Birthday surprise!

Clarys courier Amber Wing was looking forward to celebrating her 21st birthday by cleaning a few mobiles, followed by greeting the odd arrival in the afternoon.

But the family had other ideas, and booked a sneaky surprise weekend on site, getting in under the radar by going with Eurocamp.



Mum, Dad, Nan and sisters all rolled up first thing in the morning having driven overnight from home in the south of England – far too early to get into their mobile, but does this really matter when the bar’s open?


Hmmm …. can this be called correct uniform?

HB Amber!


Mouse mystery

Looks like Interlaken courier Tony Burchill’s patent pest control methods have caught on if this sign spotted in lodge reception at Berny is anything to go by.

Have to hope the Interlaken infestation has run its course though – your Newsblog reporter had the definite impression that a certain sense of humour failure was setting in after the 300th ex-rodent.

Luxury accommodation

Staff live accommodation continues to move on from the old school tent behind the rubbish bins experience we were all used to in the olden days.

Here we have the new and improved pad at La Baume on the Cote d’Azur, complete with private deck, fencing and ensuite gazebo. Ritzy.


Newsblog hears as yet unconfirmed rumours that Sirene’s infamous gravel pit has received a facelift over the winter as well, but photographic evidence has not as yet been forthcoming – watch this space!

Early season snagging

As a new season gets under way with frankly far too much rain so far, there are always a few snags to pick up.

Mobile home installers at Vieux Port clearly didn’t try opening the door before they blocked this mobile and plumbed it in. Skinny customers only please!

VP bad installation

Also on VP, the new gas delivery driver got a bit confused and left the gas bottles in entirely the wrong place – just as well the team’s trusty buggy had been delivered on time.

Senior courier James Kerr’s verdict on all of this …..
