According to Farmers Weekly Interactive, Robin Page, chairman of the trust, has contacted the police claiming the festival could have breached the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
He has also written to Michael Eavis, the festival's organiser, asking for next year's event to be moved to August because June is a critical time for farmland birds. "With such an invasion of people, noise and light, many nests could have been disturbed," Page told the website. "It is a crazy time to hold such an event." Given the rain this year, many revellers would probably agree.
Voluntary sector campaigner Bob Holman is on a crusade against 'super-charities' such as Barnardo's, Mencap and the NSPCC. In last week's edition of Socialist Worker, Holman bemoaned the super-charities' selective campaigning.
"To be fair, the super-charities have objected to the Government's harsh penal policies, the treatment of asylum seekers and the complications of the tax credits payment system," he wrote. "But they draw back from attacking the system itself. They wouldn't breathe a word against royalty owning wealth that, if redistributed, could lift many out of poverty."
The week's final moan came from a charity mascot, although this time with particularly good reason. The man who dresses up as Hospital Radio Burnley's dinosaur mascot has spoken to local paper The Citizen of his disgust at the thugs who twice attacked him when he was out collecting funds. "This has really put me off wearing the suit," he said.
