    Here are the initial details please book your pitches early as this site is very popular on sunny weekends and in the summer months.

    PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS as there are two separate sets of information, one for statics and one for pitches

    This is an ideal opportunity for a short break or to extend for the whole week at greatly discounted prices


    Tentative Plans

    Friday evening Welcome drinks, possible communal bbq followed by entertainment in main clubhouse

    Saturday, daytime entertainment if you wish to join in, hosted by onsite entertainment team. The outdoor pool will be open depending on weather. There is fishing and a golf driving range, play area and more.

    Possibility of boat "trips" and water fun over the weekend on Highwayman's Ribs depending on sea conditions and weather (currently in planning stages. Small charge may apply)

    Saturday evening

    Birthday Buffet in the restaurant with Karaoke, Rock n Roll and party dances
    alternatively you may join the main entertainment in the clubhouse
    (There will be no charge for the food as we are providing this)

    Sunday

    Sunday birthday & farewell lunch in the restaurant - discounted price being arranged followed by birthday cake.

    We may be joined by other funsters celebrating birthdays on this weekend.

    STATIC ACCOMMODATION PRICES

    Friday 16 May to Monday 20 May 2014 Silver Accommodation £110
    Friday 16 May to Monday 20 May 2014 Gold Accommodation £200
    Friday 16 May to Friday 23 May 2014 Silver accommodation £230

    I have reserved two statics for funsters these are numbers 19 and 20 on Evergreen Way
    Statics 17 and 18 have already been booked for family members

    BOOKING YOUR PITCHES

    We will be using pitches 233 and 234 which should give us a meeting area if we cannot use the sink area.

    You can book now with £10 deposit and balance payable 1 month before the event.

    Please state you are from MOTORHOMEFUN when booking. Please choose from the following pitch numbers. We have reserved 18 pitches all near each other so this is on a first come first served basis. If we fill these quickly there may be an opportunity to obtain further pitches.

    230-233
    235-237
    273-281
    307-312

    PITCH PRICES

    Friday 16 May to Monday 20 May 2014 £16 per night for up to 4 people DOGS free
    Friday 16 May to Friday 23 May 2014 £80 total for up to 4 people DOGS free
    ideal stopover if you are going on to Jaw's Thetford Bash

    Please let me know what pitch you have booked and whether you will be joining us on Sunday afternoon for a meal in the restaurant and birthday cake. The restaurant gets booked up very quickly.

    There is absolutely no pressure to join in with anything. Come, stay as long as you wish, chill, have fun and join in when you want to.

    Hope you can make it :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    This might be do-able for us!

    We're going to the Thetford Bash and were wondering how to make it part of a longer holiday.

    I'll get the map out and see what's where :BigGrin:

    Just to let everyone know that I am unable to change the dates on my birthday bash

    So if anyone doesnt fancy travelling all the way to the Motorhome Show at Newbury which is the same weekend, you are very welcome to join me.

    Hi Gail, I would love to come but because of my circumstances can't say I will .. and I don't want to take up any of the spaces and then let you down. If it is applicable nearer the time I will ask if there is room....... HOWEVER, I hope you will have a wonderful time there .. talk soon. x

    Oooooh

    Thank you Waldegraves :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I have just had a telephone call from Waldegraves, they have allocated all their brand new hard standing pitches for my birthday bash. I will be posting the new pitch numbers soon

    and.................

    Will be putting up a marquee for us, so that if the weather is poorly we have somewhere to meet.

    The hardstanding is near the fishing lake and there is a toilet block, with indoor washing up and showers very nearby.

    Thank you so much. What a thoughtful gesture.

    AND............

    pitches remain at £16 per night including dogs or £80 friday to friday

    What a result :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Well done Gail!

    I am waiting on dates from my sister who is travelling over from South Africa next year, before I book anything! So far she's been coming in June, July, August and now maybe April or May! :RollEyes:

    I enjoyed Waldegraves and hard standing will be such a bonus (was quite pleased with the fact that I got off the other week without having to be pushed or pulled! )

    Really pleased for you!

    Note: New hardstanding pitch numbers

    Thank you Waldegraves for allocating us all their brand new hardstanding pitches for my birthday bash.

    They are also erecting a marquee for us free of charge so that if the weather is poorly we have somewhere to meet. What a thoughtful gesture.

    The hardstanding pitches are near the fishing lake, toilet block, laundry area, showers and indoor washing up area.

    AND............ the pitch price is not being increased.


    The new Pitch numbers are

    Plot TOU24 through to Plot TOU48

    These are all hardstanding

    £32 Friday and Saturday 16th and 17th May (2 nights) leaving by 3pm Sunday
    £48 Friday 16th May to 19th May (3 nights) leaving 3pm Monday
    £80 Friday 16th May to 23rd May leaving by 3pm

    All pitch prices include up to 4 people and 2 dogs.

    These prices are a special rate for funsters and the extra charge for dogs has been waived.

    You can view the pitches using the link below they are near the fishing lake.
