    Brilliant news everybody ,Im holding another charity ralley at Holton Lee near Poole ,I did one last year got 11 vans and we all had a great time. The cost will be £11 per unit for the weekend its a proper campsite no hard standings or electric , but good well drained ground , with toilets and showers , and water tap , elsan at back of toilet block , and plenty of room to park the van , nice woodland walks with views over poole harbour , 4 miles from poole town centre , youll be able to go into poole and park at baiter park slipway, sandbanks etc. Now we need as many units as possible , and make it worth while for the Holton Lee charity. And a bit of good weather. Hope to see many of you there . Please click on links for HoltonLe details , maps of site , poole , and surrounding areas ..any questions PP me or ask on forum , thanks Ron.

    oops sorry , 29th feb to 2nd of march , these dates were picked so as not to clash with the trade shows. Also wesley from solar solutions says hell pop down if we ask him on sat morning to show off his wares and if he does any buisness hell give 10% to the charity .

    For all of you who did not support Woody with this charity event you missed a damn good time. The weather was excellent, the scenery was stunning, the wildlife was very visible, the company was convivial, all in all a cracking event. Woody tells me that he will organise the event again next year, possibly March 6th or there abouts. If your serious about your motorhoming you really shouldn't miss it, or there again you could leave it parked on the drive and watch the telly:Smile:
