Droitwich Spa April/May 2022

Our return visit to the equestrian centre near Droitwich-Spa was well supported with units from various areas of the country.

April/May 2022

The sun joined us for the first couple of days but the showers that followed didn’t stop the show.

The Canal festival was in full swing throughout the weekend and a good time was had by all!

The site has already been booked for a return visit in 2023!

Great support for Wolverley Meet 2022!

An excellent turn out at our recent Meet at the Wolverley Camping and Caravanning Club site.

A lovely place, well recommended and the shone shone down!

View from the Club Site towards St. John the Baptist Church, Wolverley

Our social activities went well and the nearby canal side pub proved very popular for dining out as did the nearby tea rooms.

Cranberry Moss – a little gem!

The rain didn’t stop a brave band of units enjoying a very pleasant weekend at Cranberry Moss. Yes, a little gem: excellent facilities and and a very convenient location. Bus to Oswestry or Shrewsbury right on the door step. With Halloween thrown in and the sun coming out during the day who cares if it rains at night!

A few ‘in your own van’ quizzes racked our brains and some well dressed Halloween Vans made the weekend; topped off with shopping in the nearby towns. Thank you to Edith for Stewarding assisted by Andrea and Rob. Thank you also to everyone for attending so nice to see some new members coming along too.

Hereford Rowing Club Meet

What a brilliant meet! Fully booked and enjoyed by all. Breakfast in the Club and food available throughout the day.

Walks along the river and just a gentle stroll into the beautiful city of Hereford.

It was really nice to hear of old friends meeting up again by chance!

We will be back in 2021 to meet more friends old and new!

THS at Stow on the Wold

Our THS at Stow on the Wold proved very popular. We had a nice mix of motorhomes and Caravans all keen to enjoy the local countryside surrounding Stow on the Wold. Some came for a few days some for a week or more. The local markets and pretty Cotswold villages proved to be a great attraction particularly on market days.

The village bus operating during the week was very useful and well supported.

The ramblers soon had their boots on and found a nearby 11th century church.

We plan to return in 2021 – more information in due course.

Parking for motorhomes at nearby Bourton on the Water with its Motor Museum and interesting riverside shops is particularly good being close to the village.

Sunshine at Peak Rail!

Following our event at Shardlow Marina it was fantastic to find the sun following us to Peak Rail in the peak district. Following us too was a very good number of units and we all enjoyed a very pleasant, if not hot weekend in the sun watching the trains and discovering the local area.

The trains were running a limited daytime service to Matlock and back but with a bus stop right outside the site.

and nice walks along the riverside and to the shopping outlet a very pleasant weekend was enjoyed by all.

Sunshine at Shardlow!

Twenty two pre-booked units attended our  ‘pop up’ campsite at Shardlow Marina near Derby on the 2nd of July.

The sun maintained its presence enabling members to explore the local river/canal walks and nearby pub gardens!

The showers that fell Saturday evening were hardly noticed as England triumphed in the Quarter Finals of the European Football Cup.

Happy faces all round and a wonderful weekend watching the boats.
