A Trip to Center Parcs, Eemhof, Netherlands - 24th March 1992

"Corky" David has won a few days at a Center Parcs resort in the Netherlands in a South Norfolk District Council raffle, and takes the rest of the gang along too. So we get the overnight ferry from Harwich in Suffolk to Hoek Van Holland, and then drive down to Eemhof in Geoff's Mitsubishi Shogun for a few days of pretend sporting activity.
