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.

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

Hi JK, And sadly that seems to include the weather. Having had wall to wall sunshine for much of the time since March its now looking more like 'holiday weather' for all todays arrivals.

Will be interesting to hear their reasons/excuses but maybe it was the pubs opening at 0600?!!

No doubt JK if you don't let them in their reviews will tell us how rude the Wardens were and what a terrible site you runsurprised

Is it possible the 6:30 arrivals have come a long way and  miscalculated the journey time given the vagaries of the countries roads? I know I find it almost impossible to calculate some journey times and have got it wrong before now.

AD, you cannot have your sat nav set up very accurately then.

Or it could also be possible that some just don't follow rules, break the law by setting off the night before and turning up on site to use LNA and toilets!

Let's be honest here, with today's technology and smartphones, everyone has access to an app which will tell them their arrival time - even the law breakers wink

 But, as you say, we can all make miscalculations.

While I agree (again) with you that it is impossible to calculate journey times to some degree of accuracy sometimes, especially as you do touring abroad, but this is the UK, and indeed England (have they come from Scotland?) with smaller distances and google maps/GPS and arriving after 6 am is really taking the 'biscuit'?

It means they left during the previous evening or very early morning implying a conscious decision to do that, and arriving at least six hours early really cannot be excused as miscalculating the journey times?

6hrs+, that’s a mighty big miscalculation🤷🏻‍♂️. I tend to be later using a satnav, it’ll say 4hr journey but more often than not I meet Unexpected slow moving traffic.

2 points Peedee

1 any journey with Birmingham  involved defies acurate   timing

2  I have yet to to have sat nav predict anything like an accurate time until the last few miles.

However on journeys I have done before on the continent  I can tell to a few minutes even on a long trip.

Well did we really think that people would abide by the rules, my money is on it getting worse during the day, people arriving early and clashing with people who are on time, people arriving late and clashing with people who are either on time early or late, and if Jk lets them in they will be on social media bragging about how they got on site at 0700 hrs, so there will be some folk sat on the motorway with smoke coming out of every orifice, the joys, glad i am at home feet up newspaper & coffee at the ready.
