    I'm soo exited it's untrue.
    Pop-up tents are only £20 at Argos now too.
    I'm getting one next week so if anyone else wants one let me know cause I can get an extra 10% off them.

    What do we do about food ect? Are there like take-aways near the camping place or something??
    Never been before so I've no idea what to expect.

    as regards to food..Jim has a camping stove which we will most likely be bringing along, but like last time get a bbq. I might go to tescos the night before...just want to be more prepared this time.

    Definitely agree with lou on this one! Smile

    Woo Tom's mini bar heheh

    i just googled chichester to crystal palace park and it gave me this route which looks much more interesting

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=crystal+palace+park&fb=1&gl=uk&hq=crystal+palace+park&hnear=England,+Sutton&cid=0,0,9058993176761390496&ei=9T-tS7_XG6b60wTzxdSWDg&sa=X&oi=local_result&ct=image&resnum=1&ved=0CAcQnwIwAA

    up through billingshurst instead of the boring a3, plus that drive through london from the a3 was horrid last year
