“All of our Holiday Site Managers, Assistants and Franchisees really get into the Christmas spirit and there is always a fantastic atmosphere during advent.
“Many of our Club Sites are offering campers the chance to get involved in traditional pastimes such as carol singing, food and drink tasting and Christmas walks so why not take advantage of this exciting opportunity and enjoy a magical Christmas with The Friendly Club?”
Festive campers can also enjoy a German Christmas Market Tour with The Club’s Worldwide Travel Service, Carefree.
