    It would appear there seems to be a gap in the calendar for the above date.

    There are plenty of pitches available at the moment and the site is RV friendly.

    Can we ascertain if there is any interest in having a meet here.

    The price for this particular weekend is £14.10 per night including hook up - all pitches are hardstanding. (This is a caravan and camping club site so the price quoted takes your discount into account).

    Interests please as soon as possible so that we can get the ball rolling on this.

    Quote:
    A most attractive level and terraced site with spacious pitches, situated on the quieter, southern edge of the Peak District with some of the best views and walks in the region. An ideal site for families and those who want to enjoy the Peak District without the crowds.
    You'll want to take advantage of some of the best walking and most dramatic views in the Peak District. Tittesworth Reservoir and nature reserve is just a short walk away. The town of Leek with its splendid Victorian buildings, cobbled streets and selection of mill shops is only 3 miles away. Titterworth Reservoir (1 mile) offers an adventure playground, fishing, nature reserve and a sensory garden for the blind and partially sighted. Only twenty minutes' drive from Buxton, Bakewell and Hartington, you are well placed for visits to the world famous Wedgwood, Spode and Royal Doulton potteries as well as the Silk Mill in Macclesfield.

    Why not take a leisurely barge trip along the Caldon Canal, or you can opt for a steam train ride from Cheddleton or a family day out to Alton Towers (9m) where you can experience the 'white knuckle rides' amongst the other attractions on offer here.

    Directions
    From Buxton on A53 - site on L in abt 9m (200yds past Blackshaw Moor sign).
    From Leek on A53 - site on R ¼m past Three Horseshoes Inn on L.
    Note: no late night arrivals area.

    Hi Suzy

    Yes we came to the agreement of that on the phone as she will need your membership number for you to claim the discount. You must tell her you have an RV because RV's get the allocated spaces. Other motorhomes can choose when they arrive where they want to go.

    So that's 3 of us so far.

    Any more??

    Hi Lyndon

    Oh go on then - I think there's room. Remember to tell the site that you have an RV though. Your pitch will be reserved.



    Ok so at this point I will ring the site and then I will put this on the calendar.

    Hi Ruth

    You have a pm.

    Just let me know when you have booked. If you are not members I'm pretty sure there will be an extra cost involved but don't know how much.

    Let me know when you have booked and I will add you to the list.

    Don't forget to tell them you have an RV as your pitch will be reserved.

    See you soon.

    Pammy

    Hi Ruth

    Just booked our pitch. If you are not a member of the caravan club then it will be an extra £7 per pitch per night extra. Obviously the best thing would be to sign up - you would soon get your money back.:Wink:

    Let me know when you have made your booking and I will put you on the list.:thumb:

    Hi Raoul

    This is a Caravan club site so you will need your membership to make the booking. If you are not a member then it will cost you an extra £7 per night extra. You are better joining the club anyway as you will get your money back. eg if you join when you turn up at this meet I think the discount comes in straight away. Give it some thought.

    Oh and by the way the meet is definitely on, bookings are being taken as we speak:Rofl1:

    Geo says he has spoken to the 'gas expert' but he didn't turn up to do it:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Not gone into work today as I had a terrible night - didn't sleep very well at all. I have a slight headache as well which started 10 minutes after the procedure had finished. Rang Eric and he said he could just cope without me:Eek!::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi Pammy.

    Please forgive me for being so chatty when we dont know you.

    We would be interested in a meet on this date especially as we live in Lincolnshire and the Peak district is one of our most favourite places.

    If you arrange anything let us know the details please and how to book etc.

    Regards

    Roger & Marion

    Hello Geo. Thanks for the welcome.
    We are looking to get out at least once per month, which will be more than last year, but we have other commitments that draw on our time as well.
    We have registered an interest in a couple of other meets so Im sure we will meet up one day.
    Roger

    Hi Roger

    Welcome to our site.

    These are very laid back affairs and anyone is very welcome to attend. We have a great time.

    I hope you decide to join this meet and if so you should ring:

    Telephone
    General enquiries 01538 300203


    This is a caravan club site so if you are a member you need to have your membership number ready when you ring. If not there will be an extra cost of £7 per night to pay. If you join the club then you will get the discount straight away when you turn up on the weekend.

    Please let us know if you make a booking and I will add you to the list.

    Hope to meet you both soon.
