|Pitch up with Camping and Caravanning Club
President and television presenter, Julia Bradbury, to celebrate National
Camping and Caravanning Week 2014 (Monday, 26 May to Sunday, 1 June).
This year, the Club is celebrating its heritage and has organised a special
nostalgia event at its
Scarborough campsite on Friday, 30 May.
|Holidaymakers staying on-site will be able to enjoy a range
of traditional activities including old-style fairground games, Punch and
Judy shows plus much more!
First female Club President and television presenter, Julia Bradbury, will
be in attendance at the event and available for interview.
There’re also additional events being planned at the Club’s other 109 Club
Sites and 16 Camping in the Forest Sites, which are all located in idyllic
areas across the UK. More information on these events can be found one the
Club’s dedicated website.
And there’s further activity planned to celebrate the industry’s premier
week. As cycle-camping is such a large part of the Club's history, and with
the Tour de France departing from the UK this year, the Club is taking on a
challenge and raising money for Sustrans.
A team of Camping and Caravanning Club cyclists will ride over 420 miles in
six days, in the spirit of founding member and cycle-camper Thomas
Hiram-Holding. To make it even tougher, the team will all be riding in
traditional tweed cycling outfits!
The cyclists will pedal over the finish line at the
Club’s hub-event at Scarborough. More information can be found here:
Robert Louden MBE, Director General at the Club, said: “The ‘Year of the
Bike’ really resonated with the Club due to its ties with our founding
member, Thomas Hiram-Holding. National Camping and Caravanning Week,
which is into its 14th year, is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our
heritage – and the nation’s love for camping, caravanning and the great
“I’m looking forward to attending our NCCW event at Scarborough – it’s
going to be a fantastic day for all involved.”
National Camping and Caravanning Week partners include: Outwell, Vango,
Swift, Elddis and Halfords.
