We had to shine a spotlight on a brilliant technology-free event called Camp Grounded, which was flagged up by Rusty Blazenhoff at Laughing Squid.

Run by a company called Digital Detox based in the States, areas included using a typewriter to write notes, writing messages on a communal chalkboard (instead of commenting on Facebook) and 'device free' areas.

It's called 'summer camp for adults' and takes place in California, with the promise that it's where "grown-ups go to unplug, getaway and be kids again. Together we'll create a community where money is worth little... and individuality, self expression, friendship, freedom and memories are valued most."

Now, can we have one in Britain, please?
