Upcoming meets updated.

Firstly… Happy New Year to all our members, hope you had a good one (although a bit quieter than usual!)

The meets list for 2021 has been finalised. A bit later than usual due to playing catch-up after the lockdown.

Hopefully we will be able to get out camping again soon.
Obviously some of these meets may still not go ahead due to site closures and the current Covid crisis.

We will update them and add more details as we know more.

Update Sept 20

As you all know there’s not a lot been happening this year due to the Covid19 outbreak.
All group meets and THS’s had been cancelled and although some sites have started to open again only a few have facilities allowing us lightweight campers without own sanitation to camp.

Although some of us have been fortunate (or not!) to have been able to work throughout this, Many of our members have been and are still self isolating.

Next years meets are in the process of being planned, hopefully we will get back to some sort of “normality” when official meets start again in March.

Again due to not much happening this year the Bulletin has been a bit short of content. If you have anything that could be included (tour reports, old camping trips etc) our editor would be very pleased to receive it.

Again, if you plan to go camping and want some company you are welcome to post on our Facebook group page and someone may decide to join you.

Annual General Meeting and meet weekend cancelled.

As well as the Easter meet this coming weekend (which was due to be held at Cheddar Camping and Caravanning club site) we have also had to cancel the AGM and camping meet at Kingsbury C+CC site over the weekend 15th -17th of May.

We are waiting for confirmation but at the moment it also looks likely that the early June meet at Keswick will be the same.

We will post more information as and when we hear from HQ. Hopefully we wont have to cancel too many of the meets.

The fees for camping is £6 per tent per night, great savings on the usual site rates.
