In accordance with a Camping And Caravanning Club directive and as detailed in the February editions of the Club Magazine and Out & About the Derbyshire District Association 2021 AGM will now be held virtually.
It will take place on the same day at the same time as previously advertised (Saturday 20-March at 3 PM) using SKYPE as the video meeting platform.
Anyone who would like to participate in the AGM should Email their interest to the Derbyshire DA Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). To enable verification of DA membership and entitlement to vote, please include (as it appears on your membership card) your name and membership number. Or if preferred attach a photo of your card.
All requests to participate are to be received by Saturday 6-March, this will allow time for all submitted details to be sent to the club membership department for verification. Prior to the AGM the Agenda, Previous Minutes & Reports etc… shall be emailed to all participants along with the link to join our “Derbyshire DA 2021 AGM” moderator group on Skype. As well as joining the group this link also gives the option to install Skype at the same time.
The format of the AGM will be the same as normal, anybody wishing to volunteer for committee can still do so at the meeting. A new position on the committee we would like to fill is that of a Site Secretary’s Assistant. This would involve assisting with the planning and booking of sites for our 2022 season.
Derbyshire DA Committee
PLEASE NOTE –
We have a change of site location this weekend 11th-13th September this will now be at Cloverfields Farm, Kniveton, Ashbourne, DE61JF. NOT Peak view as planned.
We will post opening time of site this week nr to the meet. We will have our card machine as a preferred method of payment.
We are also looking for stewards for our meet at Stanley Villa, Biggin 18-20th September, if anyone would like to steward this meet please get in touch with Matt Attewell, many thanks
Further to receiving the latest Green paper (3.16v1) and Risk Assessment from the Camping and Caravanning Club, the committee of Derbyshire DA would like to inform you of some changes to adhere to on our future meets.
Meets will go ahead, with our first one on the 1st August at Osmaston Polo ground.
Booking will NOT be required at any of our meets but we ask that you ring the stewards before you leave to make sure they can accommodate you on that meet (phone number will be published on our Facebook page a couple of days before the meet starts). Please also check our Facebook page for updated information.
We now have a bank/credit card reader that will be up and running on our meets (signal dependant, if there is no signal then we ask at some point you obtain the right amount of cash and take to the steward), where possible please use this method to pay. If paying by cash, please have the following in a clear plastic wallet:
Please be patient if stewards also ask for this information when arriving on site.
On the site, the Elson and water point will be cornered off and only 1 person is allowed in that area at any time, strictly adults only please!
Please be aware that you will need to bring your own PPE, as we will not be able to provide that for all members. Derbyshire DA will provide full PPE to our stewards.
Please follow all signs/site rules visible on site.
Unfortunately there will be no day visitors allowed, no social aspects that we’re used to and although we are allowed to now camp we still need to follow and adhere to the social distancing guidelines.
A laminated copy of the green paper will be displayed at future meets for those who wish to read, if not it is widely available on social media.
Finally, Derbyshire DA would like to say a big thank you to our stewards for coming forward to steward our meets especially with things being different, with this in mind please be respectful to our stewards, they are doing this voluntarily and without them our meets would not be able to held!
Not adhering to any of these new guidelines, risks future meets being cancelled so please be sensible and respectful.
We look forward to seeing lots of members at our up and coming meets and please remember to stay home if you have any of the symptoms.

Hi all, just a quick one to say that our lovely bookings officer (Diane) and treasurer (Amy) would like to be able to finalise our booking for the remaining Camping and Caravanning Club sites this year.
If you’d like to book your place on these sites, please download and complete this form and submit deposit payment via cheque or bank transfer.
Hello all, i’ve added a new feature that allows you to import/sync Derbyshire DA’s events calendar with you phone, tablet, computer etc. It’s really simple to do and something that I found really useful from another DA.
Please have a go and see what you think. If you don’t like it, it’s really easy to remove.
