How much of a legend is Michael Eavis? He's gotta be reaching stratospheric levels now. An additional 20 social homes are to be built in Pilton on land donated by the Festival on condition that the homes will serve the local community in perpetuity.
This will bring the total number of homes for the project, which was started in 1996, to 52. Eavis said: "With rural house prices so often out of reach for local people, this gives villagers, most of whom are working families who live around here, the opportunity to live here for the rest of their lives at a social rent. Of all the things I’ve done in my life this is the one I’m most proud of." Via Glastonbury Festival PR
