    easter wkend

    Stay at home the weather is going to be awful, we have just managed to get out of Shropshire, 8" of snow and -3` last night, most of the campsites were closed.
    Chester race course despite the fantastic location and food show will be a quagmire.

    If you click on to the WWWchesterfoodanddrinkfestival on my signature all details will come up for you. then in the corner click on camperfest for that information. :Smile:


    The benifit of Chester is that we are on the edge of the field the large solid marquee's with the food and drink halls, Chester itself with the Rows you are under cover going around Chester if you choose, Get wrapped up warm, walk down the river, stroll through the park, look around the museum, more resturants and bars in Chester than you could want, and lots of good company, In North Wales we do have quite a bit of snow, but Chester is not to bad at all.

    If you want to join us you are very welcome. :Smile:

    Heading out your way gromit to Searles at Hunstanton,plenty for the kids to do and good evening entertainment.A short walk into town for good fish and chips,or a choice of pubs and a nice long beach for the dog to run on.
    The dogs pretty pissed off about the weather but I've told him he's coming anyway,if he's got any sense he will bring his coat!

    Forecast is a bit of rain and sun. We are are FUN, failure to have FUN is not an option.

    Chris can get on his zimmer frame, collect his pension, buy a few boiled sweets and slump in front of his fire instead.

    But cry off if you don't like food, there is food to die for. We do well, we get a head start on the plebs who won't hit the food 'till weekend. Make the most of Friday it's much quieter.

    Then you have one of the UK's iconic cities. Roman remains, intact walls, river cruises, the unique shopping area. Chester is steeped in history.

    Oh alright then, consider yourself let off. But we've our eyes ( 15000 of them ) on you, don't pull this feeble stunt again.


    Eh, when I were a lad, w'd pay 2n6 t' have t' knee fixed in t' morning an do t' paper round in t' afternoon.

    Hey that's why we had to miss out on the Chester meet last year, Jean had just had hers done! We'd still have gone but she couldn't climb into the 'van'. Tried getting a rope but that didn't work so we had to stay at home like you. Chin up, it will be worth it. ::bigsmile:

    Easter Weekend.

    This weekend on the beach lawns at Weston-super-mare a classic car rally is being held, In past years this has been a well attended and popular event, with lots of classic,not so old, and more modern well cared for cars. Including jaguar E types,M.G.s classic buses, with several enthusiastic clubs showing off their proud cars. the event is on easter saturday and sunday from 11 am. all out doors and is free. It is organised by the local sea cadets who would welcome any money in there collecting tins, this event has been going for many years and has never been cancelled, so I hope the harsh weather that is being experienced more north holds off . I spoke to the organiser a little earlier and he is very hopeful for the weekend.if i am allowed to give his phone no. for more details I will add it on a future post, at the moment the lawns are quite firm, so fingers crossed for a good weekend. p.s. I forgot to say that in the past there have been some American classic cars.

    Thanks for reading. yokeljohn.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Wrap up and enjoy.

    Anyone who loves classic cars can take a bit of weather. It doesn't look too bad.
