We have another meet at Hayfield on their last weekend open for this year.
It is Friday 31st October to Sunday 2nd November:cool:
We may be able to use the site managers (Kevin & Joan)) BBQ.
Only arranged yesterday, and already Tresrikay, Lenny, Ladytramp & Grath are attending.
The more the merrier:cool:
Please Note:)
When I was talking to Kevin (The Site Manager) he mentioned that we may all be able to use his BBQ, however may I suggest that anybody that will want to use it should mention this to him at the time of booking and obviously take your own food.
I got the impression that it may turn out to be a kind of closing for the season party.
Please note that this was offered by Kevin (The site manager and not his assistant (who probably may be unaware of this offer)
Looking forward to meeting old and new friends at this meet:cool::cool:

The only special rate I get is because I am always on my own, However might get Talking tent interseted in this one. Providing his Mrs is agreable.

Telstar
03-09-2008, 18:59
I only mentioned rates because if we booked onto a commercial site (inc C&CC) there are rally rates, although these won't be as cheap as single person. I'm on such rates next week at C&CC Windermere site! For example this June before the little darlings broke up from school I stayed on a certain site in Dorset for about 10/night inc electric (which you don't use much of in summer). The site had a bar and pool and we were informed that the same site charges upto 35/night in the height of summer. Last month I stayed on a CL/CS's rally field (yes I know about the insurance issues) 6/night including electric near Derby/M1.

As a side note, once you've booked in on a site has anybody heard of any site checking occupancy or the number of dogs? I could kick the wife out in Hayfield villiage in future and get her to walk to the site. She'd get fitter and I'd save a few bob for spending in the local pub. Winners all round.

You can't do that to Kevin and Joan, they are a lovely couple and really go out of their way to accomodate. AND to save 5.20 and you being a merchant banker:(:(:(:D . We must ask though this next meet so that we can maybe get a few meets forward planned for next year;):)

Kevin, the Manager at Hayfield is going to put up some sort of cover between his M/H and his caravan, so if it is wet, we should be ok.

We have another meet at Hayfield on their last weekend open for this year.
It is Friday 31st October to Sunday 2nd November:cool:
We may be able to use the site managers (Kevin & Joan)) BBQ.
Only arranged yesterday, and already Tresrikay, Lenny, Ladytramp & Grath are attending.
The more the merrier:cool:
Please Note:)
When I was talking to Kevin (The Site Manager) he mentioned that we may all be able to use his BBQ, however may I suggest that anybody that will want to use it should mention this to him at the time of booking and obviously take your own food.
I got the impression that it may turn out to be a kind of closing for the season party.
Please note that this was offered by Kevin (The site manager and not his assistant (who probably may be unaware of this offer)
Looking forward to meeting old and new friends at this meet:cool::cool:

Just a reminder to old and new members

Spent a lovely last weekend at Hayfield, On Sunday I ate my Kipper outside in blazing sunshine 22c and got in a couple of walks as well. Had a nice drink with kev and Joan on Saturday night and they said we had 8 firm bookings for pitch 26. for the last weekend:eek:

Being the kind hearted, benevolent, thoughtfull and modest chap I am I have said " give that pitch to he or her most needy" :rolleyes: "and put me wherever you can squeeze me in, as my comrades deserve only the best":confused:

So come on folks lets see how many vans will fit on pitch 26...... p.s. The auction for the land is at Man uniteds ground on Thursday 16th:mad::mad::mad:

The club is bidding.

Just heard from Joan that the land adjascent to pitches behind the gate ( 26 )has been purchased by the club, this has been because of a sustained level of pressure by Kevin and Joan. I am thinking maybe we could get them a bottle of wine some choccies and flowers at the closing meet. What say you that are comming.
They are passionate about this beautifull site and hope to be the managers for many years.
I am going to have to book every other weekend next year..... thats what they told me.

Hi,
We can't guarantee attending this meet as extremely busy at work:eek:
This weekend we were booked at Chatsworth House, but had to cancel due to work problems.
Still in these times, it is better to be busy than have no work at all.
Where I work, we are most certainly bucking this recession trend:cool:

9 or 10 vans so far and lots of really nice people, including the site wardens (kev and Joan), so come on, have a think about it:rolleyes: and lets make this one a meet to remember:cool:

Just realised that Friday at this meet is Halloween night, :eek:
Are any members using any forms of alternative transport to arrive....... Do we need to keep one eye focused skyward for any hastily adapted items of cleaning appliances, of the manual catagory............ :eek:
Is Polly going to wear a long pointy hat........:D
Is jack going to turn into the hound of the Baskerville at midnight:confused:
And most importantly is FLASHINGBLADE:eek::eek::eek: gulp, leaving them at home.;)

