The Camping and Caravan Club, Central Counties Region.
What an amazing event was held on a farm in Kineton, Warwickshire last weekend. The Central Counties Region hosted a 1940's weekend. We had arrived the weekend before to help with the working party. Over that weekend the camping field we were all staying in was marked out and an arena was also marked out. One of the Barns was transformed with a stage and a Bar being added.
When we arrived this weekend, there was bunting hanging from the roof of the barn. Everywhere was looking splendid and ready for a great weekend.
|On the Thursday evening the entertainment was organised by the committee. What a fantastic evening we had. Music was played from the 1940's and the words were projected onto a screen so we could all join in. We were given a little plastic bag as we went into the barn, it contained the 'props' for the songs. When we sang 'Wish me luck as I wave goodbye' we had a piece hankie to wave. We had some washing to hang out etc. So much preparation had been done. All these 'props' were made by the Working Party the weekend before.
|The Friday evening brought us a different kind of entertainment. We had a female vocalist who kept us entertained. She had so much energy dancing and singing all night.
On Saturday we all enjoyed the Mardi-Gras Parade. So much thought went into the costumes, they were splendid. There were entries from most of the Counties that go to make up the Central Region.
Well done to everyone.
|And after the Parade it was down to the serious business of enjoying a 'Street Party BBQ'
|The entertainment on Saturday evening rounded of a brilliant day. We all dressed up in 1940's style and were entertained by a Father and Daughter act. They sang and danced the material was mostly from the 1940'sI would defiantly score them 12 out of 10. Very well done.
|On Sunday, after a 'Church Service' run by the Campers we mover on to the Sports Day activities. This brought lots of laughter from both the participants and the crowd as everyone had fun.
|And the Volleyball Final.
|And finally the Awards giving. Everyone did so well it was a shame to choose winners. In my eyes everyone was a winner.
