I'm sure Sandringham will be a great attraction in itself if people haven't visited before.. Smile

Malcolm The whole of Norfolk is really interesting and well worth a visit. For the DCOS, Sandringham is really the Jewel in the crown. Lots of interest from vintage Royal Cars, the Shotgun collection & of course the House itself!

Hope to see you there.

That's how I feel too, lots of people near us last year were off ehu, we're quite happy with our solar panel. A retrograde, expensive step, leaning towards vans produced by the industry requiring too much power. It now sounds very expensive with all the other costs thrown in.

Couldn't agree with you more.   The expense of installing the infra structure for 6amp electric for  a couple of days is out of all proportion to the benefit.

I knew that all pitches for 2017 at Sandringham would have the provision of EHU but I assumed that it would still be optional.  Just not needed for 4 or 5 days away.

Very expensive trip if you go Friday night and want to attend all the entertainment but if it fills up good luck to the CC for organising and predicting that members want to spend that sort of money.

BUt essential for me to have a reliable & constant mains supply. At home I have even had to advise the electrical supplier of the equipment I use so that they can take measures in the event of a power cut.  Yuk!

But with respect there is a world of difference between catering for your needs and making it compulsory for everyone else.

I have to say it is a long time since we have paid less than £100 for a National WITHOUT EHU, so I'm not moaning about being given it included in a package price of £95, all daytime activities are free and its in the Queen's garden, no pleasing some people though is there Wink

TF I have a friend who uses a CPAP via an inverter and his battery and solar panel copes well off hook up.  

I think you can get 12v power supplies for some of them as well  

Alison having visited Sandringham in the last few years I'd agree that the venue certainly adds value Wink
