    We were intending to visit Alde at Wellingborough to get our heating fluid done, having heard how good the service is. Recently read @CazPaul account of gypsy encampment and wondered if anyone has been since then and have they moved on?

    I haven't heard if they have gone but you could just call Alde for an update.

    Hope ours was just a one off, they surely won't be doing that every night, we were most probably unlucky.
    Although it's easy to say that now it's over.

    I'm afraid they said they are still there.I've arranged to stay at a nearby CL overnight.

    I’m currently at Alde, very helpful , friendly team working here.
    I’m very impressed with the industrial estate modern and very big.
    The two caravans are at the end of the road still , with a car outside.
    Stephen the engineer said they haven’t had a problem since @CazPaul had their horrendous experience.
    I wouldn't want to stay over night just for the fact these industrial estates become ghost towns after 6pm.
    We are staying 50 mins away on a very nice site.
    Lovely people to do business with as the saying goes.
    They are taking their alde caravan to the Peterborough show.

    Did a full post on here Tam, they were chucking stuff on a huge fire, explosions going off, riding up and down on motorbikes, shouting, coming and going all evening.
    I went out to look one of them shouted summat, I stayed up all night long.
    It was the night they all arrived so we dropped on unlucky.
    No respect for anyone or anything.
