Knowle couple planning first caravan holiday after competition win

A KNOWLE couple are planning their first caravan holiday after claiming the top prize in a competition.

Susan Gray along with her husband, Iain have been handed a Swift Basecamp 4 SE and Vango porch awning thanks to the Camping and Caravanning Club.

Susan, a lunchtime supervisor at a local school entered the competition online.

She said: “It’s unbelievable really as you go in for competitions but never believe you will win something as big as a caravan.

“You might get the odd bottle of wine, but a caravan is something else.

“When I met Iain we enjoyed a bit of tent camping and then the kids came and we started going camping in France.

“Now I’m looking forward to pitching up somewhere and going for a few walks with the dog before sitting in the van and unwinding.

“We didn’t go away last year so it will be nice to enjoy some weekends away. We plan to start off with somewhere local and then go a little further afield.”

Iain, a civil servant said he is looking forward to go away for midweek breaks at short notice.
