Rectory Farm Bosham THS 10th August -
Another successful THS was held at Rectory Farm Bosham West Sussex again this year. Although the meet opened on what must have been the wettest day in August, this did not stop the campers arriving throughout the day. I booked everyone in, as George, Jen and Dave directed campers to their pitches.
The weather was very changeable throughout the THS but it did not deter campers coming. Over the 28 days we had 555 unit nights camped, with 236 Adults, 22 children, 1 cat and many dogs in attendance. There were a total of 46 Caravans, 73 Motor Homes, 1 Trailer Tent and 6 Tents, one of which came with a boat. These statistics show just how popular Motor Home camping is becoming.
Throughout the following weeks we had many campers returning to camp with us again this year. We made many new friends with folks who camped with us for the first time. Lots of them said they would love to come again another year. We have found most members like this site because it has so many advantages including, just a short walk to Bosham and the local pubs & restaurants, ideal for the local buses and trains and the terrain is also flat, perfect for walking & cycling.
The Campers came from 34 different DA’s and Regions. The majority were from Surrey DA with 23 units, many of which have never camped at one of our other DA meets. We informed them of our different weekend meets our DA runs and handed them copies of our Regions Sites Books. The furthest travelled campers came from as far afield as Glasgow, Liverpool, South Lincolnshire, Dyfed, Devon, Derbyshire, Yorkshire and Lindum. I had to ask whereabouts it was -
George and I very much enjoy running this meet, you get to meet so many different people and we have made some really good friends over the years.

It is with great sadness we report the passing of Kevin Rose on Christmas Eve. Monday 24th December 2018. He was diagnosed with cancer just a few months before. Our condolences go to Kathy and all of Kevin’s extended family at their loss. Kevin was a passed member of the Surrey DA and served on the committee as Hon. Treasurer for a number of years.
Kevin’s funeral was at Woking Crematorium, 24th January 2019. The Chapel was bursting at the seams with the numbers of family and friends who wanted to say their last goodbyes to Kevin. A large number of Camping Club, Surrey DA members, past and present, made up the congregation. He will be sadly missed by all those who had the good fortune to know him.
