Spring Bank week is the busiest camping & caravanning week of the year and for the first year since I was a child I didn’t manage to get off anywhere due to my foot operation. Not being able to drive for a month is VERY frustrating!
I did manage though, to get to our THS at Ilkley for the last weekend which was stewarded by Sam & Pauline Wilson. The Bank Holiday weekend had been busy and they had managed to secure a room in the complex and put some entertainment on for our visitors, which was much appreciated with a number of e-mails being received from happy “customers.”
There will be a number of us missing from the Hipperholme meet as we are travelling to Rugby for James Haigh & Nikki Wardle’s wedding that weekend. Also on the same weekend, Leeds DA are holding their Bogie Race & YDA are at Knaresborough for the Bed Race! When sites are booked so far in advance it is difficult, nigh impossible, to gauge what competition there will be for a full attendance at our meets.
Where we will be represented well is at the forthcoming Region Meet which is being held at the new venue of Grange Park, Wetherby, just off the A1(M). Although our block booking has been submitted there is always room for anyone un-booked. The theme for the Mardi Gras parade this year is “Holiday Destinations” and we have chosen FRANCE as our entry. So get your berets, striped shirts and onions at the ready!! Christine has already bought some “props” including a number of Eiffel Towers!!
This will be the last edition of the Rams Head before we all set off, jet off or sail off on our well earned summer holidays so whenever & wherever you are planning to go I hope you all have a fantastic time and make sure you are back for our end of holiday meet at Pugneys in August ! (although Debbie and myself will be still on the Isle of Wight!)
