No one seems to post where 'Travellers' are located, so to get
the thread going.

Our local paper reports approx 15 caravans in the new Lidl car
park in Ringwood Road, Ferndown in Dorset (The store doesn't open
for a few weeks yet!). Looks like they are trying to get back in
the Bournemouth area for the summer.

Any one else seen or heard of any others?

that was still intimately gripping an essential bit of you. Its eyes watered.

You would need a live system as they are always some on the move somewhere.
Any info posted here would soon be out of date!

All you need is to know when and where the horse fairs are held. Where there is
a horse fair the pikies are bound to go, as they try to muscle in on the Romany
horse traders who are several classes above pikies.

Cheers, Peter.

If they prevent another crap supermarket selling inferior German and other
imported substandard food for a while, perhaps it's the best thing Pikies
have ever done!!
