Description New Year Meet

Only 5 miles east of Rushden and 12 miles north of Bedford.
This is a quiet and unspoiled village in Bedfordshire near the borders with Northamptonshire, and Cambridgeshire.
The site is on grass area around the village hall, that is secluded and slightly sloping with a Children playground area in the top end of the site.
Large car park for hard standing camping, down one side of the site.
The village is set in lovely countryside with its own castle mound, a long distance footpath-passing close by.
Meet Details Arrival day on the 30th will be spent setting up the hall, feeding, chat and laughter.

New Years Eve day is a please-yourself day and the evening begins at 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm with mulled wine. A hot main course with vegetables is followed by cold puddings. This is a black tie and posh frock evening with dancing to our band & callers. The evening ends with a last dance about 00.20 am.

New Years Day is similar to the previous day with a hot evening meal followed by a warm pudding before the evening of dance and entertainment from about 7.30 pm.
