New team, new wheels

The new courier team at Chalain are bringing fresh ideas to the question of what constitutes suitable on-site transport. Can’t imagine why we didn’t think of issuing everyone with Disney themed scooters before.


Bikes are so last season, don’t you know.


Gas bottle change? To the rescue!!

Lots of Canvas experience on Chalain, with Lucy and Robbie switching sides from customer to courier, while Kirsty comes from a committed camping family – her parents were Canvas couriers back in the olden days when it was all about tents, hammocks and drinking red wine out of teapots (don’t ask).


Slightly Baywatch vibe going on there.


Home improvements

Courier accommodation has come a long way since the bad old days of leaky tents on odd scraps of wasteground next to the rubbish dump and half an hour’s walk from the shower.

Mod cons have moved on to the extent that we seem to have not one but two sites with car ports, which puts them one up on my actual house. Expecting to see a hot tub on someone’s decking any minute.


Beach Garden’s Canvas-branded garage.


And Chalain’s facility – room for the bikes as well.
