This year, Simon Joined Bob and Lee as part of the FMS Podiatry team at Glastonbury. He was last at the festival 35 years ago, didn’t like it and vowed he’d never go again. Thankfully, he had a great experience this time and can’t wait to go again!
There were 12 Podiatrists all together and during the festival we saw 270 festival goers with foot problems ranging from blisters and splinters, to twisted ankles and fractures, with lots of wounds, ingrowing toenails and the odd bee sting inbetween.
We managed to see some of the festival too, averaging 35,000 steps a day. It’s no wonder there’s a lot of Podiatry issues there.
It’s hard work but someone has to do it
