I was referring to your comment about the 'early morning call from the boys in blue'.Why hefty fine if the OP is travelling home by a direct route? Where we lived until recently it was quite common for HGV, MH and caravans to park up overnight on a perimeter road on the estate. It was on the route to Portsmouth and Poole. There were even the boatie community who lived in beat up old vehicles whilst sorting out their beat up narrow boats on the Kennet and Avon canal. The only time the law seemed to get involved were the DVLA tax vigilantes but they were not police.
Might be better for the OP to get an overnight ferry with cabin and then have a day time run home.I was referring to your comment about the 'early morning call from the boys in blue'.
If the police consider a person to have been camping they might issue an on the spot fine.
I'm not sure about rest breaks while transporting the caravan home or if that's what the OP is doing.
That will be good news if sites can open for July. We are booked towards the end if July and then late August. However if things should get back to some form of normality in September then our ability to get away will take a nose dive despite being long retired from gainful labours.Rang today about increasing my booked holiday on the 1/7, to be told CCC have now changed that to 4/7 as that will be the new start , I hope.
Lucky I rang as would have turned up to closedsite.
Dont know if it's specific to Cornwall but the news tonight is saying the "R" number for the whole of the South West has increased, now being at 1, and could possibly have a local lockdownNot sure if it is true, but has the infection rate in Cornwall increased since the lockdown was partially lifted due to thousands of people visiting the area from afar?
The number of infections within the Weston Hospital is thought to have a bearing on the SW figures which are generally very low but sensitive to any new infections. Unlike Germany that publishes daily detailed statistics it’s not possible here to see where the clusters are located and if they are increasing or reducing. But I’m sure our “World beating system” will get to grips with it at some stage.Dont know if it's specific to Cornwall but the news tonight is saying the "R" number for the whole of the South West has increased, now being at 1, and could possibly have a local lockdown
Bear in mind I think they class the SW area covering from Gloucester, Somerset Devon and Cornwall which in my mind is a huge area.
Thats why I havent booked anywhere yet, see what happens.
Whilst we have recently booked two trips out for late July and late August any hope of a quick return to normality is supremely optimistic. Even when (if) the virus abates they after effects will affect life in U.K. and elsewhere for some years to come. Not least the effects on businesses and the undoubted rise in unemployment, especially amongst the young. Health and social care will need re addressing and undoubtedly inflation will rise. Being able to just walk around unfettered by masks or go into shops at will is only the beginning. The uphill climb awaits us. But we’ve been here before and there will be things to enjoy as we move on.Do we have to turn a good thread into doom and gloom ! Lets all try and look on the bright side and hope for a quick return to normality.
Do what we are asked to do, dont take risks and just hope we get through it! And look to the future.
I hope that the Clubs don’t age discriminate based on members details. At present being over 70 I’m not facing any more restrictions than my kids or grandchildren. There’s advice and there’s regulations. I’m heeding both but the only restrictions come from my daughter whose a student MHN and watches me like a hawk.As well as different parts of the UK re-opening campsites at different times, there's also likely to be different advice given to the different age/vulnerability groups - while the over-70s aren't as restricted as the extremely vulnerable (those who received letters) the over-70s are likely to face restrictions longer than those of working age. It's the social distancing requirement that's likely to last longest.
The more people that ignore advice because it's not a regulation/law, the longer the virus threat will last. The UK looks like becoming one of the worst affected countries in the world.I hope that the Clubs don’t age discriminate based on members details.

i hope so toCan't stop myself checking the beach here. (St Clair next to Le Le Lavandou). We would have been here in about a week from now, camp site 100 meters along a path from the beach. Visited most years for last 40 years or so! Know everyone, current owner was just a lad when we first found the site, all nationalities and everyone knows everyone to some degree.

All the summer trip which included Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy and France cancelled but - we have booked a CL for mid July and fingers are crossed.
People have asked what is most missed.
I guess we all have similar answers but on a lighter note I am missing standing at the BBQ most nights, glass of red (rose in the South) , maybe chatting to a neighbour of various nationalities and then hitting the bed well "watered" and instantly asleep.
Hey Ho. - It WILL happen again - won't it!
