    CCS Annual UK Gathering - Newark

    9 - 12 June 2011

    You are welcome to joins us for the annual gathering at
    Lakes, Newark, Nottinghamshire.


    Collectors of stoves, pressure lamps & blowlamps
    are all welcome.

    Please bring along some of your collection for

    Originally a weekend event, many people now arrive
    early. The field is booked from the Wednesday at our special
    rate. Please come along even if it's for the Saturday night.

    No need to book but if possible drop me an
    to let me know you're coming so I have a rough idea of numbers.

    Cost is £6.50 per night per tent, caravan or campervan. Extra
    tents & gazebo's housing displays are free.


    We look forward to seeing you

    More info: DO NOT BOOK IN at
    reception. Please just pop in to reception & tell them
    you are attending the Classic Camp Stove's rally or the
    'lamp & stove rally' & they will likely point you in the
    right direction. I will collect the pitch fees during
    the event.
    A key-card for the main gate barrier is
    available for a £5 deposit. If you are arriving after
    6pm please park up & walk around to the rally field & borrow
    someone's card to gain access. If the warden is still
    about & sees you she may let you in herself but please don't
    disturb her otherwise. Alternatively, from Thursday give me a
    ring on the mobile & I will let you in. Email me for
    tel. number. There is a height restriction barrier which is closed around 8pm, preventing high vans or caravans entering or leaving the site. If it is closed you will need to park up until the following morning. It may be possible to come to some arrangement with the warden so if this is an issue give the site a ring. Normal vehicles are not affected.
    The normal rate for the site is £15-17
    per night for 2 people with a car. Our discount rally
    rate of £6.50 per night per tent, caravan or campervan does
    not include use of the main toilet & shower block. We
    do have access to the basic mens & womens 'Anglers Toilet'
    on the site which is just toilet & sink. If you wish
    to use the showers in the main block by reception there is a
    fee to pay (£1 I think). The shower
    block uses a numerical key entry system. In the past
    some people have paid their fee & passed the number around.
    This has upset the site manager & as a result you may find
    they open the door for you rather than giving you the code.
    If we are trusted again this year please respect the system
    & pay the fee otherwise it may be difficult to secure the
    venue or goodwill in future years.
    We are also asked to keep dogs on leads &
    not allow them to foul the rally field - obviously accidents
    do happen in which case you are respectfully asked to clean
    up after your dog. The site provide a dog walk area.
    There is fishing available on site but it
    needs to be booked in advance.
    There are no hookups on the rally field
