  1. JLR have gone for what will make them money, and I agree with them.
  2. And so they should. If mv owners have to pay, then so should the re enactors.
  3. For the simple reason that a lot of the MV people come from abroad and have other things to do on monday, and so sunday's visitors were greeted by a lot of empty pitches and vehicles moving out. That's why a few years ago it has been decided to start & end the show a day earlier. But it has made no difference what so ever, people still pull out early.
  4. I had a great week, but, Was the quietest I have ever known w+p, even the re enactors field had spaces! Toilets really need to be cleaned twice a day- by midday they were awful. Severe lack of traders, was told the prices had been put up. The living history that was there was good. I cannot understand why the new owner does not open to the public on the sunday-it would give him more chance to take gate money if the sat is a washout.
  5. 2 of my mates got there today, people had already roped off spaces! Outer monktons is now public camping, which will upset a few!
  6. Must admit, I have no problems with caravans/civvie tents, but should all be in a seperate area, they did this at capel and it worked well.
  7. Good idea! And if they are no good, I can charge w+p £250!😀
  8. Would love to know they will enforce it!
  9. I think the MV scene is still busy, just in different ways. Facebook has taken alot of the net traffic from forums. I started doing a few steam shows last year instead of MV shows, tbh, ive seen nearly every mv there is and steam shows make a nice change. W+P excitement?, I know alot of people have just become fed up with the way we are treated by the people who run W+P, Ive done 24 out of the last 25 W+P's, and overall have enjoyed them, but as many on here know it's the bloody toilets that spoil it for me. I'm doing a week at W+P this year, have done for the last 20 odd yrs, am I excited about it?, not as much as I used to be, for me I treat it as a weeks holiday, but find the GDSF far better for a week.
  10. New owner of W+P should talk to the owner of the great dorset steam fair. Toilets and showers are easily solvable, just need someone who WANTS to solve it. I honestly think the new owner really does not care.
  11. Agree. Living history was excellent, imo.
  12. You was doing really well until the last paragraph. Why should we take our own loo's when we are charged an extra £10 for toilets and showers? I would say that there was nearly enough toilets, it's the type that everybody was p*ssed off with. Sadly, it does sound like the new owner really does not care, which I cannot understand.
  13. Good of you to come on here ron. Every other show I go to has excellent toilets and does NOT charge MV's to enter. Take the great dorset steam fair; no charge for MV's, show held on fields with NO permanent facilities, and yet clean toilets everywhere and at least 4 shower blocks. Steam engines need HUGE amounts of water, and yet no problems with water supply. You can put on the best show on earth, but people will ALWAYS remember the toilets! I was in the americas field, there was enough toilets, but, toilets without a flap are NOT acceptable. The toilets would also be better being spaced out more. all the toilets in americas field were together and by the entrance. Sadly, americas field was a free for all, people camped in the roadways and huge areas roped off and people taking up to much space, sadly, the twickenham off roaders were not asked to run the americas, which I feel caused the problems, it also meant there was no off road corse in operation. What we, as MV owners find hard to accept is that every other show gets it right, and lets us in FREE! TBH, if I could find another show were I could go for a week, I would stop going to W+P, which is sad as I have been going for 25 yrs bar once. He got the toilets and showers spot on at folkstone, imo, how on earth did he muck up at the hop farm?
  14. 3 of us used a 9x9 for years. Beds arranged in a U shape. All parties Must be tidy though!
