Autumn 2017 Newsletter

With autumn upon us, EEDA’s upcoming events take on some exciting changes.

Our Halloween meet is being held over the weekend of 27/29th October, at Riverside School in Hullbridge. Cost is £25.00 per unit for the entire weekend and we will be organising fun & games and a disco on Saturday evening (non-member guests welcome @ £5.00 each), while for the younger members daytime games (weather dependant) ending in ‘Trick or Treat’. Pitches are hard standing, but we can also accommodate tents should you want to brave the ghosts and ghouls (or should that be the cold!).

November brings our fireworks meet over the weekend 3/5th November. This year we are staying at the Kelvedon Hatch Club site. All pitches are hard standing, have EHU, and are only £10.00 per night! Fireworks are being launched nearby by the Ongar Round Table and we hope to be organising transport for a nominal fee for those who require it.
This is a BOOKED MEET. For bookings please call Richard on 07980 270872, as we only have a limited number of pitches left. Please let Richard know if you would need transport as we need numbers to be able to book the mini bus.

Next is our Christmas Party Weekend, where we have not only our famous party on Saturday evening, but this year’s panto is Aladdin and Santa will be visiting too. This is also a booked meet. More information and booking form are on our website –

Our final meet of the year is our New Year’s Party weekend in Clacton. Full details are on our website including booking form.

The 2018 calendar will be released shortly, for which we will need stewards. This year we have had to cancel 4 meets due to a lack of stewards and in 2018 more will need to be cancelled if we cannot get stewards in time. If you are interested in stewarding please contact our sites secretary Paul Bush by email for more information.
We are also looking for stewards for our 2018 Holiday sites. All our holiday sites require 2 sets of stewards. You do not need to steward the whole event (just 1 week will help), you can do it on your own, as a couple, or even as a family. You get a free pitch, some carry a fuel allowance, and you also get days off to enjoy the local area or just relax. Don’t worry if you haven’t stewarded before as we will do our best to ensure that an experienced pair of hands is available to assist you. Please get in touch –

Finally, in March 2018 some of our existing committee members are stepping down. We URGENTLY need new committee members to take on positions within the DA to help run it. If you are interested in helping or want to know more, please contact our chariman Steve Ponton by email
