    Hi, I am also a member of the camping and caravanning club, which is great for me as working full time, as the meets are generally local and cost effective.

    They are quite family orientated as a lot of the regulars in the east essex DA that I go to have children.


    Happy days, S:thumb:

    Hi Roky
    Welcome and I hope we get to meet you and your family soon. We have granddaughters of 8 and 5 and I'd love to take them to a rally. We went to our first one in Norfolk and thoroughly enjoyed it and are off to Misterton, Doncaster in May and Newark I suspect, although not booked yet. You wchair won't be a problem at all at any meet. :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Welcome Roky and Family. There is the Carmarthan show in May (13-15) that will no doubt attract Funsters to organise a meet. If you cant wait that long look on the Calendar and see where else Meets are on, if they are not too far away that is. But dont let distance put you off Loujess travelled from Leeds for the Norfolk meet last November. Ivy - Graham and I have been working down at Waveney RC for two days this week and the new pool area is looking super.

    Hi Roky, no worries joining a rally, at the September rally in Shepton Mallet there are usually at least three other members in wheelchairs. Some of the families have children so they are not left out. We always have fun. We were all newbies once and were all made welcome so don't hold back, get stuck in there.

    Hi and welcome Roky,
    If you could make the Newark meet, you could then come on down to Alton Water Suffolk to a mini meet there, you can do a 8.5 miles circuit of the water, so three times would be a marathon! Check out the rally listings on the right hand side of the home page, listed as April Fools meet. Whatever you do, have fun! :Smile: Jane & Bob :Smile:

    Not sure if you went into the pool, but they have now put walls up and made a separate cafe area, so its not too hot to sit and eat or drink, new changing rooms, air con. Hopefully back up and running end of Feb.
