Family Tent

After many happy years of camping, we have decided that it is time to part with our family tent. Even though our children said that selling the tent was tantamount to selling the children - they prefer to sleep in their own separate tents these days rather than with parents!

The tent is very robust and would be great for a larger family intending to take regular camping holidays.

It is easy to put up or take down. The only negative is that it is bulky for storage and transport.

We paid not far off £1,000 including 2 extra bedrooms. We would love it to go to a family that would enjoy it and so would accept offers.

It is the Khyam Ridgi-dome Espace Deluxe

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE FAMILY TENT!

COMFORTABLY SLEEP 8 IN 2 LARGE BEDROOMS (4 PEOPLE IN EACH) , AND A LARGE LIVING AREA THAT YOU CAN COMFORTABLY STAND UP IN TOGETHER WITH A LARGE KITCHEN AND EXTENDED PORCH AREA.

ALL BEDROOMS HAVE SEWN IN GROUND SHEETS PLUS A FULL FOOTPRINT GROUND SHEET WHICH IS FITTED UNDER BEDROOMS.

THIS TENT WILL FILL A 10 X 10 METRE PITCH BUT CAN EASILY BE ASSEMBLED QUICKLY BY 2 PEOPLE. THE TENT COMES IN A BAG AND POLES AND PEGS COME IN ANOTHER.

This tent has been looked after, dried after each use and is fully weather proof.

All the interior rooms are detachable to give you more space (if you needed it) and it has two doors so you can choose your entrance/exit according to conditions / neighbours. The center dome is approx 7ft high so no need to crawl around on your hands and knees and with a camping table and chairs in there, there is still room to move around!! This tent is ideal for a larger family.

We also have 2 extra sleeping compartments that can be fitted at the back of the tent.

We are based in Littlehampton, West Sussex(BN17) and unless you can collect, you will need to arrange your own courier - it wont post due to size and weight. I recommend either a small trailer or an estate car if collecting.

David Sets Off For Cambridge

In July, David received his Advanced Placement (AP) exam results and his place to study Engineering at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge was confirmed.

After a lot of shopping and collecting things from the loft, he was ready to go.

On Sat 29th Sept, we drove up to Cambridge and along with all the other new students, installed David into his room.

I was blessed to be able to stay with friends the Johnson family who used to be at Arun Community Church but now live on the outskirts of Cambridge.

On Sunday we enjoyed attending Kingsgate Church. David was warmly welcomed and he has continued to settle and really enjoy his involvement there.

He has also settled extremely well into university life. He has made friends in his corridor, college and course and has become affectionately known as "Baby David" by the whole college.

Soul Survivor

Having made lots of friends among the young people; Tom, David and Jessica joined the youth to attend a week at Soul Survivor. It was a great week for them.

At the end of the week, Adrian had to collect Jessica a day early in order to get ready for their flight as Jessica needed to return to school in Chiang Mai.

It was a tough goodbye for them to leave Tom and David at the camp

Highdown

It's lovely to enjoy the beautiful downs.

Elphin

A highlight of our home visit it to spend time with grandparents.

We took the opportunity for a family photo to be used on the missions display board at Powerpack.
As usual we were blessed with amazing cuisine.

Before leaving, we had the traditional annual weighing and measuring of the children.

After Jess and Adrian had already returned to Chiang Mai, and Tom had left for America, we had an early celebration of David's birthday before he went off to Cambridge.
