    I have found what I think will be a very nice site for the bank holiday weekend in May. And just £5 a night!!!:Smile: May 2 - 5 (fri - mon)

    Bourne - The Wishing Well Inn
    Main Street
    Dyke
    Nr Bourne
    Lincolnshire
    PE10 0AF

    Numbers are limited to 6 vans at this point in time, so if you do wish to join us, please let me know. I have reserved the spaces in my name, so no need to book with pub direct.

    Here are the brief details:

    The Camping and Caravanning Club - SiteSeeker - Details

    They can normally take 20 vans, but we are limited to 6 because of a pre booking by caravan club.

    They have hardstanding in the event of bad weather, and dump point suitable for European vans, and possibly American RV's (on a lucky day).
    There is of course fresh water and toilet facilities in the pub, and excellent home baked pub grub for those who don't wish to cook.

    I think that this looks like a really good venue, so let me know if you would like to come.

    Hi Deb

    No hook up, and I can't see dogs being a problem as they are a public house - but you might want to check with them if you are thinking of coming.

    Do you ever have meets nearer to me.

    I would love to meet up but as I have a boy of 14 still at school, the earliest we can leave Southampton is about 4pm on a Friday Lincoln would be at least 5 hours for me and on a Friday afternoon/evening almost certainly an hour more I'd dare say.

    I'm not expecting one right on my doorstep but say maybe one needing only say a 2hour drive for me.

    Surely not everyone on here lives North of Watford?

    Regards Pat

    Why not try arranging one yourself? I am sure you could find some interested parties.

    Hi Pat

    I'm sorry, I know how frustrating it can be. There are some meets and shows we cannot attend for exactly the same reason.

    Any member can propose a meet although there seem to be just a few of us who grab the bull by the horns and post one.

    If you would like to suggest a meet nearer to you, I am certain you would get a good response - and if it is two hours from us, we would gladly like to meet up with you.:Wink:

    Alternatively on the longer weekend meets, you might consider it worthwhile to travel that bit further - but rest assured, a lot of us are in the same boat due to family and/or work commitments.:Sad:

    Hi Haganap

    .

    I would love to be able to arrange a meet but due to personal circumstances (my wife's ongoing treatment) it is not possible at the moment, to commit myself to a certain date as things can and do change on a weekly basis.

    I did organise a rally for the ARV club (14 RVs attended) at my place last September but ironically sods law meant my wife had to have an operation (brain surgery) the week before the rally. Thanks to some help from some close friends the rally went ahead and was a success.

    So as you see my hands are tied and whats more I don't know how long for!

    Regards Pat

    Nice pictures Pat. Looks like you had a lot of fun.

    Perhaps when you can, you would like to organise something - two or three weeks notice is adequate for most folk if that helps.

    In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for any southern meets, and hopefully there will be some this coming year!

    Hi Rockie

    Yes here's hoping, it does depend on the weather too as the field does hold it's water and become soft.

    Should be at Newbury and Stratford I hope

    Regards Pat
