Center Parcs November Challenge: Autumn Haiku!



It was a very difficult decision, but our 12 Center Parcs Family bloggers have now been chosen. You can find out more details about the lucky dozen here, but if your name wasn’t among those selected then don’t despair – there are still plenty of opportunities for you and your family to get involved in the fun.

Throughout the year, Center Parcs will be selecting eight more blogger families to join the Center Parcs Family Blogger club. So if you fancy getting involved and being in with a chance to win a place in the CPFB club, read on…

Every month we’ll be setting you and your family a simple and fun challenge. To be in with a chance of joining the CPFB club, simply take part in these challenges on your blog and share your post with us on Twitter. It couldn’t be simpler!


This month, we want you and your family to embrace the beauty of the changing seasons by writing your very own autumn poem. Whether it’s a short and simple haiku or an extravagant sonnet, we want you and your children to put your heads together and share your favourite aspects of autumn in poem form. To find out more about the challenge and get top tips from Center Parcs expert Emma Tapp, head over to their website now.

To enter the challenge, simply share your poem on your blog, being sure to mention which of Emma’s tips is your favourite, as well as including the following line in your post: ‘This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 November challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit (specify village)’. Then just tweet a link to the Center Parcs and Tots100 Twitter handles (@CenterParcsUK and @Tots100), including the hashtag #CPFamilyBreaks.

See below for an example tweet:

The challenge closes on Friday 29th November and terms and conditions apply.


Sally Whittle is founder of the Tots100, Foodies100, Trips100 and the Flea Retreat. When she's not working, she can be found blogging at Who's the Mummy, or having fun with her 13 year old daughter, Flea.

  1. Was sad not to get selected first time round but useless at writing poems. Will have to wait for the next challenged I think! Good luck to slam those that enter though x

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
