Bank Holiday Disaster Averted!!!

A great big thank you to members of Liverpool and SW Lancashire DA (LSWLDA)who helped myself and my husband avert a disastrous end to a lovely bank holiday weekend at their meet in the grounds of Oteley House at Ellesmere Shropshire.

We had just moved our motorvan from its pitch to firm ground in preparation for picking up our levelling ramps and track mats ( the ground was a little damp in places!! ) when we found we had a puncture in a rear tyre – not what we expected for a 2 yr old ‘van. It was at this point that our “friendly” club came into its own. Our  meet steward immediately summoned help in the form of extra hands, jacks, blocks, mats etc. and the spare was fitted in no time even though we had to consult hand book and manual for jacking points and spare removal. No easy job for an experienced mechanic let alone my husband who has had Parkinsons for seven years.

We were able to return home safely after a most enjoyable Bank holiday meet where LSWLDA made us most welcome.

On arrival they suggested where to pitch to avoid soft ground and the best route to walk to town to watch the carnival. On Sunday we were all invited to a coffee morning and then a guided tour, by DA Chairman Les, of the normally private gardens and grounds of Oteley house. Les had many anecdotes and tales of the house and estate, as he said he had been coming for xx years although his wife said he was only yy years old, we enjoyed them all.

A great weekend whose conclusion only served to emphasise once again why we have been members of this superb club for 31 years.
