From Paul Catterwell of Kings Lynn Plus:

Hello all

Hard to believe that it is only 129 days to WASH!

An enormous thanks to those who have sent deposits so far, over half the places available have deposits against them (this is even more than at this time last year!)

We have a DJ booked for all 3 nights, 3 bands booked to date and the infamous WASH quiz, so plenty to keep all entertained.

Don’t forget to book as soon as, particularly if you would like a lodge or chalet, as these are going very quickly.  Mind you, if you are too late the caravans are pretty impressive too and far superior to anything Manor Park had on it’s hire fleet.

See you soon

WASH Waffle: May / June 2017

From Paul Catterwell of Kings Lynn Plus:

Hello all

Well, the new venue has certainly fired the imagination of Plussers. Already we are up on those having booked compared to even last year, and all the groups have maintained or increased their numbers.

Just a quick reminder for those who may be a little worried of the price hike, it is understandable but we have decided to subsidise it and have done our level best to get the best deal possible. This is what you will get that you did not get at Manor Park.

Caravans are only £7.00 more than in our last year at Searles in 2010
There is only gold standard caravans, all of which have central heating and double glazing.
All chalets and lodges have a hot tub and balconies
No parking on muddy fields
Real ales on tap
Being an all year round park, we are not ‘treated’ to whats left over!
Indoor heated swimming pool and sauna
Indoor gymnasium
Snooker room
Tennis court
Sky Sport on all weekend
Easy reach of Cromer, Sherringham, The North Norfolk Railway and Norwich

We hope this encourages you to come, we are really excited about this new chapter and want to share it with you.

See you soon

New Month, New Venue

The WASH Committee is delighted to announce that WASH 2017 is moving to a stunning new location at Woodland Holiday Park in Trimmingham, just east of Cromer in North Norfolk.  The nearest train station is Cromer, which is 4 miles away.

 The accommodation and facilities are even better than those offered when we were at Searles.  The cost is only £85 per person (this is only £9 more per person than in our last year at Searles 7 years ago!)

 So what can you look forward to this year.

  • Stunning views in this woodland park
  • All accommodation has free WiFi
  • All accommodation is double glazed and centrally heated
  • The complex has a free indoor heated swimming pool and sauna (open daily from 7am to 9pm)
  • The complex has a free fully equipped gym
  • Sky Sports
  • IPA and guest ales
  • Sunday carvery, breakfast and Friday and Saturday buffet menus
  • Free table tennis, tennis court, snooker room and bike hire

Because the park is open all year we are not getting whats left as far as food and drink is concerned

 If you would like to take a look for yourselves, please go to:

 We have put a huge amount of time and effort into ensuring WASH carries on, all we need now is YOU!

WASH Waffle: April 2017

From Paul Catterwell of Kings Lynn Plus:

Hello fellow Plussers

Although we are not in a position to confirm the date we are confident WASH 2017 will be on 3rd to 6th November.  DO NOT CANCEL HOLIDAY DATES BOOKED, AND IF YOU HAVE NOT BOOKED THE WEEKEND OFF PLEASE DO SO ASAP!

We appreciate that things are running behind the usual schedule, but this was due to circumstances beyond our control, and we have been working hard behind the scenes, I promise!

Hope you all have a great Easter holiday and will let you know as soon as we know.
