    Would anyone be up for a midlands meet on a saturday/Sunday morning? Somewhere like chasewater or something, can bring the dogs and kids, have a breakfast and put faces to names?

    Try and do somewhere that's local for the majority, I don't mind travelling a wee bit

    I'm buying a house in Shropshire in December. Only to use at weekends and during the holidays.

    So will be very keen after Christmas if you manage to keep it going!

    I tried to do similar in Wiltshire. But there wasn't much interest. I emailed a pub that has Land to see whether we could camp but didn't even hear back from them! I think it's like all these things. You need to get it off the ground and word of mouth will do the rest.

    Facebook's probably the best bet now but I'm not on it and never will be! My wife works night shifts most weekends on the bank at the hospital so I'm at a bit of a loose end with the kids most weekends.
    I can stand around talking about landys for ages as well it's really sad :p

    @1988smithy @Pillar

    Thanks gents, Adrian flux were a bit steep at £570 and the NFU were even worse at £750. My camper and normal car were always around £200.

    @Land_girl @90jc this would be a massive trek for an hour or 2 chat and a brekkie surely?? More than welcome though if you don't mind the travel!

    @Big Monkey @dag019 warwickshires a fine area, I'd have no issue coming that way for a day out ;)

    Maybe half dozen meet up first and decide which way to take it in terms of a regular spot or move round every few weeks depending on who's available and if it's a bit if a day or just an hour's chat and **** take :p

    Ironbridge or Stourport on Severn could work, Leamington is a nice town. Hollybush garden centre in willenhall has got a big car park and play area for kids

    Cannock chase, bit dear for parking but good surroundings for landys! Gets busy

    Chasewater as mentioned, charge for parking now but it's cheap. Also gets busy but plenty of spaces and could make it early doors

    Any other suggestions?

    I'm on shift pattern so I couldn't do every weekend but can do odd weekends or the odd Saturday or Sundays! I'm Tamworth based so all of the above are in reasonable travel time for me!
