It seems like we've literally unpacked from this year's Sleepover and some have been enquiring about next year's show.  Which is lovely to know that many see our club meet as part of their year.

Myself and Tallulah have a 'different' year ahead of us and that in-combination with other dates that are already in the diary, is making it look like the Autumn would be a better time to have our main club get-together.

So, I've no idea of the date yet, but certainly for next year, think of the Sleepover as being an autumnal event. Basketball

Sounds like a lovely thing to look forward to after a busy summer. If there's any thought of a change of venue can I make a request for somewhere central for us northerners? And no, I don't think of Oxfordshire as central!

We'll certainly look into a number of aspects of the show going forward. Smile

Travel issues - No motorways Laughing

There have been 3 or 4 'doos' in Wales and the Forest of Dean but numbers were difficult at times.

Leicestershire is the most central county in the country - great links to everywhere and there's a fab site at a place called Wing on the Leicestershire and Rutland border.

We stayed at Wing Hall for a few nights after the Easter Eastern meet in Wells-next-the-sea last year. Great site, we were one of only 3 vans staying. The kids had great fun collecting fresh eggs from the chickens!

That's two votes - yes, it's a fab site and Rutland Water is a short cycle away - gorgeous scenery too. Red kites swirl overhead and one time we were there we were treated to a meteorite shower !!

Wing is a lovely site and it may be centrally situated in England but I think you'll find that the Trough of Bowland is the centre of the UK!

Trough of Bowland is the centre of Britain, the centre of the UK is just off the coast at Morecambe.

Go on, hit a man whilst he's down! You're right, though, it's the centre of Great Britain.

Martin and Voyager - your comments raise an interesting debate. According to some, yes the centre is indeed the Trough of Bowland but what does that make the Midlands the middle of ?? Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I believe it is the center of England. As that is Lindley Hall Farm, in Fenny Drayton, Leicestershire

or the center of population is Appleby Parva, Leicestershire, just south of Derby back in the late 90's.

or the furtherest point from the sea which is Coton in the Elms, Derbyshire.

Got to love Wikipedia!

I suspect that the centre of the Kombi population is further south, for reasons of weather, sea, beaches and proximity to ferry ports.

Jls - typical little Englander, ignoring all the other parts of the UK (yes, the UK incl NI).

Anyone fancy starting a thread ' How long is a piece of string' Smile Talking of which, when I was at school we had to find the centre of the UK using a cut out map, a piece of string with a weight on, and using it from different parts, it came out as Meriden, very scientific. study
