At The Spinney Caravan Site, New Alresford
The Avenue, Alresford, Hampshire, SO24 9EP
As last year, this year's Southern Christmas meet will be held for four nights from Wednesday 4th December, leaving on Sunday 8th, at The Spinney Caravan Site in Alresford in Hampshire. The campsite is normally closed at that time of year, but they are opening it specially for us. The campsite is small with only fresh water and loo emptying facilities, but does have hook-ups for up to 16 vans. There are no hardstandings, but if there isn't enough hard ground some vans can camp on the driveway. The price will be £18 per night, per van.
The centre of Alresford is a short walk away, with lots of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. A market is held every Thursday morning in the main street, and there is a lovely Christmas Market in Winchester, which we can get to by bus from the village.
We will be holding our Christmas lunch in The Bell on Thursday 5th. On Saturday afternoon I will book places on the Santa Special train on the Watercress Line for those who would like to go. This costs £18 to include wine and mince pie. Please let me know which you would like to attend. If you can't camp, but would like to join us for the lunch or the train ride could you let me know as well.
The campsite doesn't have a website but here is a link to the UK Campsite's page about it.
and here are two websites with information about the town.
I will be booking the train by 22nd September so please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in coming
