  1. Thanks so much for letting us know. It will certainly make life easier when we are away.
  2. I'm sure this could work just as well in Wales.
  3. We were in North Wales over the weekend and as expected the toilet block was closed. Now the toilets,showers etc on our caravan park are always spotless at the best of times and over the last 12 months they were cleaned even more. So, I would feel much safer using these toilets than the public toilets in Wales which hundreds of people use on a daily basis and are possibly not cleaned as often as the toilets on caravan parks. I find it incredible that there is Talk of overseas travel to some countries possibly being allowed soon yet caravan parks cannot open up their amenities .
  4. The prices of caravans seem to be going up literally overnight at the moment. I had been looking at prices at a large dealers of their new caravans that were in stock , the very next day the same Van's had gone up in price on average £400.
  5. Do you think it would be legal for him to travel in the footwell? I've tried to find out but with no luck.
  6. We used to have this beautiful mgf until a yob where we used to live vandalised it. Could I ask a question which could sound silly? If we were to buy another mg or Mazda convertible, would our little dog be allowed to travel in the passenger footwell ? I know that dogs have to be secured and ours has a crate in our car but in a 2 seater car that of course wouldn't be possible unless hubby left me at home. !
  7. I had my jab last week at our local sports centre. The whole process was run like clockwork in a friendly way . I'm happy to say that other than a sore arm for a day or so no side effects at all.
  8. As far as i have been informed by our park owners Andy, winterising our caravan is classed as necessary travel into Wales. We would only be going into the storage compound then straight home so will not pose any risk to anyone but it's going to be a nervy journey if we do go.
  9. We are hoping to travel to North Wales on Saturday to secure our caravan that is stored there. This is our 3rd attempt to go and we have checked with the caravan park owners if this is ok as we are in tier 3. We have been told that its ok to go as winterising a caravan is classed as necessary travel. We don't want to break any rules but really would like to sort our van out before the worst of the weather comes. Are we really ok to go? Still unsure.
  10. As I have become extremely optimistic regarding the coming vaccine and I live in hope of the beginning of the end of this pandemic I am wondering, how many of you are happy to have the vaccine? hubby and me are going to have the jab when offered and can only see this as a way of eventually getting rid of this virus. How about you ?
  11. Thank you Silversurf, when I rang our caravan park they couldn't give me a definite answer. You watch, as we are in the Greater Manchester area we will probably be put into the very high category and not allowed to travel. I cant keep up with it all but like to abide by the rules. Finger ( and everything else ) crossed that a vaccine becomes available sooner rather than later. Keep well.
  12. I have read what has been written thank you. I have just been in contact with the caravan park owner and they are not sure if we are allowed to travel into Wales after 6pm today even to winterise our van. They are going to see what they can find out, nothing is quite as clear as simple as you think Townie.
  13. After 6pm tonight we are not allowed into Wales at all so being able to winterise our van wjll not be possible. It would have been helpful if the site owners would have informed us that we could have made arrangements to go.
  14. Our van is on a seasonal pitch in North Wales and the area has been in lockdown since the beginning of October. If we had been told that we could have gone for the day to sort the van out for winter we would have. As it stands, we cant get there today and so now have to live in hope of getting there when we are again allowed into Wales. To have given people until Sunday night before we were shut out of Wales would have at least helped working folk, this year has made us realise that having your caravan a 2hr drive away is not good st all.
  15. The only hostility we found in North Wales was in March just before lockdown. Since returning to our caravan park in July we have kept ourselves to ourselves really but have not heard of any hostility. We only expect to have 2 more trips before our van gets taken off its seasonal pitch so time will tell if the locals resent us visiting.
  16. We will bring our leisure battery home when we close up our van as this winter we may not get the opportunity to use it. I'm not sure what the battery is but is there a charger that suits all types of leisure batteries and how often over the winter months should it be put on charge? Thank you.
  17. We have never seen North Wales as busy. Just back from our weekend away and everywhere resembled the August weeks.
  18. Hmmmmm, this is the gearbox that we have. Were always in 2 minds as to should we change the car to tow the Nova or should we tow a little Eriba with our Golf. I'm sure one day we will come to a decision! We find the older we get the more difficult making decisions becomes.
  19. On our vin plate the figures are 3335kg. 1900kg giving us the 1400 towing capacity that we expected. The but is what I read which mentioned that although the Golf is capable of towing its not recommended as it puts too much stain on the vehicle. Could well be VW being over cautious .
  20. Will do, we are under the impression that our Golf can tow up to 1,400 but strangely I read on a VW dealers website that no variations of Golfs are suitable for towing. I am hopeless at copy and paste kr I would put a link to the website. Www.compassvw.com
