This annual event, which has variously been known as Camping Week, Family Week and now Holiday week over the years since it’s inception, aims to bring all our members and visitors together to share a week of sports and other activities, to socialise. and to have fun in the sun!
Competitive Sports of Volley Ball, Miniten, Badminton, Petanque and even Crazy Golf, will take place throughout the week for interested adults.
The rest of the week will host a variety of sporting competitions and general entertainment for all tastes.
Many of our members will be staying the whole week on site in their caravans or tents. Visitors are welcome to bring their own and we have electric hook ups, showers and toilets to use and the Clubhouse kitchen will be providing food and refreshments throughout the day. You are invited to bring your own food to cook in the evenings on our large, communal, under cover barbeque. This is in itself a social gathering around the coals and you can then sit in banquet style on the patio and put the world to rights over a leisurely meal.......bring your own wine or beer as we are not licensed premises. Our ‘week’ starts on the Saturday afternoon. Don`t worry.......the weather is usually kind to us during Family Week and rain will never stop play......we will continue under the gazebo or move indoors!
The pool will host swimming events for all ages and abilities, and be used in between for pure relaxation. You don't need to be energetic to join in!
Whatever events are happening during the day, be they Tea Dances, Quizzes, or whatever is dreamt up and desired; the day will always finish with an evening barbeque on the patio and round off with music and dancing.
Sunday is a wind down day when you can relax around the pool and chat with your new friends........you're guaranteed to have made some!
All activities are subject to change depending on the wishes of those present, plans for the whole week are intentionally kept fluid other than the socials on the two Saturday nights few firm plans are made in advance.
Hope to see you there!
