Welsh Hi Ho Update

Chris Lewis writes: The final arrangements for the upcoming Dale Weekend have now been finalised. Camping and parking will be supplied at the nearby Dale Hill farm campsite. The campsite has facilities for all including toilets and on site showers, the site is situated on the Hill to the north of Dale village and approximately half way between Dale Village and West Dale surf beach.

We are having to use the camp site as new council regulations forbid any over night parking in the village car park, and this is a law which has been vigourously enforced this year with numerous fines being dished out. The camp site is within walking distance but is more likely that people will want to commute from the site to the car park in Dale. My van will be available for people to use also, but i would recommend bringing bikes if you have them.

Trailers can be left in the village itself down by the windsurfing centre, and space has been secured for this, athough this will need to be co ordinated by me.

The number for "Dale Hill Farm campsite" is 01646 636359 though you don't need to book as Sharon has very kindly put aside our own field to use! There will be a £5 per night charge, which I'm sure you'll agree is a very fair price to pay.

The weekend will follow a similar theme to the previous two years though this year we are hoping that cliff jumping will be going ahead without any hitches! Rowing has been organised so we need to sort out some proper teams! and with the boat we are hoping to get round to see some more beaches weather and wind permitting.

Although the car parking situation has forced some minor changes upon us for this year, the event should still be excellent fun and with the current weather situation being so changeable we may even get some decent winds (anything from the north will be very good).

If you have any further questions or queries then please call me straight away on 07976 782685 at anytime.
