No disabled camp security.

Postby cockneyjack » Mon Aug 10, 2015 7:25 pm

So I find myself writing about this again................
There was virtually no security in disabled camp again this year. From the entrance from the main path into the camp opposite VIP, my wristband was checked only once the whole weekend. It was worse at the far end where the cars came in where there was no security for the entire festival. This meant it was possible to walk unopposed from the road straight into the camp, (I know, I did it.) All we had was a very few patrols from Showsec a couple of times a night wandering the camp.

Yet again, the most vulnerable people at the festival were the least protected.

Compare this to the entrance to VIP that had a minimum of two Showsec at all times, sometimes more.

Presumably the tickets that those of us in disabled camp includes the price of security in it, just like anyone else and yet we got absolutely no protection. Again.

Not good enough Bloodstock. How many more times?

I found this too. When there was someone on watch at the festival end, he wouldn't make an effort, or would be over talking to the guards on the VIP entrance. I have a good few bugbears to talk about with the disabled camping, but I think it needs to go in a different thread, and I am tired today
I went a way for some time, but I guess I should come back and annoy people due to attending this year

Shall stick a summons on for Lee to review this. Make sure info gets passed along.

Might be worth an email to Will, so that he knows some of the issues with VIP at least, as well & he may be able to advise on other.
