Hook up help???

Postby jonochap » Wed Aug 15, 2012 4:58 pm

Hi, have booked a space now but all the hook ups have gone...i am 21st on the waiting list for a cancellation though!

My only problem is that to be able to go i really need to keep a mobile phone charged (and my sister is worried about using hair straighteners.. But hey, her issue)

Is there anyone on a hook up who might let us use sockets in their van or other just to do these things? Hate to ask and did think bout hiring a genny for the weekend but seems loud and daft...and not being able to charge a phone is a bit of deal breaker for me...

And i think it would be better to have someone ready rather than my usual walk up and down the site hoping...

Thank you for reading and hopefully helping...

Jon and kate (shes the one with the straightener issue...me...not so much)
