It would be great to have feedback on the caravan sites and how the safety measures are working. We will be watching for the next two weeks to see how safe the sites are before we decide to start touring again.  Maybe a lot of people will put reviews on individual caravan sites.

This thread is specifically and solely for members currently visiting sites to offer useful feedback.

Please keep your posts on the topic of "caravan sites opening and safety measures on sites" only.

Thank you.

Its the members staying on the sites that will determine how safe the sites are i.e. whether they maintain social distance etc. I hope people do follow the guidelines as its the only way we will be able to return to not just a normal life but an enjoyable one!

OH was on a caravan site in Somerset today (Southfork, a nice stop off from the A303) he was visiting in connection with nearby fishing permits. The owners have made great efforts but everything depends on the way people behave, a worry for all site owners.

Good point, Tigi, it’s the people on site who will be the determining factor. The club can put all manner of safety precautions in place but, if members don't act responsibly, it could all count tor nothing.

We each need to take responsibility for ourselves and with due regard for those around us while hoping they do the same. The people on site can change daily so it’s perfectly possible for safety levels to change with them.

I'm staying home.

There could be potential for minor outbreaks of friction: delays and queuing at washing up, waste and toilet emptying; passing too close to pitches; waiting to arrive/depart, and other unforeseen casus belli!

Pent up frustration may be unleashed amongst the otherwise peaceful members of our club. Surely not!cry

I just hope that all those that have opted to use a CL for the first time are fair to the owners, and not expecting what they might get on a Club Site.

Be kind everyone, it’s a learning curve for all!

Morning

I'll be on here with some feedback as the week goes on. I guess it's going to be a good while before folks get used to things. For example, we have a 50% reduction in shared facilities to allow for social distancing and the extra cleaning regime in place so there will be queues, no shop, a one in one out at reception to name a few.

Some things don't change though, there's 2 outfits outside the gate now (6.15) Happy Days

You have my sincere best wishes for the forthcoming days and weeks. No doubt your patience will be tested to the full.

Who turns up to a site at around 6am??? I could never be a warden. If I were, the barrier would be left down until the opening hour and under the new regime of allocating pitches, the 'early birds' would be allocated the worst pitches on site. It may then deter them from doing it again. No doubt they want to be the first to post on social media..."All set up at.....feet up, bar-b on, ale following.....it's only 8.25am"

Sorry to be a grumpy old cynic. Enjoy undecidedwinklaughing
