Frequently Asked Questions

Our first preference to a power point would be for a 32amp socket, second choice a 16amp, however if there is no immediate or large demand on power a 13amp socket will suffice.  Alternatively, we can supply a generator and store it in a separate van to limit the noise.  There is an additional charge for generator hire.
