Very good news!
I have booked the Garvestone scout camp site
for the weekend of:
£1.50p per person/night(there was no space in July)
it sounds like a really nice site surrounded by trees, a small wooded area,
a huge field (bring a footy?), running water, 3 flush loos, and a campfire area.
we can only light fires in the "camp fire" area though you can camp near it.
we are welcome to use hammocks but there's not space for many so be prepared to use a tarp instead, the warden also suggested using pioneering poles to make some sort of structure, but thatís up to you.
many of the "trees" are too small for hammock use.
there are no shops in Garvestone, the nearest is Tescoís in Dereham several miles away.
There's no mention of showers but hey I'm sure we can rough it!
There are no neighbours apart from a church yard (they don't make much noise).
i will need details ASAP about whos coming, to figure out the cost.
to get to it from Norwich follow the A47 southern bypass to Dereham,
at Dereham take a left from the dual carridgeway on to the Wymondham road B1135,
a few miles down the B1135 is Garvestone, turn right into the village.
The entrance to the camp site is a small track next to a church, opposite town lane,
the track goes down hill grid ref: TG 023 073(if that's any help)
these are photo's of the site Biddlesby posted last year.
The site will not have anyone else on it so it's all ours!
So make your excuses to the boss, friends and family,
make space in your diary,
pack your bags,
and come along!
