LLANGOLLEN 2012  

 WERE YOU THERE ?

  

Despite the poor weather forecast for the weekend and beyond, Friday saw 91 units arriving throughout the day, until well into the evening. By Sunday the total on site was around 120. The Jubilee Picnic was held on the Bank Holiday Monday as quite a few members had to return home on Tuesday. We were favoured with good weather for the celebrations and everyone who attended got into the Jubilee spirit with colourful hats, flags and bunting and music from Pomp and Circumstance. Two members climbed up to the ruin of Castell Dinas Bran which overlooks the campsite. From the summit, they waved their flags to us – we could see them through binoculars. Many attended the picnic and lots of Jubilee cakes were offered around. There were games for the children including the ever popular Royal Welly throwing and ‘Crown the Queen’ - a variation of ‘pin the tail on the donkey’. The raffle, which was well supported, was also drawn during the afternoon.

In spite of the poor weather for the rest of the meet, members walked and cycled along the canal in both directions towards Llangollen and the Pontcysyllte aqueduct. The ice cream van made a few visits and on Wednesday the Fish & Chip Van called. As the week progressed and the weather worsened only 20 units remained for the last weekend.

On the Saturday some members took advantage of the improved weather and visited a Garden Fete held at in Llangollen at Plas Newydd – an exceptional house steeped in history.

Come Sunday the majority of the remaining units were able to leave the site without assistance. Over the period of the meet, many members said they would be back again next year.
