All C&MC sites now closed

Just had an email from C&MC. And apparently the other club has also shut all their sites till further notice.

To help ensure Government advice on social distancing is followed the Club will be closing its UK sites network today - Sunday 22 March 2020.

This will include the Certificated Locations network. We are in the process of advising all CLs to this effect.

All UK sites and CLs will remain closed until 30 June 2020.

The safety and wellbeing of our members, local communities, guests and staff is of paramount importance to us and we feel this move supports the recommendations issued by the Government.

If you are currently on one our sites, please contact the site staff who will advise you on how and when you need to leave the site. Please ensure you maintain social distancing at all times, in line with Government guidelines.

If you have an imminent booking please do not travel to site. We will issue updates on a regular basis so please check our website We will be in contact with members who have imminent bookings.

We thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times.
Stay safe and well.

Keeping them open encouraged the idea that for some people it was OK to holiday - which is the perception of caravans and motorhome.

Such activities should NOT be condoned or encouraged, people should not be going to their second homes because they believe them to be more isolated - that isolation means that support services such as the NHS are also more isolated and perhaps less well equipped for increased numbers.

Sadly, some people may well be full timing and have had the space literally pulled from under their feet. That could well cause them major problems as it could never have been foreseen when they decided to go fulltiming, perhaps with no home base any longer to return to (which must be one of the key factors in full timing in order to reduce the expense of a house that is rarely used).

Not an easy position to be in but IMO, the various Clubs have done the right thing.

Like everyone, I hope that things will be able to return to normal, but I suspect it will be many months before that can happen. By that time, the population could well have changed its structure with far fewer people of retirement age able to undertake fulltiming.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
