Our local Tesco's doing tents and sleeping bags and other stuff like air matresses for not many £££s... - like under a tenner for a tent and so on.

Don't know if you'd considered a trip to your local Tesco or not... Don't take a BX though. Too many trolly trolls about... :lol:

Now this is where the much maligned BX Estate comes into it's own \:D/
