Commenting on Facebook, Tim Jones said: “Quiet and peaceful in the Field of Dreams this morning.

“So far a great festival with so much respect for fellow van lifers.

“All credit to the VLF crew, the hard work is paying off.”

‘Paul N Lona Brown’ said: “Having a great time, we have met the loveliest, craziest, funniest group of people – you know who you are.

“Thanks to the organisers and rest of team.”
