As in previous years, The Caravan Club has once again set up a temporary site for the duration of the forthcoming Spring Show at the NEC from 19-24 February. It will be open from 18-24 February to both members and non members and will offer evening entertainment from Tuesday to Saturday, as well as a courtesy shuttle service to and from the Show, providing the opportunity to visit the Show more than once as there’s so much to see.
All pitches are hard standing and have electric hook-up (maximum 6 amps) for only £30 per night which, compared to the average price of a local hotel at that time, is exceptionally good value. The temporary site includes a restaurant, bar and toilet block, so with these facilities, a visit to the show can be turned into a mini caravanning break. There’s also the opportunity to meet and chat to fellow members about experiences during the day.
Bookings close on 12 February, subject to availability, so show-goers are urged to book early as the site tends to fill up quickly.
Len Short, Events Manager for The Caravan Club, says “The NEC Spring Show is very popular and The Club aims to make access to the Show as easy as possible for its members. Based on previous booking figures, the site is always popular because of the difference it makes to visitors being on the doorstep of the NEC. With the added benefit of the shuttle service, getting to and from the show couldn’t be simpler.”

Apps for iPhones and iPads are starting to be more widely available in our motorhome world. One of my favourites is the National Trust. But today’s announcement from Apple is breathtaking!
Apple today announced that customers have downloaded over 40 billion apps, with nearly 20 billion in 2012 alone. The App Store has over 500 million active accounts and had a record-breaking December with over two billion downloads during the month.
Developers have earned over seven billion dollars from selling iPhone apps so far.
“It has been an incredible year for the iOS developer community,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Developers have made over seven billion dollars on the App Store, and we continue to invest in providing them with the best ecosystem so they can create the most innovative apps in the world.”
In 2012, the husband and wife team at Imangi Studios saw their game Temple Run downloaded more than 75 million times; Backflip Studios and Supercell, two emerging game development studios, brought in over $100 million combined for their leading freemium titles DragonVale and Clash of Clans; and emerging services including Uber, Flipboard, HotelTonight, and AirBnB attracted millions of users on iOS.
The 40 billion downloads figure excludes any re-downloads and updates.
