    In a word, awsome!


    We had a great time, got back 6ish last night, that age old work thing so we couldn't stay:cry:

    Weather was amazing, cloudless skys all day Saturday, I think this 'it always rains in Wales' is a rouse to stop us English cluttering up thier roads with our MHs:Rofl1:

    As usual (well usual for our three shows so far) exellent company and marshalling (Roger) and thanks to Jim and Sian variously but not least for the bacon butties Sunday Morning:thumb: I did try to be good hiding behind JJs Wagon but you can only watch so many butties walk by before 'resistance is futill' springs to mind:Rofl1:

    We just got back, sun is still shining, just spent a while watering the veg patch which looked a bit parched to say the least:BigGrin:

    Great meet, large gatherings of people, sat in circles in the sun, with plenty of chat and laughter. Nice to see some familiar faces and put names to lots of new ones. We had a great time:thumb::thumb:

    Lovely to meet some of you guys. Weather was glorious.

    We unfortunately only stayed Thursday and Friday night as we had to be back home.

    Should have took the dogs with us, but HeWMBO said no.

    Still we met lots of happy go lucky FUNsters and look forward to the next one. Roger was a real sport and looks brilliant.

    Such a friendly lot and we really enjoyed the meet.

    Also nice to meet Jim, sorry we could not stay for the bacon butties, maybe next time

PeterH not only excellent brain for the quizzes but wonderful cook .... ta for the lava bread ... still thinking about it though... thanks as ever to Maggie Chatter, Carol and Ed, and especially a big big thank you to Dick and Barbara (Dellwood) who helped me through so much this weekend and made me laugh continuously so that I have 100% more wrinkles.

    Had a great time and met some nice people,Jim,Maggie,Hayleylulu and of course Roger.
    Sorry if we were a bit quiet but being the newcomers and arriving late meant we were a bit out of the mix if you know what I mean, we will be early for the next one.

    Both my friends had a great time (their 1st time in a MH) and Brenda is busy badgering Mick to start looking for one of their own.

    Good trip back, I managed to get my old Riviera up to 70mph :BigGrin:
    Only once and it was downhill but even so she didn't complain, then had to have a fuel top up on the M50. £1.32 a litre :Angry:. Think i'll stick to 50mph next time

    Thanks for the destinations book Jim, terrific work

    We had a wonderful time and arrived home safely just before 6 pm. Thanks to Roger and Sue for marshalling and Jim and Sian for the bacon butties.

    It was great to meet so many people and put faces to the names. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to the next one that we can get to.

    Thank you Roger and Sue for looking after us so well, and for your brave feat for the club!

    Thank you Jim and Sian for all you do for us Funster's and the great Bacon Butties on Sunday Morning even though you may have liked a lie in :Wink:

    Thank you also to Hayleylulu - Martin and Lyn for the security locks you gave us, which will help somewhat deterring those opportunists jimmying the doors and John some peace from me about it ;0) lol :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Sorry to hear about this Phil, we can guess how upset you must be feeling about it , at least no-one else was hurt.

    Ahh Thanks Phil , but that is what us Funster's like to do, make everyone welcome!

    ps it was the Apple Pie and biscuits that cinched it :BigGrin::BigGrin:


    Would also if i can on this post "THANK" Mark of CLS after having a very exhausting day sparing time to check over our Fridge to find the fault for us :thumb::thumb::thumb:
