Covid 19 update on meets

Below is the latest guidance from HQ regarding camping
In accordance with this all meets including THS sites are cancelled in June
We will bring you all further info as soon as possible
Please all keep safe and I hope to see you all out camping as soon as possible

Further to communication on 17 March, the Executive Committee have been meeting with the Director General on a weekly basis, through this difficult time. The longer the lockdown period lasts, the more challenging the situation becomes for the Club, especially as the timing of the lockdown has coincided with the start of our 2020 camping season. The Club is a seasonal business, and there is now the real possibility that sites will be shut throughout our peak season. As you would expect, all our attention and our focus is on planning for when and how we can reopen the sites, and how we manage the Club during this time of closure.

Any opening will of course be in line with government guidance and we are working with the rest of the industry to seek more information and clarity on what any post lockdown strategy may be.

As well as the unknown around timings, it’s our expectation that we will not be in a position to open the entire network, and we will certainly not be operating at full capacity – not least to ensure continued ‘social distancing’. There will undoubtedly be other operational considerations as the Club and our camping offer adapts to fit with the ‘new normal’.

In relation to social camping, the area you are most involved in, just as we are planning for the future, we are aware that you will want to do the same, and we feel we should support you in doing this.

Also, please be aware that the decision has been taken to cancel all Meets and Temporary Holiday Sites with a start date in June. This will be actioned by the Exempted Camping team.
