August Bank Holiday

Camping for this weekend is at
Dyke Farm, West Chiltington Road, Pulborough.
RH20 2EE.
Opens 10am Thursday 27th until Tuesday 1st September
Stewards are Ian & Gillian

Another very special little site of ours, with an onsite Farm Shop selling fresh Fish & Fresh Produce.

Also within the site there is fishing available on the Lake. Excellent fishing As was proved on our last visit.

However, since the owner Ken passed away, it has been increasingly difficult for Sandra to maintain and upkeep the lake to the standards it always used to be!!
So we are looking for volunteers to help with some conservation work doing a little weeding and clearing of the lake during the weekend as a thank you for allowing us the continued use.
Has anybody got any Waders that we might be able to use please.

It is our Feast of Lanterns Meet where we encourage everyone to light up their units with led lights etc, and for the more adventurous there is also a theme to follow which this year which is, ‘Famous Landmarks’.
The categories for your exhibit can be in the Window, in the Awning, or as a Youth entry.
Hot dogs & soup will be served for the FOL.
There will also be a Walk, Quiz’s, Boules, Fishing.

The Nutbourne Vineyards are within walking distance along with the Pulborough Brooks Birds Sanctuary which may be of interest.

Charity Day supporting Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice.

 

Lancing Bake off

This Saturday at Lancing THS we are having a Charity Day supporting Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice.
During the morning we have the Great Lancing Bake Off Competition, baking cakes within your units ready for judging after lunch.
During the afternoon the cakes will be sliced up and sold with a cup of tea. Along with a Raffle & Auction all proceeds collected will go to the Charity!
The evening entertainment for the second week running will have live music. This week a fantastically talented live Band.

So I hope some of you will be there to support us.
And don’t forget if you are a West Sussex Member camping for the first time with us we will treat you to your second night for Free!!
