COVID 19

 

Dear Member,

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic things are a little different to the DA and THS camping that we are used to and we now have to operate as pop up campsites rather than social gatherings for the foreseeable future. In particular, please note that you will need to book your pitch before travelling. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the new rules for camping set out below in accordance with the Camping and Caravanning Club Green Paper 3.16 and the government guidelines. You may find it useful to print or save this document as we are unable to provide paper copies. We are all learning together and things may change as we gain experience of the new way we have to operate and government and HQ guidance evolves.

We are sure we will all adjust to the new way of camping and are just very pleased to be offering the great value afforded by DA camping once again!

Before Travelling:

Wherever possible please book your pitch in advance by contacting our booking officer Alison Abbott for the information on meets you wish to attend. Please book your space once that meets booking date has opened. (see Facebook or website for dates upcoming meets) before the meet starts. Please send all details via email, text or Facebook message to allow us to keep information for the 2 weeks needed. Your details will be deleted 21 days after the close of the meet.

You will still need to show your membership card and book in when you arrive at site.

If you have not booked and paid in advance please call the steward/booking officer to confirm there is a pitch available for you. They will then ask you to text them your name, membership number, home address and arrival and departure dates as part of our Track & Trace procedures.
