Message from Glastonbury Green Councillor Gabriel Avalon:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who was involved in making today’s flash mob in Glastonbury such a success. Even the rain didn’t stop a massive crowd from turning out to show the banks that Glastonbury will not go down quietly.
There are so many people to thank that to do so individually would take all day but I would like to pay special mention to Charles Hazlewood for conducting on the day and for being an all round good egg and getting right behind us.
Also mention goes to Kevin Redpath who even as I write this is working away to create the YouTube video of the weekend and who also rewrote the words that we sung today.
Dave and John and the staff of Heaphys Café who have put up with us taking up his tables while we have had the many meetings needed to organise today. Dave also very kindly supplied the coffee for the videographers and press and TV people at the town hall.
Paul Manning from the Blue Cedar Print room and Jan and Shirley from Fragrant Earth have also given invaluable input and help to make today happen.
And let’s not forget the towns taxi drivers who made such a wonderful end to the day.
And finally thank you the people of this wonderful quirky, unique, town for showing you care and for literally singing in the rain. Thank you all for coming.
This is just the start. We are already working on new and exciting ways to show the banks that we will not be left without banking provision and that the economy of our town will not be broken just because an accountant miles away decides to shave a bit of the running costs of the branches.
Please share this message so that as many as possible can see it
Cllr Gabriel Avalon
St. Benedict’s Ward Councillor
