Look East visited the Easton Farm Park Campsite this week. The outcast broadcasting team
descended, as did the rain. They were doing a piece on camping without Wifi. Can people live without their devices? The most common question asked by campers as well as how far is the local pub, a pleasant ten minute walk in case you're interested, is, 'What's the Wifi code?'
Darling of the media, Cara Edwards, gave Look East a tour of the farm and answered the questions posed live on TV, apparently so nervous that even her eyes were trembling, explaining that the farm Wifi was renowned for being terrible, but that a new mast was being erected on the shower block to boast coverage in the time for the August bank holiday. The general consensus of the piece was that it didn't matter if you were isolated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside amidst the wildlife and undergrowth, the open fields and meadows, you still needed Wifi. Snapchat doesn't sleep!
The other big news from the campsite this week was that the Barmy Barn opened its doors on a Saturday night for a fish and chip, gin bar and Bingo night. The event was well attended. Georgia and her team had all the fryers fired up for the batter, the gin kept flowing and the occasional shouts of bingo punctured the air. Everyone went home happy, especially the winners, and the event overran considerably, always the sign of a good night. Gluttons for punishment, Georgia and Lucy then opened the barn again for breakfast service on Sunday morning. They laid on fry-ups for children and adults, a variety of home-made pastries and the thoroughly inspired ultimate American breakfast bap. Hungry campers ate scrambled eggs, drank coffee and read the papers while the kids played in the soft play area. It was a relaxing start to Sunday. A good beginning to the day. And something that will be definitely continued for the rest of the season, and seasons hence.
