Camping in People’s Gardens

Terra Nova Laser Light tentHere’s a new idea and quite a good one in principal. Click on http://campinmygarden.com/ to find out about a new scheme for having people camp in your garden (for a small charge – or quite a large one in one case). It seems to be very interconnected with attending events of a sporting or social nature, so maybe there’s some deal been done with an event website.
