Renewing club membership after short break

In August, we made the decision to sell our caravan, as we felt we were not using it enough to justify the expense of storage and insurance costs etc

Of course, literally as the van was being towed away we realised we'd made a mistake, and then set to finding a replacement. We were lucky enough not to have lost our storage, and in two weeks will be collecting our new van, costing us twice as much as we sold the old one for...

Doh!

So we've joined the club again. Although we sold the van in August, and cancelled our membership then, it ran until the end of October. We renewed on 17th November, so effectively only had a break in membership of 17 days, but have now got a new membership number plus on our cards it states "Member since 2020"!

I know that, in the grand scheme of things, this isn't really an issue, but it seems a shame that our original membership years, from October 2011, have been wiped out :(

Having said that, as a family, we've been members since 1969 but that's not recorded anywhere either!

It happens. You left and rejoined so you start again but it doesn’t matter, does it?

The thing that surprises me is that you rejoined during lockdown while sites are shut in England. I would have waited.

I've got an old 10 year membership sticker I can send to you if you want. Its never been used but I don't think its worth much anyway.

It doesn't matter at all! Just seems a bit of a shame for 17 days :)

We've only really rejoined now in anticipation of using the van (which we don't collect until after lockdown) before Christmas

Thanks for the offer but we're not really sticker people! :)

Actually, thinking about it, we probably had one before but didn't use it!

They renewed on 17 Nov but don’t get the new van for another 2 weeks yet 🤷🏻‍♂️

True, but we wanted to have the club membership in place in order to be able to make bookings. We're determined to make the most of our new van from Day One!
