Your preference for Ambleside 2018 has been noted.
I have had another email this morning from The Brick Kilns site in your part of Norfolk where you very kindly investigated the facilities on our behalf a couple of months ago. I as a northerner was concerned before your visit about their tariffs but you did report after seeing the facilities that you considered their charges reasonable. Is this what is meant by the north south divide ?
Reading between the lines, it appears that they are still touting for business this year 2017 and are also promoting the time around the Christmas festivities. I have included the content of today’s email below for member’s consideration.
I am contacting you to see if you may be interested in using our park for your annual rally. We have great facilities which have been enjoyed by other organisations like yourselves in the past and we’re very happy to accommodate small or large groups, offering a bespoke service.
The park, which is open from 17th March to 2nd January, is set on three levels covering 13 acres, with 60 spacious all weather semi-hard standing pitches and a camping field for your caravans or motor caravans.
Our Barney’s Restaurant & Bar can cater for numbers up to 50 people, offering both hot & cold buffets and 2-3 course meals as required. We also have a games room, which is ideal for coffee-mornings/meetings and we are more than happy to cater for any special requests.
We are also located 3 miles from the Thursford Christmas Spectacular and can offer pre-show or post-show meals (minimum 15 persons) at a very reasonable cost and we’re happy to accommodate any special requirements and discuss menu options with you.
The park has ample washroom facilities as well as drive-on pitches which can be used throughout the year. For your information, I have enclosed a flier that was used for our restaurant over the summer period (although your package can be tailored accordingly) which will give you a “feel” for Barney’s Restaurant & Bar.
The flier referred to directly above was not enclosed or attached but I assume it will be available on their website if anyone is interested.
Although I currently feel that it is already too late to squeeze a meet in here this summer, it is a consideration for 2018. If members feel that it is not too late to try it this summer, then confirm your interest by starting a new post entitled Norfolk 2017.
Prior to this, the third email from Brick Kilns, I had considered visiting this area around the time of Norfolk Show 2017, although I would not intend camping at the show. If I did visit this site for a few days, it would be my intention to further research the site, facilities, prices and menus for 2018 and the possibility of having a pre Christmas meet there in December of this year 2017. Any interest in that or do members have other suggestions for a pre Christmas meet ? If so, don’t be shy in starting a new post along the lines of Pre Christmas meet 2017.
