Welcome to RCBDA
Welcome to the Royal County of Berkshire District Association. Camping with your local group or District Association (DA) is one of the best ways to make the most of the great outdoors whilst making new friends at the same time. The Club has 93 DA’s spread across 13 Regions.
We offer some of the most inexpensive camping available and you’ll always be guaranteed a warm friendly welcome. Members are welcome to attend any Meet, whether it’s organised by your own DA or a different DA elsewhere in the country.
PLEASE READ Important Information
It is with great regret that I need to inform you that Ian Richardson has stepped down as chairman, and Jim Howles has also stepped down as Sites Officer with immediate effect, this is due to personal reasons, we wish them all the best and thank them for the time and commitment they have both given to the DA.
We are still desperately in need of a treasurer and also general committee posts as the numbers are low. If we don’t get any volunteers come forward by the AGM then we will have no choice but for RCBDA to be folded, which I hope you will agree would be a huge shame.
On a more positive note…
I apologise for the lateness of the advertising but we are still holding our Christmas social on Saturday 13th December, Please see attached poster for more information.
Also attached is a copy of the 2015 sites list, we are desperate for stewards new and old if we are to proceed with these meets. It goes without saying, we need the support in order to continue.
If you require any further information on any of these subjects please feel free to contact myself or any other committee member.

At Wednesdays committee meeting we were unable to appoint a treasurer. After speaking to one of the executives at Southern Region it was confirmed that unless we get a treasurer immediately, RCBDA will unfortunately go into the hands of Southern Region.
Please contact Ian Richardson if you are willing to take on this role.

Please click here (or navigate to ‘Events > 2015 Sites’) to view the 2015 sites list. Please be aware that this is still work in progress and is subject to change.
No stewards have been allocated to any sites.
If you wish to steward the same event at 2014, or ask to steward a particular meet, please contact Jim Howles on 07731 522155 or firstname.lastname@example.org
All events must be on the events database by Christmas at the very latest. If we do not meet this deadline, the 2015 camping season is at risk and we will loose out on ‘Out and About’ entries.

As you probably noticed, for the last couple of weeks the RCBDA website has been down.
Unfortunately there was a world wide security issue with the website platform that we use which caused the site to become compromised, allowing hackers to send spam emails with a hidden identity. For this reason we had to temporarily disable the website in order to prevent further spam emails being sent.
You will be pleased to know that despite the website being compromised, none of the user data stored on this website was infected and will not cause any further repercussions.
We are sorry for the inconvenience that this caused and would like to assure you that the issue is now resolved.
The DA committee will be needing a new treasurer in place as of November so they can learn from Gillian before she finishes.
We are also looking for an auditor and sites officer for next year as of the AGM.
For more information, please contact a member of the committee via the details on the committee page, available by clicking here.
