Dear Sir or Madam,

RE: Campsite Enquiry

I have been looking with interest at your advertisement in The Holidaymaker section of
"The Daily News" and I am particularly interested in your Sundancer campsite in northern
New South Wales. I would like to know whether there are any vacancies at the Sundancer
campsite at the start of August for one week, arriving Tuesday 1st and departing Monday
7th August.

Also, would you please let me know how much it will cost for my friend and me to stay for
the week and whether you charge any extra for the campsites which are located closer to
the beach? We will be camping in a tent, and do not require a site with power.

In addition, I would also be grateful if you could send me information about the facilities
you offer at the campsite, and whether there is any extra cost for using any of these
facilities.
I would appreciate a reply as soon as possible, as my friend and I would like to
begin planning our holiday.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Jane Smythe   (181 words)
