More Rain

Today is very strange as we are not able to take any more campers today due to the WEATHER. The fields are claggy, spongy from the rain. However John has bought some special fabric after consulting the highways authority and had about 20 ton of crushed stone delivered from the quarry. Jerry, the builder, and his teamhave been working most of the day spreading this over the entrance to the Family Field and the top track.
Tom always said 'you wait 'til you get a wet August' fingers crossed!!
Tomorrow is the start of Carnival Week in Swanage.

Still wet on the fields

Friday July 27th 2007
It is still very soggy and we are limiting admissions at present.

Surving the Deluge

We have some very wet weather , like so many places, and send our best wishes to those in the flooded areas that are having to put uo with so much discomfort.
Here, at Tom's Field, we still have many stalwart campers who are making the most of this dismal weather. We are lucky being high and draining off quite quickly but we still have had to monitor movements of vehicles and have seen a colourful display of wellingtons. We have reccommended some very local attractions to fill in a wet hour or so including the lvely little museum in Langton Matravers and the Putlake Adventure Farm both very close by.

A Wet August?

We hope it isn't going to be a wet August! Tom always said ' you waqit until you have a wet August'
However even though the weather has been awful through out the country and here in Dorset, there have still been lots of hardy campers. Today was a lovely day, sometimes Purbeck has a little micro climate so let us keep ouf fingers crossed.
