We have been caravanning for close on 40 years, but have never rallyed.  As our caravanning draws towards its end the idea of attending the National, especially as it is at Sandringham does appeal, especially to the DCOS.  

However, I understand that there is no EHU facility.  In the past that would not in itself have been a problem, but now I have to have an air pump to assist breathing at night, - and that has to have a mains supply.  So I suspect that that will make it a no go. - Unless I have been given incorrect information and there is an EHU facility.

Can anyone confirm?

Write your comments here...We had EHU on last years National so it would surely be the same for 2017 too.  6 amp EHU.

I just checked and it says a 25 metre cable is sufficient for connecting to EHU as most pitches are within that. So you will be able to have EHU, Tigerfish, from what I have read.

We attended at Belvoir and had electric, that was when we thought we needed it, we know we don't now. In your case tigerfish I'd put it on my booking form so if limited supply you take priority. So far its been our inky one. Hoping to make next years as we like the area as well as The National. Seems a shame that you've never experienced it, we did it quite early in on and recommend, even if it is only once.

TF, there was an area set aside last year for anyone needing exta help, I know you're not disabled but I wonder if you would benefit from choosing that area to ensure you have good ehu access. If you decide to choose the main area we'd be together in the south west section which includes where you live. There is a nice get together for each section during the rally, we really enjoyed it, might see you there but undecided at the moment!

As it's probably our last year of club membership we had the national down in our diary with final decision to be made when the CC announced what the inevitable tribute acts would be. 

They have and we won't be going Laughing

I hope everyone that goes has a great time. We love big events like this - just need to find one for that weekend now
