    Hi Everyone

    Just wondering if anyone has thought about New Year in the motorhome

    I have made enquiries to a couple of campsites, but as I feared, they are fully booked, they almost laughed when i rang up lol

    If anyone has any plans that can squeeze a few more vans in , let us know please

    Thanks

    Leanne :Smile::Smile:

    im going to watch this one with interest but it all depends on if that white stuff falls and causes the usual chaos as to weather we will attend

    Croft is having the same as last year and i can find out information/ prices if intrested. Although we will be in Spain, but not much to organise if you are intrested in setting up a meet let me know.
    Needs to be quick though as we will be leaving in 3 weeks :BigGrin::BigGrin::Cool:

    Hi there,
    If a meet can be arranged at the Croft like last Xmas and Newyear count me in as a definate.
    Last year was brilliant, just a tad muddy where the tuggers chewed up the field.
    Hears hoping

    Quoted text:-

    ***I have made enquiries to a couple of campsites, but as I feared, they are fully booked, they almost laughed when i rang up lol***

    We've had a similar response from a CC site in Edinburgh when we tried to book up online for Christmas and also for the New Year. It always seems to be "fully booked", I can understand it being booked up for the New Year, but it just seems that the CC sites seem to be full.
    One reason we believe is that people book online, then don't turn up!:Blush:
    Might be down to the fact that you can book up online and don't have to leave a deposit, so no committment and then the same people don't have the decency to cancel.:Angry:

    Hi Try giving the site a phone rather than doing it online we have had this problem with both York and Edinburgh both being fully booked then you phone and get on.

    Kelso sounds ok for the New Year but Xmas must be with the family. I really must get to grips with all this. :Doh:

    New Year

    We belong to a rally group who are planning a new year rally in yorkshire.

    They are a TOTALLY friendly lot.

    Every rally has activities for the kids.

    PM me if anyone wants to join us.

    Subs are £16 per year and a weekend rally tends to be around £8 - £15 + a cheap raffle prize.
