This was our umpteenth visit to Rookesbury, but our first venture out since the beginning of lockdown, so were a little apprehensive.
The site was the busiest we have seen it, but we needn't have worried.
The booking in procedure was Covid secure, but very safe and speedy. The washroom procedures were clearly explained, and we were given a wristband with our pitch number on. Everyone complied with the rules, and we never had any problem.
The wardens were great. Hard working, but very friendly. We really felt very welcome.
The only negative we have, and this applies to all sites, was speeding drivers. Despite additional signs put up by the wardens stating the limit of 5mph, people were still driving at speeds approaching 25mph. On one occasion someone from the tent area came around a bend at such speed, he nearly hit me. He got a a severe reprimand! We were pitched near the exit, and quite a few cars went up the gears as they approached the gate.
The club probably needs to spend more money in this area if people can't be trusted to comply. Perhaps more speed bumps, which are a real pain, but its better than a child being killed
