Cropredy Ready?

Gareth Williams (on the Cropredy site) reports:

"Plans are still on track for this year's Cropredy Festival. I have been busy checking on the campsites and negotiating for new fields should any have to be substituted due to the flooding, but no firm decisions will be made regarding the campsites until the end of next week.

The waters have subsided throughout Oxfordshire and at Cropredy the fields are all drying out. With milder weather forcast we are hopeful that this recovery will continue right up to 9 August and beyond.

My thanks to all the local landowners for their advice and help at this difficult time. The ground has taken a real soaking and one worry we all share is that the fields may be damaged by the festival. To this end I would ask you to keep all vehicle movements to a minimum.

We have a cashpoint on site (Field 2), a wonderful bar and many food emporiums. Cropredy itself has two great pubs and John and Christine have stocked the Bridge Stores to the walls in anticipation of your arrival.

PLEASE bring everything you need for the weekend on to site when you arrive rather than making frequent trips to the supermarkets. The less traffic we have on the fields, the better their chance of recovery for 2008.

I shall be posting regular updates here on our website so please log on regularly."
