If you are a keen supporter of the CL network you might like to know that there's a dedicated support group for CL owners where they share best practice, information and encourage other landowners to set up new CLs. 

The group liaises with the Club on a regular basis, but like the CLs themeselves, it is entirely independent. The group receives no financial support or direction from the Club.The group was formed in 2014 and now has over 600 members.  Find out more on our website

How you can help: If you are visiting a CL and think they could benefit from advice or support from fellow CL owners, please point them in the direction of the group.  Likewise, if you know someone with a great spot for a new CL, the Owners Group website is a complementary source of information to the Clubs own guide for setting up a CL.

The group is entirely run by volunteers (all CL owners), is free to join and welcomes feedback from CAMC members, especially those with knowledge of the CL network!

Excellent looking website. I need to return for a more detailed look through. It might explain a lot of the questions asked about CL's.

Great website, lots of info

It just needs (and deserves) many many more CL owners to join to make it the go to place for CL users.

A great source of help and information for all CL owners and I would thoroughly recommend.

Looks a grand web site, well done. Is there anywhere for a CL user to add comments, or is it purely for CL owners and prospective owners? Is there a list of current members of your website, so that when visiting one we, as users, know whether or not to put forward the idea of joining to a CL owner who is not a member?

A great use of technology to bring a diverse group together for the common good. Well done to the organisers.

Thank you all for your kind words and supportive comments.

To address a couple of questions;

How to provide feedback?:

1) Via this CT thread - which will be monitored

2) If you are on Facebook:- Via a Post, or a Personal Message on the CL Booking Page which is monitored daily by the admin team

3) by email:

List of Owners in the Group?

We have not published this yet, and currently it would be an admin burden to do so as it changes with the addition and demise of CLs.  I would simply ask any owner you meet 'Have you heard of the CL Owners Group?' and if they say no, or are not sure, point them in our direction.  We realise that some CLs simply 'dont do technology', but unfortunately we have limited resources and can only work effectively with those who have web / email access.

If you are on a CL site and would like us (the Owners Group) to contact a specific owner, feel free to email us their details (as above) and we will send them an email invite or give them a call.

A tedious exercise but you could trawl the email addresses from the handbook.

Surely the club could give out a document with all these details if asked? Might interfere with GDPR regulations but the addresses are already out there?

Ted, I noticed on your new front page the comments about the "Dump, Fill and Run Brigade" and charging and extra £5 for these one nighters. My opinion is this will do nothing to help the CL owners it will simple drive motorhome owners elsewhere. It would be much better to offer and just charge for a stop off service exclusive of an overnight stay.

Thanks Ted, an interesting read.

I would tend to agree with Peedee, I don't like the term "dump, fill and run" brigade as they are at least staying overnight. Are one night stays a problem, don't a lot of caravanners do this too if they are stopping over on long distances? Just my thoughts. 

A very good web site though, well thought out, all the best for your future efforts.
