Welcome to South Suffolk DA’s website
Last Edited 15th April 2014
Tell us what you think
As a DA we are interested in what you as a member would like the committee to arrange on your behalf, we have therefore designed a suggestions form for you to complete and return so that we can discuss these ideas at our committee meetings.
The forms can be download from this link or the crates that go out to every meet will have some forms in or you can contact our secretary Nina Zizka 01394 276885 and she’ll forward one to you.

SSDA Handbook for 2014
DA handbook for 2014 sites has now been finalised.
They will available be at the Christmas & New Year Meets or from a Committee Member.
The handbook can be found here.
We have some great news to report, SSDA have a new youth leader. Karl Richardson has offered to take up this post and all the paperwork has now been completed.
He is in the process of going through the meets in 2014 and planning which ones youth events will be run on.
There will be meets which Karl & Dawn will be camping when there will be NO youth events as they still want to be a regular camper with the DA.
We will keep you posted of the dates for the forthcoming youth events, so watch this space. On behalf of the DA we'd like to thank Karl for taking on this post.
