    Agree totally. Went to the Funsters tent and had a wonderfully welcome hot cup of tea. Many thanks

    Well said Rod and Mar, hope your not on the sweet stall with the bad weather. :cry: They do work very hard I wonder how many have made them tea / coffee and biscuits ? :)

    Hope your both well and have trained the dog, :LOL:
    I was thinking today ;) I suppose sometimes we miss the shows and meeting up with friends, :whistle: but I read these threads sat in the sun (23c) and can't believe we came back for it. :rofl:
    :D Bob and Janie.

    This year must be serious competition for the Great Peterborough Motorhome Show Flood of 2012?? It's rained heavily since midday here - I am with 20 WildAx vans at Leek, waiting for the heavy snow at 6am tomorrow!

    On behalf of the Marshalls, may I say. Big thank you to the Funsters who supplied with us hot, drinks, sweets and tots of brandy over the past two days. Your thoughts and generosity were much appreciated by us all.

    Yep - agree - marshalls have done a good job of trying to get the best parking spots for everyone and using the road where possible - very much appreciated.

    Great job by the Marshalls, especially finding some hardstandings!!
    You kind of know it's wet when a pair of ducks walk past your door, which they did at 7am this morning. Looking on the bright side however they were walking and not swimming!!

    Great job rally marshals, it's hard enough parking the motorhomes up in good weather, keeping the funsters happy, but in all the rain we have had is even harder, well done all of you

    I would also love to thank all the Marshalls but I havnt seen any? This maybe due to us arriving at the exit gate rather than the normal entrance lol, bloody sat nav. We are now parked in a great spot right opposite Jim and the main tent (Jim put us here)☺ @andyman when the rain stops feel free to pop over regarding the lights.

    But Sunday's forecast was quite good when I last looked, not the apocalyptic floods that you have just predicted....:rolleyes:

    I did think of calling it Peaterbog but wasn't sure if that was going tooooo far! :D

    We are now snuggled up in our toasty camper watching the hail fall! It can't make it's mind up whether to rain, hail, be dull or sunny, so we're getting all the seasons in one day! :rolleyes:
