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.
