Easter Meet & AGM CANCELLED !!


CANCELLED due to the soft and Wet ground.

The Village Hall Committee will not let us use the field because they are worried about potential damage we may cause. Car park use only. (Which obviously is not an option)

So it is very regrettable that we are having to Cancel the Meet as it is always a great event for us, but Easter is the earliest date this year and the weather has beaten us.

However the wsda AGM must still go ahead on Saturday Morning at 11am and I ask that as many wsda members as possible spare us an hour of your time to support your DA .

We can not continue if there are not the required number of members at the agm meeting.

May be an image of text that says 'Sorry, THIS EVENT IS CANCELED'

Lancing College THS 2023

A look back at our THS 2023

One of our busiest year’s ever and to think in 1985 it was said that the meet would’nt last. This years attendees included, 426 Adults & 33 children staying in a selection of 91 Caravans,124 Motorhomes, 7 Tents, & 3 Trailer Tents.

We welcomed visitors from all over the country on annual holiday, visiting relations and friends or touring around. It was great to see everyone from as far north as Durham & Teeside. To the west from Gloucester & Liverpool and as far south from Portugal.

Over the past few years we have included a Charity Theme to the THS collecting for local Sussex Charities each year West Sussex DA can be very proud to have collected thousands of pounds.

This year we were supporting the ‘Sussex Search and Rescue, a local group of volunteers who give of their time looking for missing people. A wonderful total of Two Thousand,Four Hundred and Fifty Pounds was collected during the Meet which has already been forwarded to their HQ.

The money is raised at different social events which include ‘The Great Lancing Bake Off’ with campers baking cakes in their vans for the competition and after being judged, donating their creations to the Tea & Cake afternoon.

The cake judges this year were the two representatives from SSR, plus Rosie Clack-Walsh, an editor from the Clubs very own Out and About Magazine.

This year’s winner was the lovely Vikki, entering for the first time with her wonderful gin-tonic & lemon cake. Clearly a very popular choice.

Well done to all of the children that also entered their cakes with Erin & Lily judged the best with their Ferrero Rocher chocolate cake.

Of course everyone that takes part are all winners for helping to raise money including and sincerely thanking many local businesses for donating raffle prizes!!

The Charity theme continued the following weekend with our extremely popular ‘Lancing Garden Center’ with a great selection of beautiful plants for sale. Twelve months of hard work nurturing plants and flowers by Tina & Steve for the annual event, along with a Bacon Bap Breakfast, Table Top sale and Tombola .

Campers enjoyed live entertainment each weekend in our Marquee which is always well received along with mid week social evenings including Bingo, quiz’s & other fun items. This year we saw the brilliant sounds of Tom Jones, Suspiciously Elvis, busker and sing along songs with Peter Ridge and the brilliant guitar duo playing & singing anything the audience requested!! Amazing.

If you have never been to the Lancing THS, then maybe consider joining us next year ! We will be pleased to meet you.

Ray Reed RIP

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing away of Ray Reed earlier this week.

Ray was a long time member of some 50 years and a Past Chairman of West Sussex d.a.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his family at this sad time

Many of you will have known Ray and probably camped with him at sometime over the past 50 years as I have.

He was a log term serving member of our committee organising many events and giving freely of his time.

It was a real delight that Ray was still camping with us at Lancing THS only last August for the 60th Anniversary Reunion where he thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends & members.

(I have no further details at this time, but be sure I will advise when I hear more)

RIP. Ray Reed
