2014 trips so far Empty The awning's new

Post by neilwragg on Fri 25 Apr 2014, 8:30 am

The new awning is from http://www.tentvaletingservices.co.uk (they made that original one over twenty years ago)

But I did get the sewing machine out to make matching cushions...

I remember that thread. The woman who unpacked it when you sent it to them was the woman who made it 20 years ago. The new one does look good.

2014 trips so far Empty Wellington Country Park - May Bank Holiday

Post by neilwragg on Wed 07 May 2014, 8:44 am

A local site for the May Bank Holiday weekend, together with some friends we lent them our Bell Tent.
We seemed to have bags of food everywhere!
The home made lantern hanging off the awning is a headtorch shining into a bottle of water, makes a great diffused light.

The site is in the woods and some of the pitches were very sheltered, different to a big field in the open.
