V Festival - the great clean up

Over a week after the V rock/pop festival in Hylands Park near Chelmsford and the park area is still recovering. The adjacent campsite was littered with abandoned tents - another symbol of the throwaway society, I guess. And other litter marked many of the routes to/from the park. Not to mention parked cars damaged by buses speeding past on their way to the park.

Whereas 40,000 Scouts and leaders spent 12 days in Hylands Park - and the area around the park hardly noticed any negative impact. The Scouts have left a lasting legacy, having helped various community projects (see pictures on Writtle Parish Council website).

In common with most (?) local residents, I am happy to have V in the park. But the negative impact on the local area still needs reducing.
