HATTON COUNTRY WORLD, May 23 rd to 28 th 2024

Image
 Arrived on Thursday to be greeted by marshals J & J and KS to find that on their arrival at Hatton Country World they had been told the rally field was unfortunately so wet that it was not useable. The site offered a small grass area and the bus parking car park as an alternative. The marshals were not fazed and set plan B in action. JW was also marshalling, but due to work couldn’t arrive until later in the day, escaping the issues they had encountered.We did manage to get stuck, with our 4x4 off roader and once we had been rescued by J we were soon pitched. The rally was a mixture of sunshine and showers, but we managed to sit out and socialise every day. The location was lovely and only a short walk from the Hatton Locks on the Grand Union Canal, where there are 21 locks which bring the canal up from Warwick to Hatton. It was a nice 2 mile walk along the canal into Warwick, where we enjoyed a well-earned pint. Hatton Country World hosts a garden centre and a shopping village wh

Fortway Farm Leisure & Fishery, May 2024

  Marshall’s S & PR. A fantastic site with clean facilities and a well-stocked fishing lake. Calor gas bottles for exchange on site too at a good price. The weather was gorgeous so the fishing was very enjoyable hence we fished for 12 hours on the Saturday Unfortunately due to this we weren’t very sociable in the group. But everyone seemed to be having a great time doing what they wanted. It was a very friendly group with lots of laughs and warm welcomes. We didn’t venture off site at all. But others did and explored the nearby attractions and walks. S & PR were very helpful and friendly as always. Gained more fishing tips off PR Looking forward to going again next year and hope we can make it a regular event as it’s a lovely well-maintained site. D & DS

Lees Meadow Farm, May Day Weekend 2024

Image
May Day weekend was spent at Lees Meadow’s and the campsite is a beautiful site and the views are amazing. Arrived Friday afternoon and it was raining but it didn’t bother me as I had to do some work while waiting for my other half to come from work. Friday night for us a chill night just watching the world go by. Saturday, we woke to better weather, it was nice summers day. Had a drive out to Rowsley peak outlet. Saturday afternoon was very eventful with one of the highland cows climbing over the wall. It was entertaining waiting for the farmer to turn up and wondering how to get him back in the field. But he did it. Sunday, we woke to another beautiful day, it was nice as we just sat around chilling and chatting until CS came back from her walk with her dog and had us in stitches about the cow (Dolly) that chased her through the field. We haven’t laughed so much over the story lol. Monday came and it was yet another beautiful day but home time. MM This is Dolly after her bath.

VALENTINES RALLY, COPT OAK MEMORIAL HALL, FEBRUARY 15th to 18th 2024.

                                            A lovely rally run by S & J P plus lots of helpers. The Hall was beautifully decorated and the food was lovely, followed by fun and games and music, What more could you ask for? Many thanks for all the hard work that goes into running a rally like this. As fairly new members of the 4c's Caravan Club we would like to say how welcome we have been made to feel by this friendly caring club. Thank you. S & TW

Burns Rally Report January 2024

Well what can I say, what a great weekend. We stayed at the site in Copt Oak which also benefited from having a hall to get together in which was a bonus. First time out this year and it definitely started off as well as it could have. We arrived Friday and were greeted by GB who was marshalling and instructed us where to park. Was initially concerned as being in a Motorhome obviously I would have preferred hard standing but there was plenty available so there wasn’t any need to worry. Finally got settled in after realising I had forgot my water barrel and had to go to the tap and fill up which was not a problem as there was plenty of room to manoeuvre. Friday night we headed over to the hall where we had some games off bingo with a very peculiar caller who seemingly had his own definition of calling. This included mentioning a colour that was required and reading them out as fast as possible and of course it was already harder due to his Scottish accent, let you guess who.  Great nigh

Moira Furnace, Easter

Easter Rally 2022. Arrived on Thursday in brilliant sunshine which stayed with us all weekend. Obviously ordered by the Marshalls. Thursday night free and easy meeting with friends and catching up. Friday in the party tent for a get together. Saturday American supper and raffle followed by bingo. The American supper would not have been out of place at an up-market function. It was amazing. Tea and coffee was on tap all weekend which was lovely, hot cross buns were had. Thanks to the people who kept the boiler topped up. Easter Sunday bacon baps were done for everyone and later saw a well organised egg hunt for the children and an adult and children’s Easter bonnet parade. Some amazing creations. Sunday night saw us in the party tent again just chilling and chatting. An excellent rally, friendly and welcoming as is to be expected on a 4Cs rally. Thanks to the Marshalls for all their hard work and everyone who helped. Personal thanks to SR for the drink on Thursday. Really enjoyed the ra

Market Bosworth RFC

What a scorcher of a weekend at Market Bosworth. Friday was a free and easy day with a Chip shop run in the evening. Thank you, S & J, for doing this as it saved me having to get the Cadac going,. Saturday was very warm so plans were amended. Some of us did the walk in to Market Bosworth and some did the short drive in while others were left dog sitting.There are only a handful of shops in Market Bosworth but some very nice purchases were made. A couple of pints in Ye Olde Red Lion Hotel went down well before returning to our caravans.The evening started with an American supper followed by an entertaining Backward Raffle.There was also a raffle followed by Bingo.The Quiz this rally was really good as we actually knew a lot of the answers. Sunday was a chilled morning in the warm weather. Thanks to the Marshall’s for an enjoyable and entertaining weekend. Your hard work is very much appreciated.  H & P
