Stewards are urgently required for the following meets planned:
Sunnyside Farm 27th-30th April
THS Darley Dale 25th May – 3rd June
If you are interested in stewarding a Meet or Temporary Holiday Site and planning to attend one anyway, why don’t you volunteer to steward and get your sites fees paid by the club? If you steward 3 or more meets you’ll also get a free ticket to Rewind or Bonfire night.
It’s not a huge ask, the committee have done the hard work planning and leading activities, booking the meet and making sure everything is in place. We need your help to take money on arrival, direct to the facilities and show people where to pitch.
If you have any questions, or can volunteer, please contact Ted Walters on 01773 856101 or any other member of the committee.
Remember without stewards we don’t have meets!
Due to poor ground conditions as a result of the recent weather, Derbyshire DA are sorry to announce that the Hayes Farm meet is cancelled next weekend.
Don’t worry, if you wait another week, we have a bigger and better music event (REWIND) at the Ukrainian Centre you can attend. We hope to see you all there!

A newer version of the sites list for 2018 has been created. Changes highlighted in Yellow. The Regional Meet (AGM) is on May 11th-13th 2018. Derbyshire DA has therefore cancelled Hollington End Farm (Thorpe) to avoid clashing with the Regional Meet (AGM).
Instead on May 18th-20th 2018, we have managed to secure Peak View Caravan Park near Wirksworth.
Cloverfields, Kniveton (13th-16th July 2018) our 3 night meet has been chosen as the venue for our Birthday Meet as well as the DA’s Highland Games!
Don’t forget to get this one in your diary for 2018. It’s going to be fun for all the family.
On March 23rd-25th at the Ukrainian Centre, Weston-on-Trent, Derbyshire DA will host its Annual General Meeting where all members are welcome to attend (details available here).
The committee is made up of volunteers. This year the committee is looking for 2 or more volunteers to join the committee. If you are interested in finding out more or would like to get involved, please contact our secretary via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Years Eve Photos are now available in an album on the DA’s Facebook page. You can also add any that you have there. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1593269350719394&type=3
