Trent Valley F.O.L & Children's Weekend 2018

This was our first meet as new members and we could'nt have chosen a better one .
It was well run and the entertainment was great.
Thanks to the stewards Linda & Nelson and all the volunteers for making thisgreat event
a really enjoyable one. Thanks also to the rest of TVDA members for being so friendly we really feel part of a great association.
For next year could it be possible to have a parade of home made lanterns?

TrentFest 2017

We've had a great weekend -thank you
Throughly enjoyed the event, location, helpers, other campers, music, food, drink etc.
Defo recommend to friends and other club members.
Kids water fight??
Maybe a BBQ would go down well??
Someone who sells chips??
Later finish on Sunday??
Better Elsan facilitties near to water to rinse.

John Smith, Kat & Riley Mallory-Smith

Bar & Toilets back in left hand corner.
Bar generator too loud so near to caravans and toilets too far away.
Would like to see children's inflatables nearer to the arena so that we can watch them play while enjoying the bands on stage.
Check pitch sizes.
Wrist bands issued and worn by all members, booked and paid to camp.
Security on site esecially gate on Sat


Da Unknown

Thanks for a great weekend for us newbies.
Everyone so friendly helpful, The stewards were friendly but not intrusive loved how they patrolled the area.
Felt very safe, so quiet at night, amazing considering how many were here.
A couple of extra toilets and some small bins round the main arena would be great.

Mandy & Steve Grainger

Da Unknown

Had a great weekend, well done to all who help to organised it.
It's a shame people don't listen about rubbish.
Extra carparking could have been done better people just pulled up any how and left their cars.
But great weekend.

Pete Butler

Da Unknown

Brill as always.
Made very welcome.
Learn not to bring so much & drink ha ha
Can't wait to learn the dance.
We like a Fish & Chip van.

M Down

Da Unknown

Great weekend.
Congratulations to organisers.
Few more toilets needed.
Recomend a band called (League of Mentalmen)
Great Rock Punk Band

Carol North

Da Unknown

Fantastic Weekend
Enough Said
Can the raffle be drawn earlier on a Sunday please?
Can't wait for next year
Thank you all xx

Karen & Tony

Da Unknown

Cheap and cheerful chip van as for a family the other food stalls was too expensive.
Ice cream van was V good value for money, I'd like to see this again next year.
A stall selling inflatables, such as air instruments like 2016 as we missed this, this year.
A bungee inflatable like 2016 as this was fun for both adults + children, this year they were only suitable for children.
Maybe a bucking bronco?
All in all a fab weekend and we look forward to next year.
Thank you for your hard work.


Da Unknown

We have never been before had a fab time met some great people and we would recommend it to others.
The only negative is there needs to be more toilets be still very well organised.

Gary Palmer

Da Unknown

Had a brilliant time as usual maybe would be nice to have some lawn games Friday afternoon although you were all busy booking units in but I am sure you could get volunteers thanks again.
Also could you please draw the raffle late Saturday night as we have to leave before this is drawn so we don't buy tickets.

K Milnes

Da Unknown

Had a lovely weekend lovely the bands we could not hear them full due to the noice to the genorator from the beer tent, we could not sit outside the van without listening over the genorator we didn't ask to move because were with other friends

Bev & Bri

Derbyshire Da

Our first rally with CCC most enjoyable weekend.
A bit noisy after 11 between lines.
Some magnetic lights would have been good in the 3 mobile toilets and a fish and chip van on sat nightwould have gone down really well.

Geoff Mercer

Da Unknown

Children missed the circus the circus act and craft apart from the bouncy castle nothing for the children.
Also although a very good band Saturday night headliners are very niche genre of music the first years headliners we feel was a better finish
But thanks for another cracking weekend TrentFest

Julie Gower

Loved it fantastic meet
Well done everybody you have done an amazing job
Please book Jungle Lion again they were great
One suggestion to make life easier maybe you could give out extra car passes for additional people in your unit so stewards know that they have paid.

Dawn Ashton

Da Unknown

* Floodlight above the porta-loos
*Fancy dress to be judged Saturday evening instead of afternoon
Everything else was perfect

Darren & Donna Kirk

Some pitches seemed quite close together with Car Van Awning
Possibly wristbands to deter visitors as they were still coming on
Irresponsible dog owners ( Dogs roaming alone not just once)
Not to have a skip on site as not right putting all rubbish next to bins

Maxine Williams Da unknown

Great time, good value for money a well managed meet with something for everyone
See you next year

Tony Warrington

Da Unknown

Absolutely fantastic, well done to everyone who worked so hard to make the weekend so enjoyable for us all credit to you all.
Only downside was people having no regard for the rules ie not picking up after their dogs making lots of noise until 11.45pm and not sticking to 5mph

Normanton On Soar BH weekend 26th-29th May 2017

This is our first ever rally with TVDA, and it was brill.
We have only ever been on two other rallies, first one was a small meet and no one spoke to us or made us welcome.
Then we went on a New Year rally that was not much better.
But at this meet at Normanton On Soar it was very nice and found the people very welcoming, we had great music every night,
and because of this we are now going to re new our membership.

Thank you
Mr & Mrs Day South Lincs Da

We had a lovely time nice and friendly it was lovely to see younger people and children well behaved
