Thousands of people donned biking gear to pay tribute to those killed in the line of duty.

The annual Ride to the Wall event attracted people on motorbikes from across the UK all keen to take part in a special remembrance service to honour those who have died while serving their country since 1945.

About 1,000 poeple gathered in the car park next to Drayton Manor Club Site before travelling in convoy to the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire, where they were joined by a further 19,000 bikers.

Make a pledge to barbecue

Cooking alfresco

What a summer it’s been. Warm, balmy days swathed with sunshine, perfect weather for camping and perfect weather for dining alfresco. We finally had the barbecue summer we’d all been hoping for.

There’s something special about eating and cooking outdoors isn’t there? I don’t know whether it’s all that fresh air and exercise we experience while camping that builds a healthy appetite or whether it’s the sizzle and spit of the barbecue that gets our taste buds going. Whatever it is, fresh food cooked outdoors always tastes mouth-wateringly good.

Hopefully you’ve all had plenty of opportunities to fire up the barbecue, gather your friends and tuck into some tasty treats this summer.

Fabulous Sites in Fantastic Locations

Loch Ness Shores

Have you heard about our new Loch Ness Shores Club Site? I hope so – it’s located on the south shore of the world-famous Loch, close enough that you may even spot Nessie from your camping pitch!

It sounds exciting doesn’t it…? Every small ripple will have many reaching for their cameras, hoping to be the first to catch the first official glimpse of the infamous creature lurking below in the Loch’s depths.

And let me tell you, this is just one of the Club’s unusual locations on our site network; we have many more exciting locations that all the family will enjoy visiting.
