For those that wanted to take part in the quiz sadly AC/DC who kindly organized this has had to return home so it won't be going ahead.

Some lovely photos on here (y) despite the weird weather - crazy having hot sun & brief hailstones all in one day yesterday! We were surrounded by bluebells yesterday in the Forest then a pony emerged followed by deer jumping right across the path in front of us - a magical moment for us but too quick to get a photo.

For those arriving today - Welcome! The field may be a bit quiet today if the weather is as predicted but sure to be lots of friendly chats as soon as it improves.

Still learning 😊
Some photos of the horses and their foals also the deer over the fence, I was surprised at how close they got.
So far have had a bike ride through the forest to Lyndhurst and the next day to Brockenhurst, both lovely places. The VW was for the bride and groom at the church in Brockenhurst.

From today until Sunday morning the hot food van in the Long Meadow Campsite is open for takeaway - they also have milk at £1 per pint, brownies, flapjacks & sausage rolls at £2.50 each but worth messaging them via their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/tastediningcompany/or calling on 07732350823 to make sure they have stock before walking down there & best to order hot food in advance too. The bread is part baked cooked to order at £1 per ciabatta roll or half baguette - no loaves at present. When we checked with one of the wardens at the Campsite they confirmed that they are happy for us to visit to pick up food & also to walk through on the public footpath into the Forest.
We will be having pizza again & tempted by fish & chips but it would be cold by the time we walk back as nowhere to eat it there. Might have to succumb to a cake or two having seen the photos above 🍰

Suggest contacting the Show organisers http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/contact.html - if any problems reaching them then let us know but better to arrange direct.

Hi, due to work commitments we're leaving later than expected today so won't be arriving until after 6pm.
I've called Apple Tree for their advise and arrivals up until 8pm today will be met by their staff and shown to the pitch, however, if you arrive after that the security gaurd will let you just inside the site and you'll be able to pitch up in the morning. Please have your booking confirmation to hand either paper or on your mobile and as the staff are now onsite at the exhibition, their contact number is 07442509630.
See you all soon! Guy and Teresa.

Just want to say thank you to all the funsters who came to our aid this morning when our electric problem escalated. Especially John don't know his forum name Wombles Alan and Lenny HB Lenny. Much appreciated. Don't know how we would have coped without you.

Bit of a long shot - but has anyone here got an USB-A (the new Apple connector for iPad Air& Pro) to USB cable I may borrow to charge my iPad, please.
Bit of oops to only bring cable for electric socket :rolleyes:

SORTED thanks

Arrived at last, found Wombles and said Hi, thanks for the welcome. Took an hour and a bit longer due to M3 being closed!

Corinium Duo not far from the entrance, JBX on the plate, please stop by and say Hi later (off for a stroll now).

Anyone go into the show today? Heard that not many exhibitors have turned up due to the weather. Was planning to come down tomorrow as staying at Verwood.

Thanks

It won't take you long to go round.

We weren't looking for anything and managed to elongate 30 mins out of it being nosey.

We went around in less than 10 minutes, I think the weather has really put a downer on it.

Sadly we are a 'no show' this weekend.
I've been looking forward to meeting a few people on here since booking back in September? However my wife watched the weather forecast on Wednesday night and said no way. Back to the 'rallies' section to see what else looks interesting 👍
