Hi y'all,
I've been, (and still am) busy converting an ex parcel force van
into a motorhome so have not visited the forum for a while, but just
a little reminder about Stratford.

ShakesPeare Birthday Celebration Weekend Get together.

The dates for 2008 are;
Friday 25th April to Monday 28th April

Venue (as in 2006 and 2007) is;
Riverside Caravan Park,
Tiddington Road,
Stratford Upon Avon
Warwickshire
CV37 7AB

Price per night; 7

This get together is essentially a chance for Internet M/h forum
users to meet up with each other.
If you have motorhoming friends, or tugging family members that
would like to attend please let me know. Tents and trailer tents are
allowed on the rally field.

For those that have not been before, Riverside Park is situated on
the banks of the River Avon, only one mile from Stratford Town
Centre, and adjacent to the village of Tiddington.
Facilities include;
Shop & Cafe.
Adjacent Clubhouse and Children's Playground.
Footbridge spanning the River Avon. Free Fishing.
Moorings & Slipway. Pets Welcome
New Modern Clean Toilet & Shower facilities.
Resident Manager & Wardens.
Laundrette & Washing-Up facilities
Riverside & Counrtyside Walks
The rally field does not have hook up facilities.
Unfortunately, due to this years floods, the river taxi's received
considerable damage and it is unlikely they will be running next
year.

No deposit required. Overnight fees collected by me on arrival.
Please email me with your name(s), member of which forum, expected
duration of stay;

Voxy's email address is: laizin5@ntlworld.com

This is the WildCamping forum, the Meet up at Stratford is a joint one for several on-line groups.

Should be a friendly relaxing weekend, haven't decided if we're going yet.

seen voxy this afternoon, he is busy working on his conversion so not spending much time on line at the moment. no need to book as rally field is big enough to accommodate plenty of vans, 23 potential ralliers so far

Hi everyone,

A rally/get together is only as good as the people attending.
Thank you to you all for attending, brilliant bunch. Had a great time.
When I paid the pennies on monday I appologised for the late night (early morning???) noise, but the manageress said she'd had no complaints.
She also said she might not be holding rallies next year, but if she does, I'll book it again.

Voxy.
