Here are some of our memories of a wonderful meet.
Thank you all for making it so successful.
21st - 23rd April
Manor Farm Caravan Site
Manor Farm Kites Hardwick. 10 units arrived during Friday afternoon and early evening
on this lovely site. We awoke on Saturday to sun which just got nicer and hotter
as the day went on! We chatted, relaxed and BBQd. Perfect day! On Sunday we all got
together for coffee morning and chatted and made the most of the warm weather again.
We were entertained by the gorgeous black welsh lambs
who were running and playing in the fields.
I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend just as much as we did.

Avon Bank Meadow
28th April - 1st May
May Day Bank Holiday weekend
Although the weather was very mixed during the weekend it didn’t
seem to hamper everyone's enjoyment of this beautiful site.
There were lovely walks both into the village and a little further into Pershore.
An abundance of Farm Shops were in easy reach along with
Antique and Garden Centres, plus lots of shops for all tastes
both in the local town and a little further beyond in Evesham.
Below are a few snaps taken of the site and the surrounding area.
5th - 75th - 7th May
New Members …. And Old! Meet
Southam Rugby Club
What a fantastic weekend was enjoyed by all. Friday night we were mystified by the
brilliant Magician Paul Kybert, a ring magically disappeared and then re-appeared
in a sealed envelope, a £10 note vanished only to re-appear in a lemon!!!! A rabbit,
yes a real live rabbit popped up from a hat, water refused to pour out of an upturned
tumbler and bottles of wine vanished into thin air…….and so much more it would take
too long to describe, to say we were all impressed is an understatement. Saturday
afternoon we had fun and laughter in the Archery competition, all ages tried their
luck at hitting the target, some expertly, and some not so, but how good it was to
see everyone come together, competing with, yet supporting each other. We all got
together early evening and enjoyed a smashing hog roast together, which took us straight
into an evening where we were up on our feet dancing the night away to the fabulous
solo artist Derek James. He certainly wowed the crowd and kept everyone entertained
throughout the night.
Sunday morning we enjoyed a biscuit and cuppa, whilst the raffle was drawn, prizes
were awarded for the highest scores in Archery and the Bonus Ball winners were announced.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at this memorable meet,
we very much hope you to see you all real soon.
Last but not least, thank you to everyone who helped put up and take down the Party
Tents, put chairs out and then put them away!!! What ever you did, it was very much
appreciated by the committee.
New Members … and Old! meet
12th - 14th May
Greenhill Park, Bearley
Thank you to Andy and Jackie Flear for Stewarding the meet and organising a smashing
“Pudding Night”. It was a great success with innumerous puddings for everyone to
sample and tip those they felt deserved to win.
There were so many presented that seconds or maybe thirds were on offer during the
evening, and the remainders were finished at Coffee Morning!!!
Well done and a huge thank you to all who brought along their delights
and helped raise £32.10 for the
Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance.
19th - 21st May
The Blue Lias, Stockton
Thanks to Gary, Sue, Lucy and Jess for Stewarding this very popular meet.
It was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended. The weather was mixed
but on the whole dry and allowed everyone to get out and about
and enjoy this lovely setting.
Whit Week THS
26th May - 4th June
Merry Weather Farm
Hook Norton Road
First the stewards would like to thank all the members who attended this meet as
we met some lovely people from all over the country some staying for the duration
and some just passing through.
The site itself was excellent with a lovely flat field and exceptionally good facilities.
Thanks to site staff who were only too pleased to help us. Apart from the Bank Holiday
Monday the weather was glorious with sunshine every day. What was very nice to see
was the amount of children on the site who were very well behaved.
It was a pleasure to steward such a meet as this and we hope to see you all
May Day weekend 2018.

9th - 11th June

Yet another smashing weekend was enjoyed by all at this glorious site.

sitting enjoying this peaceful retreat.
Thank you all for joining us and we look forward to seeing you all real soon.

sat outside in the lovely weather and enjoyed a drink or two!!!!!!
Our thanks go to our first time stewards Becky &Dave Cole who ran the meet like old
hands, also thanks to the staff at Makins for making our stay with them so enjoyable

Central Counties Regional Meet
CDA’s Street Scene
Congratulations to Karen and Keith Powers for such a wonderful creation.
23rd - 25th June
The Paddocks, Stockton
Thank you Peter and Edith for Stewarding the weekend. We had yet again a good turn
out with 13 units on-site. There were only a few table top sales but thank you for
raising an additional £9 towards the Air Ambulance collection.
We all enjoyed a lovely weekend added to which Peter and Edith provided us
with jam and cream scones on Saturday afternoon, when we were able to chat
amongst old and new friends.
30th June - 2nd July
Well what can we say!!! ?
To begin with a HUGE thank you to Ann, Pam and Dave for being such amazing Stewards,
and for Christine and Glenn for stepping in to support them site the
104 units that attended this smashing meet.
We were delighted to see so many units arrive from all over the Country,
and to one unit all the way from New Zealand! I don’t for one minute think
they just came for CDA’s meet though!!!!
The weather was brilliant, with a cooling breeze just when you needed it.
Lots of people took a walk around the Boot Fair on Saturday morning in
the adjoining field. Then many walked, rode or drove into Stratford to shop,
watch the live Theatre Productions and walk around the River Festival.
Lots to do for everyone.
Please put it in your diaries for next year!
Happy Safe Camping and Caravanning.
Looking forward to seeing you all before then though we hope.
Stratford Riverside THS 2017
Below is a short snippet of my short stay at Stratford Riverside THS.
Thank you to Christine and Glenn for their tremendous hard work and dedication running
the meet. Unfortunately I could only help on site for a few days but I managed to
take a couple early morning strolls around the site and you can see from the photographs
what there is to offer!!! Including the resident heron who was un phased by humans!
It was great to see a family having some old fashioned fun with the more modern version
of bubble blowing.
