    This will be our 10th year as a year round camping venue. I hold these meets every two months, normally over the last weekend where possible so a total of just six meets a year.

    However, I have noticed a gradual decline in attendance not just here at North Wood but at other midland venues too, some of which have ceased meets altogether. Looking at other meets around the UK on BCUK I suspect this issue is not confined solely to the West Midlands.

    This situation was apparent at our recent December meet with a very poor turnout, of course there will always be cancellations for various reasons and I can sort of factor a percentage in. However this is not my wood I just run the meets, I am answerable to the farmers that own it who as friends have allowed me to organise these meets that they may make something out of it too, of late they make very little.

    So, having given this a lot of thought and having discussed this with some of the regulars, I am willing to continue with the February meet and possibly the April 'bluebell' meet to see if numbers improve. If they do not I will have to close North Wood down as a venue.

    Everything else is here

    Apologies I can't make the February meet, I'm getting married that weekend. I'd love to come on the April meet though, I've just moved up to the area so it would be good to see some more outdoors people knocking around.

    If you can vouch for them as your guests that’s fine Mike.
