I hope you and your families are keeping well during this time and are looking forward to getting out camping very soon...
Be rest assured that if the Government and Camping & Caravanning Club give the go ahead to resume camping, we will do so ASAP and put in place any safety measures required by the Government and the Club green papers.
As you may be aware we received an email from the club advising that all meets and THS’ with a start date in July have now been cancelled. We are looking at alternative THS dates and sites in the hope that we may be able to camp in August.
They also made the decision that the new “club festival 2021” will not launch next year.
They have stated that they are hopeful that club sites may start opening from July subject to government guidelines and it being safe to do so.
We will continue to share updates as we receive them.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Liz Stringfellow, our friend and Da President, passed away on the morning of Tuesday 2nd June 2020.
Over the years Liz has been a huge part of the Notts DA committee, including catering officer, chairman, and president and of course currently Regional Secretary.
Liz will always be known for her honesty, forthrightness and sincerity, and commitment to her work and her family!
I am sure many of you will have so many wonderful memories with Liz, camping / caravanning, holidays and family events - she will be sadly missed.
Our heartfelt condolences go to her husband Roger, daughter Michelle and son Michael as well as her grandchildren and the rest of her family.
