  1. At the end of the day, the people that are initially put at risk of dying from their being stupidly selfish are; themselves, their friends and their families. Assuming that some of them survive, hopefully they will be able to live with the consequences of their actions.
  2. Back in 1992, a family of two adults and two mid-teen aged boys turned up and unpacked their tent, opposite us. The boys & mum stood around watching dad try to figure out how the poles went (there were only 3) he eventually managed it and then it came to pegging out - only 4 tent pegs! I had plenty of spares, so offered him the use of them, which he accepted. I asked if they had another tent, as the one erected was only a 3 man tent, with a tunnel entrance which would be OK for 2 people - he said "No, we'll all fit inside this one" and then it started to rain everso hard, so they all tried to get into the tent, well they almost got 4 of them in there, but one of the boys was getting wet legs! After about ten minutes, they all came out and got in the car. Dad wound down his window, thanked me for the loan of the pegs and that I could keep the tent as they had had enough & off they drove, never to return. As tents go, it was big enough for two and my grandson uses it still!
  3. From Google translate - What Miroslav says is : i have another problem i installed truma combi 6e on my front panel only show clock and key and nothing else and green light is flashing on the back
  4. Mine goes into a cleaning mode if long enough journeys are not made. I thought the car was on fire when it first happened, the burning smell was intense!
  5. My son-in-law had not heard of this, until he got home from doing deliveries from his restaurant. He said to our daughter: " I pulled up outside a block of flats to do a delivery, and as I got out of the car, everyone in the flats started clapping and cheering. I waved and it got louder. How nice to be appreciated. They were still clapping and cheering as I drove away! It took her a while to tell him what was going on, as she was laughing and crying so much! He knows now!
  6. If you are out on an un-neccesary journey, towing a caravan, you'll stand out like a sore thumb to police and surveilance cameras. A suitably large fine will be winging its way to all offenders.
  7. Six ambulances have holes drilled in their tyres! Stupid is, as stupid does.
  8. Just seen this on Facebook. Coronavirus (COVID-19) UKCS (last updated 22/03/20 at 11:00) Closure of all UK Caravan and Motorhome Club Sites To help ensure Government advice on social distancing is followed, the Club will be closing its UK sites network today - Sunday 22 March 2020. This will include the Certificated Locations network. We are in the process of advising all CLs to this effect. All UK sites will remain closed until 30 June 2020. The safety and wellbeing of our members, local communities, guests and staff is of paramount importance to us and we feel this move supports the recommendations issued by the Government. If you are currently on one of our sites, please contact the site staff who will advise you on how and when you need to leave the site. Please ensure you maintain social distancing at all times, in line with Government guidelines. If you have an imminent booking please do not travel to site. We will issue updates on a regular basis so please check our website. We will be in contact with members who have imminent bookings. We thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times. Stay safe and well. 𝗔𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗨𝗞 𝗖𝗹𝘂𝗯 𝗦𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝗰𝗹𝗼𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗲𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁, 𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗹 𝗳𝘂𝗿𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗲. Throughout these unprecedented times, the Club has endeavoured to follow the advice of the government. Initially, our priority was to support our members overseas – as the situation evolved and came closer to home, we introduced fully flexible bookings on UK sites and remained open to those members who made the decision to stay. We changed our operations to facilitate social distancing, closed facility blocks and communal areas, introduced mobile check-ins and increased distances between pitches and we asked members to visit sites closest to home. Keeping you and your family safe and well is, and always will be, our first priority. Given the continued escalation of the virus, the thoughts of our members and the messages from local tourist boards, it is clear the time has now come to close all our sites with immediate effect. Clearly, this decision will have a great impact on the hundreds of staff who have shown such remarkable dedication to the Club in extremely testing times. We will be supporting them in every way we can through the weeks and months ahead, until they can get back to doing what they do best – giving you the best possible experience at our sites up and down the country. What happens now? We've been dedicated to our members’ needs for over 100 years and want to be here for generations to come. As a Club, we need you more than ever, to support us and each other. Our website will be updated regularly with further information and we’ll be in regular contact throughout our closure period. We’ll bring you news, content and suggestions for how we can all share our passion for camping and lift our collective spirits. Most of all, we are greatly looking forward to the day that we can invite you safely back to our sites and enjoy time with family and friends in the beauty of our countryside. Until then, the NHS website is the best source of information about coronavirus and what you can do to prevent its spread. Please stay updated. Thank you, stay safe and my best wishes to you all.

  9. Don't forget that C&CC members get 10% off in Go Outdoors. Also if you find something cheaper elsewhere, Go Outdoors will match it, then take 10% off that price.
  10. They will be selling it all on ebay. We have enough home made meals in the freezer and other stuff, meat, bread , butter & pizza to normally last us about 3 weeks and as we both need to loose 3 stone in weight, we could eek that out to six weeks or more, and then have clothes that fit us again! Milk might be a problem, but we will engage the children to go forrage for us if we get desperate. They all phone / facetime every day, to see how we are, which is mostly OK, and ask if we need anything. OH has had a cough for 6 days, no fever / raised temperature, no breathing difficulties, so pretty sure it isn't anything untoward. She's still doing her daily excercises, so keeping fit -ish. I have no symptoms of anything new or nasty. We'll carry on self isolating, I'll keep on going to work, as I work alone, but I'll be keeping out of the shops.
  11. If you have the water in an Aquaroll type container with an external pump, put the pump into the full Aquaroll before pluging it into the caravan water inlet socket. If you do it the other way round, you can get an air lock in it and the pump just whirrs away but not pumping water.
  12. I think you'll find that the use of the Royal Crown in a logo, is restricted to Royal, Government and MOD use. It was when I worked within those domains
