  1. From our local paper (in Hull where Swift are based) https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/couple-holiday-dangerous-caravan-recall-3859767#comments-section
  2. Might be a bit further from Arras but we stayed here last summer to visit the area https://www.france-voyage.com/campsites/campsite-albert-53656.htm. We had a great tour round the area and managed to visit all the memorials and places of interest. Was a good central base and able to walk into Albert for meals/shopping etc.
  3. and those who think I should move onto the muddy grass verge so their dog can walk on the path!!! we also drop to single file for other users but seems to be a thing of the past. I’m getting more where I won’t move though now that I’ve moved into my 50’s 😉
  4. I shop online at Morrisons so can't take advantage of the offer, however I have saved around £20 per week on my groceries . Did like Aldi, but our local stores are very poorly stocked unless you can get there first thing in the morning - no good for working folk.
  5. From our local newspaper- shame for those affected by redundancies https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/business/swift-caravan-redundancies-factory-closed-3714687
  6. Worst car Ford Escort 1.4 H reg, 2nd worst Morris Marina 1.3 V reg.
  7. I received a similar email a couple of months ago. I contacted them for a refund as unlikely to use it again anytime soon as using Hull-Zebrugge/Rotterdam these days. No problem for a refund, certainly no charge and deposited back into my account. However, I did have to chase for the refund; their explanation was that they were incredibly busy.
  8. We have the Wraith - both were similar price in the dealers shop so asked for their recommendation. They suggested the Wraith over the Nemesis (better security rating) so we bought and haven't been disappointed. Easy to fit, easy to store - no problems.
  9. If you book through CMC and add site night vouchers the cost ends up cheaper - don't know why but it does.
  10. We were flooded in 2007 and lost our caravan. CMC paid out with no problems whatsoever and the couple of times I've had to use them, Devitts have been excellent.
  11. We have this one - great value, picture, sound and good for 12v
  12. We had a pootle round The Lawns on Saturday, living in that place that no-one seems to like at the end of the M62 and north of the bridge to no-where! I will miss the show as I agree with Gordon about vans in the natural habitat. Over the last few years the focus has been more on holiday homes/statics/lodges rather than tourers. The accessory shop has always been rubbish, dominated by Leisureworld. Caravanwise - didn’t see anything which stood out for us in the tourers, although the quality of the Coachman upholstery is much superior than the Swift rubbish we have currently. Not sure we will go to Harrogate; the ticket price will increase, they will probably charge parking and the traffic will be terrible as the queues on a normal Saturday there are already bad. With regard to the university selling off The Lawns, they have invested in moden self-contained accommodation on campus as this what students want, rather than catered halls 3 miles away. Added to this, some of the buildings at The Lawns are listed so building new may be problematic, not to mention the University of Hull has serious money problems at the moment and the upkeep of such extensive grounds and property is crippling to their already stretched finances.
  13. We went a few years ago and stayed here http://www.camping-asnelles.com/. I would call it cheap and cheerful however the central location is good for visiting the beaches. We visited all the beaches from this site using it as a base. There are a couple a restaurants nearby in walking distance and also a supermarket and bakery for morning bread. We also ate out in Arromanche a few nights which has a bigger range of restaurants, but on the whole was happy with the site and the location. One of our best holidays in France.
  14. We also love the Woodhall Spa 1940’s weekend in July. The whole town takes part and although they have record numbers, it’s never crowded as it is so spaced out. We now prefer this one to Pickering (just no trains)!
  15. Have a great time - might see you there (amongst thousands of others!)
