During in February the NEC in Birmingham held a touring and camping event which Haven was lucky enough to have a stand at, meaning we packed our over night bags, balloons and prizes and headed west to Birmingham to spread the Haven love. At Haven we have touring facilities on 22 of our parks, with five different pitches to choose from, all in beautiful coastal locations.
We had many competitions and activities running throughout the week – including a free tombola, guess how many sweets are in the jar, colouring your favorite characters, word searches and some comfy deck chairs from Mum and Dad! We had so many entries to our competitions – Rory found it very hard to choose the winners! However after much deliberation, Rory managed to chose his three favorite winners of the colouring competitions below. All winners are in the process of being contacted but if you notice your picture let us know in the comments below- let everyone know who the amazing Artists are!
The winners of the ‘Guess how many sweeties in the Jar’ certainly have a skill in counting, with some of the winners getting it spot on! They won the whole jar of sweets (sorry Mum!), as well as cuddle and picture with Rory. The winner of the word search competition received a huge Anxious Teddy, while winners of the Tombola had the choice of many, many different toys and merchandise.
As well as competitions and prizes, we had face painting at our Camping and Touring stand and Bird’s of Prey at our Caravan Sales stand.This included am eagle called Boris, an owl called Frodo and two lovely little ferrets. Gauntlet Birds of Prey regularly visit our parks throughout the summer teaching us all about these wonderful birds, including prey, habitat and how we can help them.Meanwhile mum could have a little taster of a pamper session with Gina, one of our beauty therapists from Devon Cliffs.
During the raffle and throughout the day it was amazing to see so manyfaces, including happy campers that had already been to Haven, as well as families who are looking forward to their Haven Holiday this year! After all the fun we’ve had this year we’re counting down the days until next February! SAVE THE DATE: Next year’s Caravan & Camping Show will take place from 17-22 February 2015.
We’d like to say a massive thank-you to the NEC for having us, a massive thank-you to everyone who came to see you us and a massive thank-you to everyone who entered the competitions and got involved! (We’d also like to say thank-you to whoever rescued our many balloons that escaped to the sky … sorry!)
