This is mainly aimed at fellow Settlers :
We are a family of 5 ( 2 adults, 3 boys, 7, 13 and 16) , last year was our very first time at a Festival, at Greenman and camping and we assumed we would just meet some fellow campers and enjoy a great week in company. We had a lovely time, but did not really meet anyone. Our direct tent neighbours were very nice, but all in bands and very busy and of drinking and had no kids. Our boys not the bravest did not really manage to make contact with anyone their age either - such a huge shame, because everything is better with company !! And we spent all day trying to entertain tem when they should have been running wild with all the new friends they made !
So I am reaching out this year now, in the forum, hoping to meet some people in advance, so that when we get there and picth up , we don't spend the week eyeing other Families to see if we could be friends (sounds a bit pathetic, but thats how it was !)
We saw a lot of people traveling in groups of Families, so already had people with them to hang out. We are the only ones in our friends group that are Greenman style inclined, so can't find any friends to come along with us.
Pitty party over ! We have secured a Caravan ticket so will be in that field.
So, anyone with kids in similar ages around this year ??
