      Hello All.
      Lorraine and I would like to invite any interested Trikingista to come and visit Cley over August Bank Holiday next year.
      I appreciate its a long way off but we need to book out the Campsite diary well in advance.
      The Campsite diary is booked out for Trikings on 25th,26th & 27th August 2017 . We hope it can be as an enjoyable event as last time in 2014. This does not aim to be “The Annual Triking Get together ” but an informal relaxed attend if you wish or can for part or all of the weekend. Drive outs, BBQ & good conversation.etc part of the fun.. Thanks Mark & Lorraine

                Hi Mark and Lorraine,

                As already mentioned in a direct message, I plan to attend and can imagine that Axel will be very interested too.

                Cheers for now

                    Hello to you both. I had noted your earlier message Paul and planned on discussing b&b etc when we meet up in Holland. It’s great to hear you both plan on visiting Cley next year. We do have a shower and toilet on site ( only one ) Site will only have Trikingista on site over our weekend. Our Address is The Shieling, Cley-next-the-Sea, Holt, Norfolk. NR25 7TX

                      Hi Mark & Lorraine,
                      We’re also interested and have the dates on our calendar. Could you please give us more details of accommodation, etc.? Thanks.
                      Best wishes,
                      David & Avril

                        Hello David and Avril
                        Great that you are interested ! We are hoping to have as much fun as we did at our Get together in 2014. As already mentioned we do not aim to be the “Annual Triking Meeting” but an additional relaxed, informal meet up of like minded people over a few days with food, drink and driving !. We have a 1/2 to 3/4 acre grassed field with a single toilet and shower along with electric hookup points.
                        This is ideally suited to Caravans, Motorhomes, Tents and of course Trikings !
                        North Norfolk being a tourist destination there is lots of B&B, pub accommodation and Hotels locally. I would try an internet search on Cley-next-the-Sea initially for information. I am happy to answer specific enquiries by private message. There is plenty of secure storage for Trikings at the Shieling overnight etc. if B&B is lacking for this ?
                        I hope this helps. Thanks Mark & Lorraine.

                          Hi Mark & Lorraine,
                          Thanks for the info – we’ll take a look and get back to you with questions (which I’m sure we’ll have!).
                          Best wishes,
                          David & Avril

                            Hi Mark & Lorraine,
                            I’m afraid that we’re going to have to cancel. We have been looking for a cruise and found one we liked. Unfortunately our first choice of dates wasn’t available so we picked another one and have paid the deposit and have just realised that we didn’t check our calendars well enough. While there’s no overlap with your gathering itself, we hadn’t yet blocked out the days for travelling to and from you and have just realised that we can’t get to you in time following the cruise holiday. We’d miss two days. Sorry, our mistake. We hope we can meet up with you all another time in the not too distant future.

                            Best wishes,

                            David & Avril

                                Hi All.
                                It seems booking is taking place for next August already in North Norfolk ! Nowhere in North Norfolk is cheap but.
                                Any interested people looking for “Very nice” Bed and Breakfast over the Cley get together could try The Pheasant in Kelling.
                                It is not cheap at £112 per night for single occupancy or £160 per double or twin, B&B. But has secure parking, is very well appointed and friendly. About 2.5 miles from Cley. Obviously the Cley camping field and Shower block are available for all hardier folks
                                link is http://www.pheasanthotelnorfolk.co.uk
                                Any questions then please ask.
                                Mark

                                  Put us down for it please.

                                  We’ll camp if it’s good weather; if not, then an Hotel / B&B should do it.

                                  Thanks.

                                    Can I provisionally book a place too? Car’s just finished and waiting for registration to complete. Hopefully, I’ll have figured out how to drive it by next August!

                                        Happy new year to you all. Cley Campsite get together is now this year ! !
                                        Hopefully all interested Trikingista will still be able to make it. The reason for posting is to advise that people not wanting to sleep under canvas, live locally or own Motorhomes / Caravans etc to get a booking sorted for B&B or hotel over the weekend dates. It may be easier to cancel later if required rather than book suitable accommodation closer to August ? North Norfolk does get busy through the summer ! Our post code is NR25 7TX.
                                        Thanks

                                                    Hi Richard. We can find you a space. Depending on length of your stay dictates your location.

                                                      Hello All.
                                                      Just a reminder. Remember August Bank Holiday weekend get together at Cley Campsite. Hopefully Trikingista that previously expressed an interest can still make it ? I know some people have booked local b&b etc. Would be good to increase on the 9 Trikings that made the 2014 Get together. I’ve found a Gymkhana field for The Green Baron ! Richard and Pat will have Whack the Rat ! What other excitement can we think of ?

                                                        Hi Mark,
                                                        Looking at the posts on this subject, I don’t appear to have expressed my interest. Please accept my apologies and book me onto the camping area.
                                                        I hope the Gymkhana grass will be short, as long grass would give Dick F an unfair advantage ! (Think scythe)
                                                        I also trust that Richard will resist the temptation to settle old scores against the ‘Shropshire 3’

                                                                  I’m just looking at Get together events. I’m thinking of one day organised Run, with rest of weekend having varied options as interest dictates
                                                                  I’m thinking of a Run out to the Norfolk Broads ? ( probably sunday) How about Woodfordes Brewery tour ? , Fairhaven Gardens ? Caister Classic Car collection ? Can’t fit all of this in but what are the most popular choices ?? Your thoughts please.

                                                                            Being a Norfolk resident I’m hoping to drive up in my Triking for at least one of the days if that’s ok. I’ve just sold my camper van so only have a small tent at present but maybe I could stay one night too. Do you have a rough itinerary planned and more importantly a reliable weather forecast as rain is a definite no no ! 🙂

                                                                            Regards

                                                                              It would be excellent to meet you Dave and I hope you can make some of the Get together. A rough itinerary is coming together.
                                                                              Friday 25th is finished off with a Welcome BBQ. Saturday 26th includes Andy’s Gymkhana +/- Holkham Hall visit. Sunday 27th will be a visit to the Broads, finishing with The Caister Car collection near Gt. Yarmouth. There are lots of options, but the aim is for a relaxed weekend with options of things to do. A chance to meet and catch up.
