Sue coulson Can't help with repair suggestions near you. However
Our first new van, forgot I was in Spain and turned wrong way onto a campsite, took the whole back bumper off, fortunately lights not affected we were in the first week of a trip away. the gafffer tape held it on for 8 weeks and we had a great trip. so carry on and have a wonderful time.

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
Whenever there is the slightest chance of a potential bump, I always try to stop even though I may have right of way etc. but even then it might not prevent a a collision and how could you prove you weren't moving at the time (dash cam perhaps?) ... So it's not a foolproof method.

As regards the OP's situation I agree the first thing you should try to do is not to worry, everything can be repaired, though people tend to take longer if repairs are possible!

Lots and lots of options for repairs and recommendations are usually your best option.

Are the insurance involved at all? If not think very carefully before saying anything to them. I think the first thing is to post some photos and maybe email someone like Cannock resprays to see if they could give a ballpark figure for a repair
If you do not intend to report the incident to your insurers be very careful what you post on any forum. In particular do not post your registration.
