Irritating, unfriendly and needs updating

The location of this site is great and it has the potential to be first class. Small things let it down but we hope that this review allows some of these to be addressed. On arriving at the site you have to press an intercom button to be allowed in. Be careful. We saw one member lower his window to be greeted by one of the wardens (no face mask) trying to poke his head through the window to speak to him - remember Face and Space! This may seem picky, but as I checked in on Saturday 17th October I was told off for having a membership card that was out of date (our new one hadn't been posted before we left home on our travels, so had expired two weeks earlier). I was then told off for not having the Track & Trace App on my phone. Until you've had a lovely holiday in the south of England on non-club sites you don't realise how well everything runs with simple, minimal direction. On club sites like these its very hard to fully relax. As I was spotted cleaning my motorvan windscreen the warden who booked me in shouted across "I hope that you're only going to clean the windscreen!". Visiting the toilet (why do they have to close the whole block, male & female, for two hours from 10.00 -12.00?) was an experience. I've rarely seen so much white & red tape and so many signs telling us that the water supply had been disconnected and that we must not use the urinal, washbasin, shower etc. We had a sign telling us not to forget to return our wristband to the Milton. The icing on the cake, so to speak, was a full side of A4 that was a rant about baby wipes. There were at least 30 copies of this, all meticulously laminated and apparently endorsed by Sir David Attenborough. It's just a shame that nobody checked it for spelling and punctuation errors. It's just a shame that to stay on this site costs so much and yet you are meant to feel so grateful and guilty. Moving into the 21st Century doesn't mean that you have to use a leaf blower when a brush would do. Why have the noisy vehicles not gone electric? It's a shame to see soo much paper wasted on laminated notices. It's just so depressing that the staff on this site seem to be so irritated by members staying on it. With a more friendly site team, additional stones on most of the hard standings and an upgrading of the toilet blocks, this site would be splendid.
