You may be wondering why you need to book? Simply to ensure we have space for everybody as some sites have limited capacity. It also helps us comply with any track n trace requirements. So when can you book?For a weekend or 5 day meet: 2 weeks before the start of the eventFor a Temporary Holiday Site (THS): 1 calendar month before:Bala = 9am 28th AprilLansdowne = 9am 30th JuneCemaes = 9am 6th July Why can’t I book sooner? Two reasons: We can’t be sure the event can go ahead till nearer the time; we want to give everybody a fair chance and avoid No shows/phantom bookings.So bookings for our 1st event at Eccleshall Castle will open at 9am Sunday 11th April as previously stated on the website. Plus I think Andy deserves a Saturday night off! How to book?Please remember Andy has taken on the bookings role in addition to Treasurer so please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state:Name, membership number, DA, contact number. Please confirm event and arrival date & number of nights.No prepayment necessary and like last year we will require correct cash in a clear sealed bag.
Last year we had to cancel meets due to Covid, we really don’t want to cancel this year, because we don’t have a steward. So if you’d like to camp for free, then why not steward a meet or THS. Regarding Lansdowne, we’re not expecting 1 steward to do the full 3 weeks. It works well if we can get pairs of stewards to do a week each so you get alternate days off.* Basically we’re open to any offers of help. *free camping is for 1 unit so this is split where 2 units share stewarding duties.

The Camping & Caravanning Club have said meets can resume after 12th April 2021 when restrictions on using “self contained holiday accomodation” are lifted. The rule of 6 will still apply outdoors until May 17th and we are waiting for further guidelines on how to run meets but we may have to run our events as BOOKED “pop up campsites”.
NOTE: Bookings do not open until 11th April – after our AGM

Due to the Club guidelines and the latest 3 tier restrictions, we will not be permitted to have any social elements at this event so will not be having the usual american supper and fireworks. As dissappointed as we all are, I’m sure you will understand that we have to operate within Club guidelines to ensure all our members are safe and insured.

Apologies but we’ve been notified by the landowner that the rally field is too wet to use. He has been able to accomodate 10 units on hardstanding but this reduction in capacity means this event is fully booked. We are starting a reserve list so please email email@example.com
HQ are cancelling all meets with a JUNE start date. This means our meet at Manor Farm will not be going ahead. The committee are hoping to rebook all cancelled meets for 2021 and will keep you informed accordingly. GOOD NEWS Bala is rebooked for next year!
