January.2024.

Our early or slightly late, Christmas meal.

Took place at the Fighting Cocks Hale Common, on Wednesday January 17th at 7pm.

Our opening meet for the year will be the A G M Meet at The Old Barn over the weekend of 19th to 21st April 

Opening time from 3pm Friday 19th  to 3pm Sunday 21st April

Location  Old Barns Touring Park, Cheverton Farm, Apse Heath PO36 9PJ (what three words Wriggle – Ounce – Denham)

This is a full facility’s site and as the name suggests has a barn which we can use for the AGM itself, coffee mornings, and an evening get together,

The site is very well kept and has access to country walks, also in a short walking distance is Honnor and Jeffery’s garden centre, and its Bear café perhaps for breakfast or lunch, and a bit longer walk will take you to Morrison’s Super Market at Lake, Sandown Airport and if you want a big big breakfast on Saturday there’s also Richie’s Diner in Spithead Business Park just before Aldi’s.
The AGM is advertised to take place at 5.30pm Saturday 20 Apr 2024 in the Barn and when we have finished all the business we will then hold an American Supper in the barn, followed by a fun game or two. If you’re not used to American Suppers you just bring a plate of food each to share with others and anything you wish to drink.

The DA will provide Tea and Coffee for those who want it.

All are invited to attend the AGM and if you don’t want to camp you are more than welcome to attend the AGM and to stay for the Supper afterwards. Parking on site is available.

TO BE ABLE TO VOTE AT THE AGM YOU MUST HAVE YOUR CLUB MEMBERSIP CARD ON YOU AND IT MUST SHOW ISLE OF WIGHT D A ON IT.
The cost’s are £20.00 per night per unit, which includes electric hook up and free Wi-Fi
For those Members that would like to round off the weekend by having Sunday lunch at the Bear café, before heading home, the site has kindly allowed the normal departure time of 11.00 to be extended to 15.00.
For those Members wishing to attend this event, could you please book early, so that we can give the site an indication of numbers in order to reserve pitches.

Update -The 20 units that turned up for the AGM had a nice friendly bright but chilly weekend, The pitches managed to dry out and no problems occurred. The American Supper was well supplied and the AGM itself went without a hitch

Heath Farm, Staplers Road, Newport.PO30 2NB.

Join us at our new campsite near Newport but still in the middle of the countryside. We have 20 pitches available to us all with EHU. They are mainly hardstanding off a cinder track road around the wooded area it is set in.

Own sanitation is essential as there are no toilet facilities available as yet, but there is fresh water and elsan disposal available.

The cost is £27 pupn inc EHU but as a thank you for members who camped at the AGM meeting, the committee has decided to make the pitches for these people £20 pupn in EHU.

The site is dog friendly and there is a path through the grounds that leads to GG’s restaurant in the neighbouring Island Riding Centre grounds.
