Bit of info for the visitors.... I posted on another thread about speed limits in the Borders regions - all 30MPH areas gone down to 20MPH?
Changing a bit from [officially] next month .... they are changing some of the 20MPH limits back to 30MPH in Kelso in order to improve safety for people on bikes and walking :unsure:

Following on from the Edinburgh Meet at The Drum we are going to Kelso in the Scottish Borders. The Borders Events Centre is just over the bridge from the town with its bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.

Camp fee £14 per unit per night. Limited Hookups at £4 per night are available. If you need a hook up for health reasons please pm me.

The Covid rules will be those applying in Scotland at the time of the meet and those on the thread Campsite COVID safety rules. If allowed the site has excellent toilets and showers.

How To Book

Please reply to this thread stating:
  1. How many nights you would like to attend (£14 per vehicle per night)
  2. What day you will be arriving on
How To Pay

Please put the exact payment in a sealed envelope then write your username, vehicle registration number and the payment amount on the envelope. This will be collected on arrival by PHIL so please have it ready.

IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND PLEASE LET ME KNOW ON THIS THREAD ONLY

DO NOT USE POSTCODE ON YOUR SAT NAV. It takes you to a different Springwood park where it is difficult to turn round.

The Borders Events Centre (also known as the Border Union Showground) is located just a short walk from the picturesque town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Its cobbled streets and historic buildings are popular with visitors and tourists.
From the site, you can see the outline of the town including Kelso Abbey, Floors Castle and the local point-to-point course. The world famous junction pool on the River Tweed leads visitors from the BEC over the ‘Old Bridge’ and in to the town with its hotels, pubs, restaurants and shops.
The venue is just an hours drive from Edinburgh and 90 minutes from Newcastle and Carlisle making it extremely accessible for the whole of Scotland and Northern England.
40 acres of well maintained parkland which are perfect for a whole range of outdoor events. We regularly welcome vehicle rallies, agricultural sales, caravan clubs and are well suited to fairs, festivals and sporting events.
With the grounds come a number of caravan and camping facilities including 24 hook-ups, a shower and loo block (male, female and disabled) as well as disposal services
Pauline & Ray in motorhome, from Drum until Saturday am please

The showground is large. We will be able to have the space we require. Not a problem if you want to book and then need to cancel that would be OK.
