Almost wall to wall sunshine and soaring temperatures for a great bank holiday meet. If you missed it this year, look out for it in the future.
This Aviation Museum has a unique collection of British aircraft from the “golden age” of British aircraft manufacture. From the end of WWII until the 1970’s British aircraft designers produced some of the most innovative and advanced aircraft of the day. From post war to cold war, this museum clearly shows that timeline in aviation terms.
Amongst the list are classic names, Avro, Hawker, Gloster, De Havilland, English Electric, Blackburn, Percival.
Due to a waterlogged field, our Maplehurst meet had to be cancelled unfortunately.
Come and join us in a quiet area of West Sussex in the midst of fields of Deer.
Two pubs near by. Walk to the White Horse or a short drive to the Black Horse. bus stop nearby in Maplehurst Road.
Our previous met at Orchard Farm coincided with a weekend where the weather turned out to be fantastic, 31 units on site and a few sun tans.
A Powertouch remote was found just outside the entrance to the site, so if its yours, please contact Martin at Orchard Farm who is looking after it for you!
After avoiding the potential cancellation of the meet due to the dependable British Weather, the Easter meet at Clapham and Patching Village Hall went ahead with a great deal of success, sticking just to the hard standing car park area. Fun and games were had with team building, easter bonnets and a quiz, communal Sunday lunch and of course our AGM where a buffet lunch was provided for all attendees.
Following on from the AGM, we now have a new chairperson, Celia, who has been promoted from vice-chair last year. We wish her well in her new roll and if you have any questions or queries feel free to contact her (look at the contacts page for more details).
Val has taken on the role of Vice-Chair as well as still being Site Secretary, so thank you to her for also taking on some additional work!
We also want to Thank our outgoing Chairman, Pat, for all his hard work and time committed to the DA over the last few years, and although he has stepped down as Chairman, he is still on your committee, so hasn’t managed to escape fully quite yet!
Our 2018 meets listing is now live! so get your diaries out and book out your weekends for cost effective camping, DA Style!
We have a few vacancies for Stewarding a meet! If you want to help out, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let Val know. If you have never Stewarded before, we can give you training or of you want to see what its all about, ask one of the stewards or committee on a meet and we will be more than happy to show you and give you a few pointers!
Our AGM will be during the first meet of the year at Easter to which all members of West Sussex DA are invited. This is your chance to meet the committee and put your views across, or if you want, potentially join the committee and help run your club!
More updates to follow, and here’s to looking forward to an enjoyable years camping with West Sussex DA in 2018!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help us celebrate Halloween at Muntham House School, Barns Green. Although this was only three days we had a great turn out, and nearly ran out of room!
Muntham House School looked fantastic on the autumnal sunshine, and it allowed us to sit outstayed and catch some rays while catching up with friends.
The Saturday Night party, hosted an American Supper with oodles of tasty treats, excellent costumes, spooky games, carved pumpkins and a bit of a boogie! From the comments on our Facebook page, everyone had a great time, and we (especially Julie who has been trying to get a Halloween meet together for some time!) want to say thank you to all of you who came along!
As this was the last of our meets this year, the Committee would also like to say thank you to everyone who has come away with us this year, weather it be virtually every meet or just one night. Keep an eye out for our end of year celebrations and next years camping dates to put in your diary!
