I used the Travelodge south of Kettering last year and it was reasonably priced and clean. There is  no in house resturant but they have a Little Chef on site and I recall being given a discount voucher by the receptionist.



Thanks.

Building a new wee boat for Wickie.
Loosely converting  Caldercraft's Motor Fifie into the wartime Dan layer Clan Mackay.











Something a little bit different.

Thanks for the kind comment, Yes it is a Lewis.
I'm really into naval ships, but thought this would be a little bit different.

Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017 Campsite Discount
« Reply #60 on: March 10, 2017, 07:35:27 PM »

Hi everyone


Good news from the Wicksteed Park end of the organising  :-))


As promised we have the park to thank for a £10 off per night discount from Thursday night to Monday morning for those wishing to camp in the park's campsite. To redeem this discount when booking through the reception (phone number tel:01536 512475) please quote that you are with the 'Model Boat Mayhem'and they will automatically discount the money for you. Please don't use the online booking form as these will not work. This discount equates to approx 33-45% discount depending on the night.


We will have the same camping position as last year just inside the entrance to the camp and immediately to the left.


We will have some new tables to play with but it will be for those who can't fit a table(s) in their vehicle.
If you can please bring a table, many thanks ok2


We will also have 30 new chairs for our weary legs for the weekend too.


There will be due to popular demand a tombola stand with some good prizes and a bring and buy table too.


And a newly refurbished shelter and jetty will also be in use.


Hope to see you there! :-))

That is kind to provide tables for those without them or big enough vehicles.

Dogs - Dogs must be kept on leads at all times no matter how small or sweet natured.
           Please clean up your dog’s mess after you – it is a serious public health hazard.
        Dogs are not allowed in the children’s play areas. Please observe the signs.
