Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.uk Address Editor, VW Camper & Commercial, Jazz Publishing The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJ www.volkswagencamper.co.uk This month’s Welcome page image is a winter VW picture from the fifties; which seems appropriate given it’s snowing heavily and absolutely freezing outside as I write this. Yesterday we fired up the Cali and braved the cold and ventured out on the hills – coming back to a warm bus (we had put the heater on timer to kick in) was such luxury! The drive home was a bit scary however, as the Beast from the East arrived in full force and there’s no way I am venturing outside today even if I could, as my road is impassable. But hopefully by the time you read this the bitter cold and snow will be…

family fun here we come!

He grew up going away for the annual summer holiday to Devon, with his family in their Bay Window camper and it seemed only appropriate that he did the same thing for his young family, with wife Elaine and their first child due imminently! Incidentally, Elaine also had fond memories of her childhood holidays in Devon and very much favoured the idea of future camping holidays. Dean’s father David used to point out Splitscreen campervans and would assert that they were the ones to have. “That sentiment really stuck in my mind as I was growing up,” he remembers. “What better way than to go down the campervan route with my family.” A great many years later, in 2015 to be precise, Dean and Elaine were fortunately in a financial…

upcoming shows

Stanford Hall This year’s event will mark the 42nd anniversary of the Classic Volkswagen meeting, that’s come to be known simply as ‘Stanford Hall’. Shows don’t clock up that number unless they are doing something right. Since the first show way back in 1976 the emphasis has always been on putting on a great display of classic unmodified Volkswagens of all types, whether air-cooled or water-cooled. And not only that, the show has always aimed to give great value for money, whether it’s in the entry prices or the fees for the trade stands. Following the popular inclusion of camping for the last few years, the Stanford Hall Estate Office is offering the same facilities again, with overnight camping available on an adjacent site (as last year, the Monument Field) on both…

spike’s ‘b spoke’ bus

Sat in a Camper by the shores of Ennerdale, the Lake District’s remotest and surely one of its most beautiful stretches of water, what could be more pleasant! That’s what the owner for the past twenty years of the one-time Devon Moonraker you see before you, thinks too. And with retirement beckoning, although as a fire-fighter Spike Worsley isn’t at the old codger stage yet, he’s set up a business offering bespoke excursions amidst the Lakes and beyond, conveying the fortunate either in Dinky (that’s the Camper’s name, after Dinky Doughnuts and inherited from the previous owner) or, if the going gets really rough, in his Land Rover Defender. Oh, and he’s in the wedding market too … blushing Camper brides take note. Spike is Dinky’s third owner and, despite a…
