Chairman’s Page

Hi, I’m Les French and I‘m the Chairman of Liverpool and South West Lancs DA.
 
I’ve been a member of the Club and DA for over 65 years, amazing really as I am only 47!
Seriously though, the DA and Club has always been a major part of my life, and it’s where my wife Tracey, your DA Secretary, and I met and married.
 
We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years with the emphasis moving from simple countryside sites with little or no social activities, to the present, where a lot of nomadic campers choose where to go by what is laid on. With this in mind, our committee are ever looking for the kind of meets and activities members now want.
 
We offer something for everyone during the season, whether it’s Social, Sporty or just good old fashioned Camping in the Country, just check out our fixtures either here or on our Facebook page, and especially the revitalised ‘New Year’s Meet’ at Holmswood, which is already nearly full, so get your interest in early through Pete Rigby.
 
Support the North West Regional Meet at Arley Hall in May where LSWLDA are very heavily involved, Tracey as Regional Chairman and DA members organising some the sports and the ‘Real Ale Bar’. We have a DA area for us, so join in the fun.
 
We are always on the lookout for new helpers and even fresh faces on the Committee, so share a bit of your time to help if you can, families with children being especially welcomed by our new Youth Leaders, Tom and Louise Dickinson.
 
Remember, we are not called ‘The Sociable DA’ for nothing, you camp with us, your’e one of us.
We have a very BIG celebration coming up in two years time, our 100th BIRTHDAY in 2021. Plans are already made and the site is booked so keep watching this website and join our Facebook page for complete and upto the minute information and news.
 
Liverpool and South West Lancs DA, one of the original 7 DAs  and one of the oldest and best in the Club, see you on the field.
 
Les French
