I think that's a bit unreasonable, Pete. I quite enjoyed June, and the absence of a marquee had a beneficial effect in that people did stay round the fire. The rain was mostly merciful and mostly stayed away.

The lorry strops have never yet been correctly used, and the way they are often used is unlikely to be beneficial and might damage the marquee frame. Videos can be found on youtube of how to do it right.

The problem with the loos was people putting too much bogroll down them.   This was aggravated by the wrong sort of bogroll being used - you can't use domestic fluffy in chemikahzees, it expands rather than dissolves in the fluid. But it's a mistake that anyone could make.

As far as I know there were no water supply problems at all.