See you all this weekend
I am arriviving Thursday due to needing chill out time
stress relief the radio and a book and a full glass.
my dad has been in hospital since september (end) and he is due out this week
I have passed on the caring duties to my brother and sister from Thursday so I am escaping. Is that the violins playing for my sob story or is it because I have no internet.:confused::confused:

So when you all arrive I should be chilled out enough to enjoy all your company.

hi all. i haven't booked for weekend. we have a haloween party on friday eve and i'm still trying to convince kim that the van is useable, even though it doesn't look inviting yet. attrition is how the children get their own way so i will give it a go. if i don't succeed, i will surely come down and visit you all. it's been ages since we last hooked up.

Telstar
28-10-2008, 19:28
Looking forward to this gathering. Meat needs defrosting for the BBQ, drink already in the van. Having my omnistore awning relocated on Friday AM to allow for a safari room to fit (may test it this weekend, weather permitting). it need moving forward and a spacer of approx 12mm installing. The dealership was on about putting wooden spacers in, bugger that, I am taking him plastic blocks of the right size. If I was brave enough I'd do it myself. Last time I was there I was giving him advice, unfortunately I don't have much choice in places to go locally, so I'll be watching them like a hawk to make sure he does a proper job.

Just got my CCC 'your place in the country 2009' yesterday. In it was a form for advance bookings, it was between pages 64 and 65. Page65 is HAYFIELD, spooky or what! I did notice that they have again put the prices up for next year which makes wilding even more attractive. I note that they are now allowing motorhomes and caravans (sorry for using that word) on Crowden, which is only 12 miles away, so I might give that one a go sometime. What is immediately obvious is the lack of these club sites that are open after this weekend. They are virtually forcing us to wildcamp.

ps I've signed the No10 petition, for what good these seem to do. As anyone heard of anybody at No.10 every taking notice/implementing any of these petitions?

Well even if you can only get up for Saturday night, it would be worth it. I know how much you want to come and they can't work you every day as thats breaking the law and negating their duty of care, as an employee you do have rights.

Kath said the same to me but I never ever take my van out for 1 night, (only ever did it once and that was the first time we ever had a m/h) too much effort cleaning and filling with water and draining and everything else for just one night:eek:
I motorhome for relaxation and enjoyment and not to be rushed and worn out and not relaxed.
But thanks, I do know what you mean, probably the difference is that I drive all week long and I like to have a bit of a wind down:cool::D

A very big thank you again and again:cool: and again for all the wine that you supplied and again for Kevins GREAT BBQ. A real party atmosphere, in fact a real party:cool:
Thank you to everybody that attended, I think that all had a good time and I really do hope so. The weather was not too bad considering the forecast and the makeshift BBQ room that Kevin made just did the job very well.
8 Wildcamping vans plus 3 regulars at the campsite that joined us in the fun:)
At least 6 people were missing from the photo call as on walkabout's
Not too many hangovers, I hope;) and I do hope that everybody had a safe journey home.

Sorry, no pics to add as Dimbo Rick forgot to take a camera. I endorse all the comments that have appeared here what a great weekend, I only got back a few hours ago.
I was the last van (or anything) left on the site. I went for a great walk this morning as Kevin and Joan were busy putting the site to bed. Our party Gazebo has been put in a safe place waiting for another party.
Kevin and Joan expects us all and more, to be at the opening weekend 3/4/5 April 09, when a party of spectacular magnitude is planned, so get booking folks, I will open a thread to this effect soon. Kevin and Joan are going to join the site as she thinks we are a great bunch:confused:;):p So look out for a new name on the site.
It was so sad to see the site totally empty as I drove away, it has become a very important place for me and the hills and the village my second home, I realise I am very lucky having such a great place to stay just 40 minutes away from home. However this year has been the best yet as I have been able to intoduce some of you to share this little Oasis and to finish the season in such style, with such company will keep me smiling through the dark days til April. I will not be staying away though just Wildcamping on Kinder road.
Thanks again to you all.......;):)

I was in our local aquarist shop, this morning, when a 70+yr old :rolleyes: came over to me (blue jacket, flashing blade in the red) and said, "Can I have a motorbike for Christmas?" :eek: :eek: Quick as a flash I replied "No! :cool: Your mother rang me last week and said that you weren't safe to have one!" :D :D I felt awful after, as he walked away looking really miffed! :D :D JIM!!
