  1. Not been my experience. They seem to be allowed to get damaged before being closed off. An example that I do recall that made me laugh out loud was at Shawsmead site near Aberaeron. It had rained for many days. The warden asked me to use a grass area. I said that there was no way as I knew how bad that area would be. If the site was not suitable I would far rather be cancelled. I would find an alternative. The warden relented. Unusually, as it was raining heavily I used the car to pitch the caravan. It was a tight turn and the car's front wheel rolled 18'' into the grass area and left a 9'' deep trench. I reported the accident when giving in my pitch number. The warden tested the grass are with is heel at a number of points and then removed all pegs.
  2. Hardly for my benefit Steve! I have no desire to be compelled to use a muddy grass pitch in wet weather.
  3. I believe that they now hand people a length of drain pipe to pop over their selected pitch. Trewethett does that also. It would be nice to know that this was in operation before arrival though as on occasion my walking is poor after being sat in the car and driving for a couple of hours.
  4. It was trialled on three sites - One was the Battle site, one was Sutton on Sea. Cannot recall the third one
  5. As Staffordshire china said. At least you are now aware that hard standings cannot be booked
  6. There has never been the ability to book a hard standing on any cc site during my nearly 40 years of membership except on 3 sites where they trialed giving the ability to book grass or hard for one year only. Whether hard standing is available is purely first come first served generally.
  7. Not really as I said that you would get more than £5k
  8. I can't say that heatings in an awning bothers me usually - it depends on their usage smf whether the awnings are occupied at the time.
  9. On many commercial sites the fee per night is the same for a solo as for a couple. I think that the CMC is fair
  10. Alde should work fine without water connected.
  11. My reading says that it is to keep the control panel and switches cool.
  12. Poor paint performance over damaged pre-finished panels is by no means uncommon
  13. I suspect that on all CMC sites you can park nose in or nose out. Sandringham site used to be the exception but I believe that is no longer the case
  14. I have also gone elsewhere but still rate the clubs product.
  15. I would not have thought that 'their insurance services are part-way down the pan'.
  16. so are non-members One can only surmise that those who are members see a benefit to them even if not everything provides them with a benefit.
  17. Personally I would not consider using a circular saw in such a confined space to cut the ply. I would use a Stanley knife or similar and repeatedly score to cut through. More tedious but one kickback with a circular saw in a confined space could, in my view, be catastrophic. Just my thoughts
  18. I have not used Direct line for 15 years. I was with them for many years and they were, then, excellent. Times change.
  19. In my case I use a mixture of sites but my first preference is for CMC sites as they offer what I want and at a standard that I like. I have absolutely no desire for 'added value services', whatever they might be.
  20. That is your choice. Join without direct debit and it is £52 subscription plus joining fee of £10 Join by direct debit and it is £52 subscription. Nothing to stop you cancelling the direct debit as soon as first payment is taken As I said earlier W&M: I am not sure what you wish from a site. The CMC concept of a basic site is one followed by many commercial sites and seems to be a popular concept for many.
  21. what we take depends on whether we are touring - which is usually the case - or having our one site December/Christmas break. If we are touring I will take cheese, butter, bread, milk, some batches/baps, bacon, a couple of meats, some sliced meat, some made meal bases in freezer compartment, crackers, french toast, pickles and jams etc, small bottle of olive oil, tea, coffee. On our December break just what is in the fridge and tea and coffee along with the olive oil. When we arrive on site we will set up, put the heating on and pop to Morrisons for a lunch and to shop. We always carry some tins of stuff.
  22. I can see no reason why he would not be able to single you out.
