NEW TEMPORARY CAMPSITE
INAUGURAL VENUE



MONDAY 17TH MAY TO MONDAY 24TH MAY 2021 (incl.)

TOPSHAM RUGBY CLUB, EXETER ROAD, TOPSHAM, EXETER, DEVON. EX3 0LY




This is in order to give every Funster the chance to see this and discuss the event with their mates

Come the day of Booking please provide us with your First names and your Vehicle Reg. No.


We have great pleasure in inviting all subscribing Funsters to the inaugural Temporary Campsite, at Topsham Rugby Club, Topsham, nr Exeter.

As a result of the ongoing Pandemic, we haven’t a clue what we will or will not be allowed to do come the end of May but, in the hope that we will have returned to something like ‘Normal?’ these are the highlights of the area.

The Rugby Club have a Licensed Bar which we are hoping to use.
Bus Stop outside the door that will take you to Exeter, (and beyond) and in the other direction, Exmouth and even Sidmouth.
A Railway station, again taking you to Exeter (and beyond) and Exmouth.
An Aldi within walking distance, <(½ mile)

This is but a small selection of, ‘Things to do’

Topsham, we understand, has 5 pubs and several eateries. (Boris willing, will be open!)
Good walking country including a riverside walk to Exmouth.
Topsham Quay Antique Centre, (A large wharf warehouse crammed with antiques. As seen on TV)
River cruises
Darts Farm Shop, (There are Farm Shops, and then there is Darts Farm.) Look it up.
Exeter
Exmouth

Location; Topsham Rugby Club, Exeter Road, Topsham, Exeter, Devon, EX3 0LY
Co-ords ; N50.688829 W3.47077

The event starts at 12noon on Monday 17th May 2021 and finishes 12noon 24th May.

This is a seven night event. The cost of attending is £63 per unit.
Please note. We have been informed by the Club that they hope to have an as yet unknown number of EHU’s in time for this event. If so, the first Funsters registering their interest in attending will be offered this facility first. (at an extra charge) NB NEW. At present, (1st April) there is no provision for EHU for sited Vans'. There are however outside sockets at the Clubhouse.

Topsham is a very old, ‘quaint’ town sitting on the banks of the River Exe estuary.
(Don’t want to put anyone off but it was good enough? For Matt Hancock to base his ‘Staycation’ in the UK last year.)

Facilities; Topsham Rugby Club have a Club House which we have been told we can use.

Access; The Club has a gated entry which we will lock at night. (Pedestrian access still allowed)

Toads. There is a separate tarmac Car Park for these.

Dogs; Dogs will be allowed, although prohibited on the actual Rugby pitches. They can be exercised around the margins and should be kept on leads at all times.

Generators; Generators are allowed. If you intend to use them please advise us when booking. You will be sited separately and they can only be used in “Social Hours”

Deposit NB. BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT SITUATION, THERE IS NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED NOW.
HOWEVER, WE WILL REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT ON OR BEFORE 15TH APRIL
(BY THEN WE MAY HAVE MORE IDEA AS TO WHEN/IF THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE)

N.B. We appreciate that in a small number of cases there may be Funsters who have to cancel. The Final Payment will be repaid if that place is filled by someone on the Reserve List? Otherwise £10 will be forfeited and that money will go to Charity.


************************************************
On the assumption that COVID will still be impacting on the way in which we will be able to operate as a Temporary Campsite, we will be providing Bug Sterilising solution and appropriate signage at Fresh Water points and Elsan emptying points. We will also be siting you with regard to Safe Social Distancing. There will be no ‘Door to Door’ pitching of units.
Gazebo’s will be allowed but it is on the strict understanding that they should not be used for socialising by persons from different units. In addition, there should be no socialising in one and others units.
We will require your details for ‘Track and Trace’ before arrival at the site. Your cooperation on all these matters will be appreciated.

We have no idea as to whether there are events taking place at Topsham but we will be bringing the Cornish Skittles and no doubt there will be other 'stuff' taking place for the enjoyment of all.
We will be bringing our collection of Good, Clean, (Condition, if not content) Paperbacks which will be on sale in Aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
We will be having a Charity Raffle, again for the benefit of Prostate Cancer UK

PLEASE NOTE

THIRD PARTY BOOKINGS
I will not be accepting bookings from 'Third Parties' on this event. If you wish to attend with a mate, you will both, (or more) have to book in your own name.

Regards

Derek and Mary AKA Emmit

Oh ok. False start!!!!!!!

So far??? You're the first. It happens every time. Don't worry. We don't keep count.

I just wanted to stop others making fools of themselves by not reading every word of the invite🤥

Count us in please - with EHU if available.
Welcome to the club Kev and Ju 😩😱😂 My fault. I messaged you before I realised we have to line up next Sun night on the starting line ready for the starting pistol.

I sent them a 'Conversation' because they are relative newbies.

If I knew it was you who had stitched them up I'd have posted on here. :rofl:

Thing is, even doing it this way, we filled Pershore last year in 2 hrs. Got to be fair to everyone.

What a shame it clashes with Toledo's Bring & Buy in Lincs. :doh:
We have our names down for the B+B as we have a shed full of junk useful motorhome paraphernalia to clear out there.
