As the Easter bunny will be visiting the kids he has asked us how many children will be there so he has a better idea on how many Easter eggs to bring. If you can let us know in advance if you are coming with children then we can let him know how many Easter eggs he will need. Just reply to this email.
The Mayday bank holiday takes us to Barleylands in Billericay from the 28th April until 1st May where pitches are only £8 per night, and we have obtained reduced price admission for campers to the farm park. The site has toilets & showers and we have a limited number of EHU available at additional cost. The marquees will be up and we will be organising some evening entertainment such as cash bingo, a quiz or beetle drive and a raffle.

The following weekend we will be at Crowsheath Fisheries in Downham where fishing is available via the landowners at additional cost.

On the 12th-14th May we visit our first new site for 2017 at the Bell Public House in Panfield near Braintree. This site is like many others this year, just £8 per night and units camping both nights will receive a £5 voucher for use against food purchases in the restaurant. The site also has toilet facilities available.

Next we have the Eastern region AGM and family fun weekend on the 19th-21st May. This year it is at Assington Barns near Sudbury. More details are on the Eastern Region website -
