  1. FYI if you have not received a letter from 10 Downing Street, below is a copy of what has been sent out.
  2. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is scheduled to address the nation at 8pm today on TV
  3. Admin comment: Please note that everybody here in the back room at CT is doing their best to keep the threads both positive and factual but when a member posts further negative news immediately after we have appealed for them not to we are obliged to remove that post. That member is now on our radar, along with some others, and we will remove the ability to use this forum from anybody who breaks the forum rules or is seen to be a negative influence.
  4. Admin comment: There will doubtless be opportunity later to argue what should not have been done, by who, and when. Discuss and debate by all means but for now let us all pull together and keep the threads positive until the current situation is resolved.
  5. Social distancing - UK Government's publication You should only leave your home if you really need to for one of these reasons: • Shopping for things you must have, like food or medicine. • For health appointments that cannot be done over the phone. • To go to work, but only if there is no way you can do your work from home. • To care for a vulnerable person. • To do exercise once a day, like going for a walk alone or with someone you live with.
  6. Before passing on information to your fellow members here on Caravan Talk, please ensure that you verify the source of the information, and if at all in doubt, please do not share it. Below is some advice from HM Government to help you identify false information.
  7. Admin comment: Keeping things in perspective. Caravan Talk forum is neither pro or anti religion, pro or anti evolution, pro or anti the environment. As an organisation we were simply set up to provide a platform for discussion of our joint hobby of caravanning and all that leads from that. Now that activity is something that none of us can take part in at present so we felt that as the forum is here, we should do our bit to give our members a place to discuss that which is uppermost in most of our minds at this time. We are trying to help rather than hinder peoples experience at this difficult time. We completely understand that none of us wants to be cooped up at home when we look out of our windows at the spring sunshine - but for the safety of the whole population we have to deny ourselves the privilege of venturing out just now. Our Admins and Mods have a difficult task, trying to maintain control of the forum with members holding many diverse views - but we are doing our best and our thanks go to the majority of members who respect this.
  8. It didn't take long for the doom-mongers to take over did it? Let's close this thread and try to start a positive thread again shall we? Admin

  10. Admin comment: Several posts have been removed from this thread. "Colourful language is another way of saying "bad language" or "swearing" and that is against he rules of this forum. Please refrain from using such language or linking to videos that do. Thank you.

    We have noted what has been posted so far, and the reason that animated images, emojis etc., are not permitted is to avoid distracting movement when trying to read a serious posting. We're inclined to leave those posted above in this photography section but would prefer them, or similar files, not to be posted elsewhere on the forum for the reason stated, unless there are clearly beneficial to explaining a reply. Static gifs (or other file formats) are of course perfectly acceptable as a means of enhancing a reply. Admin
  12. You are perfectly welcome to have a Union Flag (or any other national flag) as your Avatar if you wish, what is forbidden is an animated Avatar, whether it is a flag or not. As GPS says, our rules have not changed.
  13. Please be aware that we have noted your comment and this information will be amended when we next update the database. Kind regards, Admin
  14. Sadly there are a number of reports online regarding the current situation of Lunar Caravans Ltd., and there certainly appear to be problems. https://www.companyrescue.co.uk/guides-knowledge/news/lunar-caravans-limited-have-been-put-into-administration-4353 https://www.lep.co.uk/business/142-production-workers-laid-off-as-preston-company-lunar-caravans-enters-administration-1-9881326 https://www.blogpreston.co.uk/2019/07/lostock-hall-caravan-makers-lunar-go-into-administration https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/northwest/buyer-sought-for-caravan-manufacturer
