You have to look up to the North West

News

The latest news from the North West Region and from Sections and DA’s within the region.

The North West Region THS at Langholm is looking for Stewards

The stewards at the North West Region THS at Langholm on the Scottish border wish to finish. This meet is run  every July.

If you know of anyone who may wish to start stewarding this meet we would be very grateful if you could reply to the Region’s secretary. It would be an advantage if the prospective stewards could go to the meet this year and assist with a view to taking over next year. The meet runs from 21st to 30th July.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Brenda Clarkson,

North West Region Secretary

Truma Gas BBQ point recall

Truma recalls selected gas barbecue points

During the course of its quality assurance Truma has established that there may be leaks in the Truma gas outdoor socket and two gas removal valves.

This only affects products with a yellow handle cap and the following codes below:
01.2016
02.2016
03.2016
04.2016
05.2016
06.2016
07.2016
08.2016
09.2016
10.2016
11.2016
12.2016
01.2017
This can cause gas to leak uncontrollably from the affected products. In unfavourable circumstances this can lead to gas deflagration and injuries. Truma has not heard of such a case yet.
The probability that campers will encounter this fault is very low; nevertheless Truma advises the following precautions:
Ensure that the gas system is immediately turned off. To do this, close the cylinders and/or the gas tank or the external gas supply. If the external gas socket is connected to a separate shut-off valve (e.g. on the so-called valve block), you only need to close this shut-off valve.
If there is an awning, ensure good ventilation.
Check the code below the yellow handle cap. To do this, you may have to turn the ring to read the code. Ensure that there are no ignition sources nearby during the inspection.
If your product has a code between …01.2016… and …01.2017…, please contact your dealer, a Truma Service Partner or the Truma Service Centre for a free replacement. The products may only be replaced by trained personnel; this process does not take very long. Do not use the gas system again or re-open the separate shut-off valve (e.g. on the so-called valve block) until the parts have been replaced!
If your product has a different code than those in the table above, the gas system is safe to use again.
If you have any questions, please email productsafety@trumauk.com or call 0800 038 8910

Lancs & Ches at Marbury Country Park Full

LCDA meet at Marbury Country Park 10th March 2017 is now full. Please do not turn up without first contacting Jo Bright through the LCDA website or webmaster_lcda@hotmail.com

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Barbara Sanders

Sadly Barbara Sanders passed away yesterday after an illness.
Barbara had been a NWR Council member and wife of a NWR Chairman Pete Sanders who also passed away a few years ago.
They retired from Bolton and moved to Anglesey – opening up a thriving 5 van site at Holy Head, meeting many members on their way to Ireland. NWR Condolances go out to Barbara’s son and daughter

Lancs & Ches at Marbury – Important news

I don’t normally ask this but could you give me an idea if you are thinking about joining us at Marbury Coutry Park 10 March 2017. We are limited to 20 units and I really dont want to disappoint anyone if we are full. It’s too late for deposits etc but if you could let me know asap I can keep a tally.

Looking forward to seeing you then. Nice walk around the park and down to the Anderton Boat lift planned, obviously with a pub 1/2 way. It would be rude not too.
