Here is the program for the weekend.
The forecast is good so don't forget your sunscreen.

Chairmans Choice Birthday Present

posted 20 Jun 2015, 22:56 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 20 Jun 2015, 22:56 ]

Campers attending the meet at Hook Farm this weekend were surprised to receive an unannounced birthday present.
The committee had decided that one meet this year would be termed "Chairman's Choice" and would be at 1975 prices to reflect this our 40th. birthday year and Hook Farm was the meet chosen.
Thus campers were delighted to be told that their fee for the weekend was just £1 per night.

Wymondham Music Festival meet 26 - 28 June

posted 18 Jun 2015, 11:31 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 19 Jun 2015, 00:38 ]

Site will open at 10:00 Friday 26th June

The meet is the middle weekend of the festival it is a multi event multi location festival. With fringe events in some of the local pubs. If you look at the two wymfest urls below you will see the programme etc.

Very close to the meet site is The Wymondham Station for the Mid Norfolk Heritage Railway which will be running steam while we are there. They also run Cream Tea specials and the Breckland Fryer a Fish and Chip special

Wymondham Abbey which is well worth a visit in itself apart from being a festival venue is also in very easy walking distance from the site.

Urls for both the MNR and Wymondham Abbey can be found below.

Brian Daniels got an agreement to extend the meet but unfortunately that was after the 2 week deadline that is set by the exempted camping dept at HQ so the dates will have to stand as 26-28 June. If the meet is a success then we will consider a longer one in the future.

So if you want a longer meet on another occasion please support this weekend to convince the land owner it is worth repeating.

Treasurer wanted

posted 18 Jun 2015, 04:50 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 18 Jun 2015, 04:50 ]

How are you with figures? Do you fancy taking control of the group’s coffers?
Well our treasurer, Kath, is retiring this year, after 4 years in the post, so we need to find a replacement. The treasurer’s post runs from January to December so we need to get a new treasurer in place by November.
The good news is that the accounts have all moved on line now so it’s easy to get assistance from HQ in Coventry for any queries and we provide a laptop PC for your use. If you want to know more then please don’t hesitate to ask Kath or any other committee member for more details. This is a really essential post to be filled so please give it some thought.

For Sale

posted 8 Jun 2015, 23:14 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 8 Jun 2015, 23:15 ]

A couple of people have asked about adding a "For Sale" section to the web site so it's now been added.

This is a bit experimental but we can always alter it if we need to.

Hi everyone,

Hi all

I have received a call from Howard & Ruth this morning, he was discharged from hospital yesterday and is at present back in his van with Ruth relaxing in the Devon sunshine.  They are staying there until the weekend, and then they are going to make a lazy journey home, overnighting at Salisbury and maybe another site on their way.  Torbay hospital are certain that it was still the pneumonia that he caught in Addenbrookes that was still lingering in his systems as anything caught in hospital is more difficult to get rid of.  They have given him a much stronger antibiotic and hopefully as long as he has remembers to take it easy and not rush around he is now on his way to recovery.

All the best
