By placing a booking for such services you are deemed to have accepted these supplemental terms.

1. SERVICE

1.1 Subject to you agreeing to these supplemental terms and completing an application scheme, the Club offers a seasonal and storage booking scheme to recreational campers only.

1.2 If you book these services and are not the owner of the unit, then you will be deemed to be the legal agent of the owner of the unit.

1.3 Your unit is left on the relevant site entirely at your own risk at all times. We are not liable in respect of loss and or damage however caused to the unit or its contents and are not obliged to take any steps whatsoever to protect the unit or its contents.

1.4 Units, as part of any scheme, should be adequately insured and a copy of the appropriate certificate of insurance must be given to the HSM upon arrival at the Site.

2.5 It is advisable to send application forms by recorded delivery (or similar) as the Club cannot take responsibility for any forms delayed by the postal service.

2.6 Please be aware that due to the high volume of applications received it is not always possible to confirm receipt of singular application forms, in addition confirmation of your booking may take longer when bookings first commence.

2.7 Site opening and closing dates for seasonal pitches and storage are published in the Club's annual guide "Your Place in the Country".

2.8 We will charge you full fees for storage pitches at the time you make your booking. For a seasonal pitch, you can either pay in full at the time you make your booking or split the payment into two instalments.

3. CANCELLING A SEASONAL OR STORAGE PITCH

3.1 If you wish to cancel your storage or seasonal pitch please write to us at Greenfields House, Westwood Way, Coventry, CV4 8JH or email us at storage@thefriendlyclub.co.uk.

3.2.2 less than 14 days' notice, or it is cancelled once the season is underway, no refund will be provided.

4. SEASONAL PITCHES

4.1 Seasonal pitches cannot be reserved in advance of the booking. If you have a special request, please make this clear on the application form and it will be included on your booking although we cannot guarantee to meet this. You will be allocated a pitch at the site on arrival.

4.2 The fee for seasonal pitches includes the hire of electric-hook up and the hire of hardstanding.

4.3 Please give the holiday site manager at least 24 hours advance notice each time you are planning to occupy your seasonal pitch. For safety and security reasons, please report to the holiday site manager upon arrival each time you visit.

4.4 The unit may be occupied on Site for recreational purposes only, subject to a maximum of 21 nights for any one visit. An interval of at least 3 nights must elapse before a return visit to the unit situated on the pitch.

4.5 Please inform the holiday site manager prior to removing your unit from a seasonal pitch. It is also important that you advise of your anticipated return date, otherwise your pitch may not be available. If the site is busy, your vacant seasonal pitch may be used in your absence.

4.6 When leaving your unit unoccupied, please ensure that awnings are dismantled, the electric and gas supplies are disconnected and the pitch left tidy.

4.7 Any keys to security locks must be left with the holiday site manager; however neither they nor the Club take responsibility for your unit. Keys will only be used in case of emergencies and will be kept securely.

4.8 If a unit is left on a Club site without permission, i.e. exceeding the period for which the fee was paid, the Club shall be entitled to make such arrangements as it may deem fit for the removal or storage of the unit and charge the owner a commercial rate for the storage. In all cases, the Club will write to the owner to advise them of the above procedure.

4.9 The expense of such removal or storage will be for the owners account and, in the event of the owner failing to pay such an amount within 14 days of it being rendered, the owner is deemed to have authorised the Club to make such further arrangements as it may deem fit to dispose of the unit to reimburse itself for any out of pocket expenses and recover any unpaid fees due.

5. YOUR PITCH AREA

5.1 Personalisation of a seasonal pitch is not permitted. This includes boundary fences, the planting of flower boxes, etc. The storage of any equipment beneath the unit whilst the unit is not occupied is prohibited. The visual aspect of a seasonal pitch should be the same as any other tourer on site and kept as neat and tidy as possible at all times

5.2 Awnings will be permitted and they may be erected on hardstanding (preferred) or grassed areas, but they must be dismantled when the unit is vacated at the end of every visit. Groundsheets should be lifted at regular intervals to maintain the condition of the grass.

5.3 Only one vehicle may be parked on the pitch in conjunction with the use of a unit. Other vehicles may be parked elsewhere on the site, subject to the holiday site managers discretion and availability of space.

6. UNITS IN STORAGE

6.1 Units can be removed from storage with 24hrs notice (48 hours for Tavistock) between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm. Units should be returned no later than 6 pm. If you need to return your unit later than 6 pm, this can only be done up to 8 pm and must be by prior arrangement with the site.

6.2 On some sites we offer an additional towing service, which is subject to staff availability and should be discussed with the holiday site manager in advance to ensure the service can be provided.
