A huge thank you to all who worked at the Reading & Leeds Festivals!
We've received fantastic feedback regarding the CAT volunteers. This including numerous compliments from the organisers and other teams on-site. Also as can be seen via the forums on the event's websites the public have also thanked all CATs who worked within the campsites!
Jo Shields (Leeds CAT Supervisor) would like to send out a personal thank you:
"Once again a very successful year for the CAT teams at Leeds Festival, your loyalty and dedication was second to none, It takes a special person with a big heart to volunteer at events such as this, so a huge pat on the back for yourselves.
Big thank you to all the shift supervisors that helped and offered to help out on their time off, making sure the teams were out there on time, you really pulled out all the stops this year to make it a success.
Also to my colleague Steph Newman - it was an absolute pleasure working with her this year, and she was an asset to the team and very much hope she will be joining us again next year at Leeds.
Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2008."
As would Tavis Russell (Reading CAT Supervisor):
"A huge thank you to all of the Reading Festival CATs of 2007... I hope you had a great time being the 'eyes and ears' and hope that most of you will be able to return in 2008.
Special thanks to those of you that kept me amused during the weekend... You know who you are! And extra special thanks to those who put in extra hours to help the team run more efficiently...Sincere gratitude to the Shift Supervisors;Dom, Liane, Dave, Mike and Jeri.
I hope you all had a safe journey home and have all caught up on sleep and hope to see you all again in a festival field next year or sometime during the year reminiscing over a drink.
Once again thank you all. I hope your Reading Festival CAT experience was as great as mine.
Thank you for the many photos which have been emailed to us. We'll be adding these to the website festival galleries in the coming weeks. If you haven't yet sent your photos and would like to share them with us all please email them over!
Again many thanks to all - your efforts helped in making the Reading & Leeds Festivals the best of the summer for so many!
Best wishes - Jo, Edd, Mark, Rob, Steph, Tavis
