New Milton

Friday 5th November 2021
2 nights

This meet has been cancelled

We camp at Ballard School in New Milton, which is just south of the New Forest and also not far from the coast.

The field here is not accessible during the winter months, so all units will have to use hard standing pitches on the visitors car park.

The site opens at 2pm on Friday, and closes on Sunday. The stewards for this meet can be contacted by the Wessex mobile phone on 07939 592 200.

What’s on

Friday evening

On Friday evening we will gather in the hall, to catch up on news, maybe play some music and have a singalong.

American Tea

On Saturday evening we will be holding an ‘American Tea’ starting around 5pm. Please bring a plate of your favourite food to share with the group.

Ceilidh

Our usual ceilidh will be held on Saturday evening, starting at 19:30 in the schoolhall on site.

This is an informal folk dance evening, interspersed with song, poetry or music. You can bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee is provided in the interval.
