GUEST,Woodsie Knockholt 2011 (130* d) RE: Knockholt 2011 26 Jun 11


The Tally Ho pub is one of the most enjoyable experiences at Knockholt and any amount that I choose to spend there is value for money and nothing to do with paying 40 to sleep in a field with minimum/zero facilities that is not value for money. A skip? never needed it in the previouse 12 years that I went. Yes and I was usually one of the two or three there on the last Sunday helping Mick Forde with clearing the final ashes. I don't wish to subsidise iresponsible people who can't be bothered to clear their own shit when leaving the field.

By the way, the cost of camping was 3 rising to 4 around 2001 not always 4 as it says above/below. When I was a regular attendee/committe member of folkmob I paid 2 / 1 weekly fee and bought at least 1 raffle ticket ans as myself and Dave Kenningham went EVERY week that came to at least 130 a year. The wood and portaloos were paid for from this money as were the upkeep of the PA system and underwriting of guest nights with lower than expected turnout. There was always still a healthy balnce at the end of the year. This whole putting the price up thing has come about in recent years due to new people appointing themselves to the Folkmob committe (no vote taken for years now) Some of these people newcomers despise subsidising "outsiders" who don't contribue during the year! I will not name them but they have actually told me this. I myself have always looked upon most of the non-folkmob regulars as "invited guests" and it's great to bring more diversity to the event - apart from a few occasions when we have had certain undesirables.

I is sad to see this event, which used to be the highlight of my year - seperate itself from the folkmob.
