    The plan

    Friday night's communal supper is curry if you want to join in. Just bring something already cooked to throw on the table :)

    We are having the Illuminations Convoy on Saturday night from 7pm-ish.
    We will meet up with our non-camping friends then grab a chippy tea to eat in a carpark. Then line up for the convoy :) :) Afterwards, it's party back at the campsite!


    Don't know what you want to do on Saturday during the day.
    For those who haven't been to Blackpool before, it has loads of things to do. Just a few suggestions!
    No need to decide now and no need to organise...it's a do-what-you-like-day ;)

    The campsite is 10 miles from Blackpool and 8 miles from Lytham St Anne's (= less brassy than Blackpool)

    Touristy stuff
