Thoughtless Driving?

Having filled in and reseeded the ruts in the verges in my part of Creamery Lane some three weeks ago, the areas have had to have new earth and grass seed added some five times since then because of either stupidity or bad driving. The newly germinated grass seed does not survive being driven on. Today at lunch time I had to add more soil in three locations, one was obviously an abortive attempt at parking (completely unnecessary as there was plenty of on road space today), although the other locations can only be due to people driving off the road. However this afternoon someone seems to have deliberately driven off the road over part of the repaired area.

YNOT Clean Up?

I’ve just driven past the YNOT site, and to be honest, was pretty shocked – not just at the state of the fields (litter that will end up in a landfill which in itself is both ironic and depressing considering we live in a place of natural beauty) but the state of the road. The verges are pretty torn up. Who is responsible for fixing them?  And does the license to hold the festival include a time frame to get the place ‘back to normal’? Usually there has been a team of folks cleaning up soon after this event, but not so with the new owners it appears.
