    just seen forecast for next week, dry and mostly sunny for virtually whole country, checked on BBC weather for 10 days and looks about the same right through past the BH weekend

    Good for all trips, but looking cold overnight

    Chester for us, first meet, looking forward to it :thumb:

    If you see us inside, don't peer, just come on in :thumb:

    Bev has made me agree to put our awning up for Lola, if it goes up I will be looking for advice / comment to help sort out our unresolved issues with Kampa, we have a Kampa Air, great idea but legs not strong enough to hold shape, twist / distort in slightest breeze

    See some you there hopefully

    David Bev and Lola

    Thank you for the invite. :thumb:

    We are still deciding whether to bring Ruby our Scottish terrier, I know we can't take dogs into the food festival and we are not sure yet what we will be doing each day. She loves the motorhome though. Do you know if there are dog friendly facilities?

    We will be bringing our mutt, so we'll be sure to find dog friendly facilities.
    Be nice to meet another Dawn too :Smile:

    The Met Office don't seem quite so optimistic.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 to Friday 25 Apr 2014:

    Turning generally more unsettled as cloud and outbreaks of rain, already affecting some northern and western parts early Wednesday, spread erratically southeastwards across the UK. The rain heavy at times in the north and west, but probably mostly light and patchy towards southeastern England where it may not arrive until Thursday. Remaining predominantly unsettled thereafter with showers or longer spells of rain affecting many areas, but with some drier and brighter interludes. The showers wintry at times over northern hills. The more unsettled conditions will tend to be towards the northwest, with the best of the fine spells in the southeast. Windy at times, with temperatures near average or rather cold, particularly in the northwest, with the risk of overnight frost, but possibly warmer further southeast.



    Us too, on both counts. See you there.

    Might have to acquire some grip mats to get off the racecourse if the Met Office are correct. :Wink:

    And there I was all cheerful for a change and then you came along :Eeek:

    Only joking, I don't do cheerful

    I hope the BBC have got it right, the temperatures are OK not much sun, but little or no rain predicted, that will do for me

    Overnight temps might mean I can try out my new Karcher condensation sucker upper

    But can I please borrow your mats if I am wrong?? :thumb:

    I only go up to Easter Monday so hope you're rain comes in after we have all gone home, just as I pull onto a Welsh CL for a couple of nights!!

    Particular dog facilities I am not sure, but there are certainly lots of good walks within 5 minutes of the race course, 5 minutes and you are at the canal, walk in the opposite way to Chester, you and the dogs can go as far as you like.

    Also walk up to the river bank again the opposite way to Chester brilliant for dogs no traffic apart from the occasional bike, really good walk.
