"non-smiling English music....................maudlin unaccompanied dirges"

Sounds right up my street! What a pity it's so far away and over the Easter weekend.

Latest news from Leon Gierke, the landlord at The Sportsmans Arms Inn.

The new gate for the camp field is in now, so although the entrance way will be as before, the exit will be via the new gate, situated downhill & onto the road.

This should alleviate the difficulties experienced last year in getting vehicles & caravans off the site.

Additionally, extra amounts of hardcore are being laid down to further aid traction.

As Easter's earlier this year, it coincides with the lambing season. Consequently, we may not have full use of the barn.

However, Leon tells me he has a plan to accommodate this contingency.

From Leon Gierke, landlord of Sportsmans Arms:

 After 5 months of snow and rain the field doesn't look great!

 I've kept animals off it but the relentless weather has taken its toll!

 There is stone down on the entrances and people with 4x4s and tents are free to use the fields.

 At the moment I wouldn't advise anyone without a 4x4 or anyone with a heavy caravan to enter the field unless its dry for a good couple of days leading up to arrival.

 I say we sensibly pack the car park, the drive in front of the pub and use the layby 200 meters past the pub (many can fit there).

 I'm happy to open the field and also help tow caravans etc on and off the field if people want to.

 Be assured I've tried everything to get the field accessible and will continue to do so. Tonight I will be looking for temporary field mats to use so i will get back to you about that.

 A reminder to everyone coming to pack in as much as possible would be great.

 On a positive note......I've loads of really good cask ales in!
