Hilfield Families Camp – CANCELLED owing to the weather

It is with very great regret that the decision has been taken to cancel this year’s camp arranged for 28th July to 5th August – owing to the weather. Our fields are somewhat saturated with water and even if it remains dry from now until the start of the camp (there’s the predicted possibility of a change in the weather as we write this) it’s still going to be very muddy. We’ve been looking forward to welcoming all our you who have booked to come and are as disappointed as you about this. Please keep in touch and book early for the camp in 2013!
