Must apologise to a sound engineer in Marquee 2 who begged me to fetch him a sweeping brush around 10am ish on Sunday,.

I was on the Tidy Team [the litter picker/ bagman with the baby buggy!].

He said he needed it as the show would start in 5 mins,.

I explained that in my condition - age, weight, unfit, creakiness - it'd take much longer than that to get to the Stewards office & back within this deadline, & as he'd already rung them for a brush, assumed it must be en route.

The chap moaned ' oh I might've expected that!' & moped off - however, I was shortly gratified to see a couple of young off duty stewards strolling leisurely hand in hand, staring in each others eyes, with a brush slung over the girl's shoulder towards the marquee!!

I hope the gentleman's needs were addressed!
