The NW England section are holding a camping weekend on 11th September – 13th September 2020 at the Turner Hall campsite, Seathwaite, Broughton in Furness, Cumbria, LA20 6EE. The prices are as follows; Adults £7, Tents £1, vehicles £1, Campervans £2.
OK that’s the easy bit done! As you are all aware, because of the present situation regarding Covid 19 there are some conditions attached to anyone thinking of having a camping weekend up in the Lake District. Firstly you will have to book in advance via phone, email or messenger and you have to give your name and contact details. Payment is preferred by BACS but they will take cash if necessary. They cannot take cards as there is no connections. If you have to cancel please give at least 48 hours notice otherwise they may not be able to sell your pitch and you will only get a partial refund of 80%. The number of pitches are limited and they need to be at least 6 metres apart. There will be no day visitors.
Please arrive after midday and pitch your tent and once you have settled in let them know you’ve arrived. They will then check your booking and give you a label to display. It’s a working farm so don’t worry if you can’t find them, they will be around the site somewhere. Remember, pitch your tent 6 metres away from other campers who are not in your group.

I understand that it seems to be a lot of phaffing about, however it is what it is and we are all stuck with it for the foreseeable future. However I am starting the process of getting my life back and this camping weekend is another way of doing it. Cheers Dave Gillespie
