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.
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.

Join us for our meet at the end of Sept in the heart of the National Forest at Conkers Camping and Caravanning site.
There are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities direct from the campsite including the Ashby World Heritage Trail – a three and a half mile route following the old Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway.
The fees for camping is £6 per tent per night, great savings on the usual site rates.
If you plan to join us please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I need to let the site know asap of names and numbers that are planning to camp.
