    Well it looks like the CC have finally realised how bad their wardens are. Talking to my niece who happens to be the CC community liaison officer, due to the complaints about wardens they are now putting all the site wardens through a customer service training course.

    It's taken them a long time to get the message. It won't encourage me to rejoin or ever use one of their grotty sites again.

    Not before time, have come across some jobsworths over the years. It must have cost them a few members over the years. We haven't used any of their sites in almost two years and then mainly CL's. Was intending cancelling our membership this year but OH forgot to cancel standing order before we left for France.

    Problem is, who is taking them through what Customer Service actually means. Regrettably most people who try to deliver CS on behalf of a company don't actually communicate prior with the customer to find out exactly what they want from a supplier. Yes CC you are just a supplier, we pay your wages.

    Another thread here which I cant find again !!! Was talking about a cc site that refused someone water because they weren't booked in. Well I emailed head office to find out if this was club policy ,and got a reply telling me yes it was because it could encourage wild camping ..for gods sake where are they coming from . I am considering cancelling my DD to them and just stick with C&CC who do allow you the use of their facilities ..Roy.

    I haven't come across a horrible one yet to be fair, the one in baltic wharf asked us nicely if we could move our van 6 inches to the left though as we weren't completely staight.
    I've been on some where the rules are flouted as well.
    Some people do take advantage of those sites.

    Nor have I come across a bad warden ,but this policy of not allowing you water ,even for payment,is really not on.

    Thats the CC isn't it? I think the C&CC charge £7 to allow members to fill .. empty .. shower etc ..
    But not non members .. which is fine.
    If it's a policy then I can't see the problem. It's in the clubs rules and it's not like it's hard to get water in the UK.
    The clubs are for the members and not a public service.
    I'm pretty sure the last couple of private sites we were on in the UK wouldnt just let people in to fill up and empty either.

    I feel that if the private sites charged a membership fee (which is pretty steep anyway for what I feel are overpriced campsites) and they were full, I wonder if they would deny their members water.

    It would probably depend on their rules. Water is very easy to come by in the UK.

    We don't go to big sites as they have everything we don't want and charge well for it . Pubs small farms we use pub stops . For us .

    Not always easy to come by and rarely as easy as parking next to a tap and filling by hose.
