Derbyshire DA calls all GHOULS & BOYS, witches, monsters, skeletons, ghosts and more to attend our Halloween meet at Hope Villa, Alstonefield.
This is a meet where there will be prizes for the best fancy dress, a disco, party games, American scare supper (where you bring your own food to share with others – with a scary theme), hall to meet on the Saturday evening and its most definitely children friendly (caravan trick or treat included). As with the nearly all of our meets, its bring your own drinks.
See the photos below from 2016, for an insight into what we have in store for 2017. How much did I hear you say – £6.50 per unit per night!
Alstonfield is the adjacent village to Milldale, that is positioned at the end of the lovely Dovedale valley. Very close to the Manifold Valley cycle track and the Tissington Trail. It also has The George pub who was selected as one of the best 15 country pubs by the Sunday Times last year.
Derbyshire DA are saddened to announce the cancellation of two meets this month:
Hayes Farm (6th-8th Oct), Newstead is cancelled due to poor ground conditions after the recent influx of rain.
Moira Social Club (13th-15th Oct), Swadlincote is cancelled due to the availability of stewards. With no steward 👨✈️, there can’t be a meet. — ￼feeling sad.

Help and advice is available for first timers. There’s really is nothing difficult about it, you’re not expected to know anything complicated and most people steward a meet want to do it again (they find it rewarding).
We look forward to your offers of help.
