I now have a barman who can cover for me & allow me to have some time off at last. I know it's early days but it looks like I'll be able to do next years :)
What did people do camping wise? Was it bivvy's or tents on a separate camping field?
Anybody? :(

We stay on the fishery bedding down in bivvies or tents.
Staff members get to bunk up in my caravan lol.

Some book into the hotels nearby and leave their tackle on site but they tend to be pensioners with lots of money :D

It has been known for members to bring their carers :D

The fishery is locked at night time and in all the years Ive known of there have been no tackle thefts.
If someone was daft enough to try they may well become a statistic on the missing persons list.

I want to make it, is there room in the masters caravan for a slim staff member? I have not got a bivvy and being a poor pensioner cannot afford B & B!!!!

You can park next to your tent so unless you are a REALLY heavy sleeper your vehicle and tackle will be safe.
