The Basildon Festival is on this weekend; live music on two stages, events, stands and a funfair. It's annual and free and yesterday thousands came to enjoy themselves in the sun. The whole thing is run by Basildon Council and, as ever, Council staff have worked incredibly hard to make the whole thing a success. I went yesterday and met my colleague Cllr. Kevin Blake who was really getting into the festival spirit, and who can blame him. His portfolio includes the festival's organisation and so the lead-up to this weekend must have been pretty stressful. Seeing the huge crowds and everything going like clockwork I'd have been pretty happy too.
