    • Kelling 2022  20.9.22 to 27.9.22
      That time of year again.  Please can you let me know if you want pitches for 2022 and I will see if I can reserve them again,  Not sure they will as we have
      e mails saying they will only hold pitches until 8.11.21
       
      I will do my best to sort it all out again if they allow, but you must let me know asap if you will be going.  We do not want to lose the best pitches if we can avoid it.
      They are asking for folks to book via phone which should be fun as they are not too good at answering the phone  LOL
       
      Also I note that there are extra charges now for awnings and dogs I think.
       
      Please let me know asap
       
      Look forward to seeing you all this year as we have had a long gap and I have forgotten how to use my kit 😁
       
      Thanks
