were they all in the same group? its difficult to understand genuine motorhomers standing by and not saying anything without moving on to somewhere else.
The council or police are going to be proactive by getting photo evidence of who is there, when the sites are full like that.

47 is just ridiculous. Preaching "if there are too many there go somewhere else" obviously falls on deaf ears.

So Motorhomes are still using it? Not height barriers but entrance barrier?

I am imagining entrance barriers the people I was talking to Last night thought it was to do with covid control.

That's better news. Now if we could get those that don't spend in the community to make a DONATION and start spending money in the local area, we'd be laughing.

I'll stop there before I say too much... ;)

I read on another Facebook site that the small car park was closed to Motorhomes ( cars only) and the larger one is accepting a max of thirty vans ( increased from 5 ). Apparently this is due to a COVOID outbreak in Glenarm. A council official is manning the gates.

News is the developer has pulled out of the proposed hotel development and it’s no longer going ahead.

I can’t see how they could justify a hotel in Glenarm anyway as there just isn’t enough in it to see or do. Other than ogle a lot of fancier motorhomes than my own I would think!

Yup, I saw this one too. Not sure if it was the same post, but it has something to do with COVID-19.

I was up a few weeks ago. There were quite a few motorhomes and campers in the car park closest to the bridge and the wee beach. Looked quite packed. I don't think anyone is too worried about covid.
I stayed in the other car park I was the only van there. Just stayed for one night.
