Derbyshire DA unfortunately have to announce that the following meets are cancelled:
- Tonge Station – due to the landowner cancelling all meets held at his venue until Spring next year, we’ve had to cancel our Tonge Station meet.
- Netherseal Sport and Social Club – due to a lack of stewards to run the meet.
We apologise for any inconvenience. Where we have cancelled due to a shortage of stewards, NO STEWARDS = NO MEET.
Kingsbury Water Park
Derbyshire DA is pleased to announce that a new meet has been added for 2018 at Kingsbury Water Park, Camping and Caravanning Club site.
The dates are Friday 16th until Sunday 18th November 2018. The pitches are hardstanding and electricity is included (we’ll need it in Nov for heating :-). The price will be £12 per unit per night.
Spaces are limited to 30 pitches, so booking will be available soon to reserve your pitch. To reserve your space you will need to pay the first night upfront as a deposit (£12). Click here to download the booking form.
Kingsbury Water is great for nice walks, bike rides, fishing, children’s play area, water sports and a miniature railway (subject to weather and seasonal restrictions).
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!
There will be lots of games and plenty of fun for all the family. Seeing as its the highland games, don’t forget to bring your kilts!
Don’t forget to get this one in your diary for 2018.
Pat Gordon was presented flowers and a long service award at the Derbyshire DA 62nd AGM. The committee and members would like to express their thanks for all her hard work and long service of 30 years on committee, she has held numerous posts including chairman and has been the site secretary for many years.
We wish her all the best and hope to see her camping on the field with us soon.

A newer version of the sites list for 2018 has been created.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.
Stewards are urgently required for the following meets planned:
Darley Dale THS 2nd week – Aug 15th to 22nd
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!
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.
