I'll pop in to say hello and join you on whatever you plan but I'm planning to stay at Hardhurst Farm Campsite just up the road. Just thought I'd let you know.

All of our allocated pitches are sold out. But you should be able to book direct with the site on 01433-620215. Ask to go in Block A.

Dingo, it will be nice to see you. Most people will be arriving mid-afternoon. Also, note that I spoke to the site yesterday and it is completely sold out, so if you are thinking of staying you might have to wild camp at the station car park over the road!

Cheers for the reply Ian. I've spoken to the site, and they've squeezed me in on Z1 tent pitch with the van on Friday night. I've gotta send the wife to work on Sunday so can't stop Saturday.
We will be a bit basic but hey ho ,looking forward to the first night in the Bongo.
We won't arrive until around 7 because of school work etc. But only planning to turn up and get a take away. :D
Looking forward to it see y'all soon.

We're unlikely to make it on Friday so anyone who can make use of our pitch may as well. We should be there lunchtime Saturday.
