This is a very personal documentary that provides an insight into a very special community in which i grew up with in. The people on this site and within this community were family, more then just a location each resident saw this as their sanctuary, from children to elderly people this really was a place that community existed.Recently I led a social campaign against the land lord and Shepherd Neame (whom owned the land on which the caravan was located), after a successful campaign which gained local and national press Shepherd Neame and its Chief Executive Jonathan Neame would not uphold their own core values of community and after over 50 years and 3 generations of customers and residents, Neame evicted the residents and closed a community of people. The film has now become an archival, social documentary which aims to preserve a community lost. Please Enjoy.
