CARAVAN/CAMPING AREA
There will be an area for caravans, and those hardy souls who are prepared to camp. There will be electric hook up points again this year at a cost of £60 including VAT, which must be booked direct with the East Of England Showground. Last year the area of the site that had the hook up facilities was well policed and this solved the ‘problems’ from previous years so I am sure it will be repeated this year. At present we do not have all the details concerning who to pay etc..
