We managed not to lose the deposit by rebooking it for a week in mid June. Had to do this straight away so there was no opportunity to consult my son on his work pattern at that time.

Well, we've just got back from a long weekend away (4 nights), at the C&CC Chichester (Southbourne) site. We had a good weekend.


The site was about 85% full on Friday evening, 2/3rds MH/Campervans the remainder caravans. As the sanitation blocks are closed "own san ess" is required, I think this may be putting some folks off.

That surprises me - I'd expected everywhere to be rammed.

Me too Jean, certainly the last week of the school Easter hols that was the case.


There's certainly been a lot of MH activity on the roads so I was expecting the site to be fuller.



Speaking to a colleague who's a tenter, he's not bothered looking at anywhere until after the next round of Covid restrictions are lifted on the 17th May (which is when, I believe the major clubs will be opening up their toilet/shower blocks).

I can see why a tenter would want the toilet blocks to be open but it makes no sense, in my mind, to deny yourself a holiday when you've your own facilities on board.

We are just back from our second trip so far this year. We had 4 nights at Pembrey C+MC site where the facilities are closed. It hasn't been an issue to us really. Prior to the current situation I used to use on-site facilities, preferring to keep the on board ones for my wife to use. Also unless you have a fully serviced pitch, it meant more work for me filling up with water and emptying the grey. We had a fully service pitch at Pembrey so no worries there.

Oh, it also means emptying the toilet cassette daily as well as opposed to every other day, in normal times.

All we have done is adjust our daily routine really. The heating and water come on at 'early o'clock' on the timer so we have it piping hot by 8am. i then take first shower and brush my teeth etc. Mrs GMJ then gets up and has a coffee and breakfast by which time the water has heated up for her shower.

It hasn't thrown us out at all really. Prior to these 2 trips I had only used the shower once I think but I have been impressed thus far. We have a good sized cubicle plus the pressure is good and the water red hot.

We had a lovely trip away. the weather was foul on Monday when we left home to get to site and didn't relent all day. The next 3 days were cold but mainly rain free so we managed to get out on our ebikes all 3 days. As I had forgotten to pack the battery chargers I had to use mine in manual mode so as to save the battery for Mrs GMJ's use. Tbh it worked out fine as it is mostly flat in the country park and on the Millennium Coast path.

Anyway, our next trip away is next Friday. we are off to Cardiff for 3 nights and then Cirencester for 11.

Does anyone know when sites in France will open or are they already ? Obviously this is particularly aimed at those other members living in France....... but who knows, someone may have heard/read it somewhere..... I havenít...

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

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