.
But there were some things that didn't work so well, as visitors
to the Fruitstock site will have read in the message we posted on
its front page when we got to work on Monday. Namely...
"We'd like to make a couple of quick apologies. First up,
the toilets. The queues were too long and we're sorry that you had
to wait in line. We're also sorry about starting late on Sunday.
The amount of people that turned up the day before meant that
sorting the rubbish took longer than expected. We also had to make
sure that any broken glass was cleared up so that the site was
safe. Anyway, hope this didn't spoil things for you."
Anyway, thought we should post this message on here as well,
seeing as people who read this might not have read it on the
Fruitstock site. Rest assured, we are sitting here working out how
to make it all work perfectly next time.
