JULY 2020 RALLIES

We have been advised by the Caravan & Motorhome Club, that following a meeting with the Executive Committee this morning, it has been decided that all Centre rallies for July should be cancelled and that the Exemption Certificate (under which rallies are able to operate) will be
withdrawn for the month of July.

The Executive Committee will reassess the situation for August and beyond at a meeting later in July.

Looking forward to seeing you all when we are able to rally again.

HOME FARM RALLY - 31st July - 2nd August 2020


SAD NEWS

Many of the older centre members may remember Ted and Lily Adams of Rainham, Essex . Last week I put out a call from their daughter requesting a window sticker for their caravan and Brian & Mavis Clark , very kindly dropped one off. Ted died several years ago and Lily was in failing health. Susan their daughter had renovated the caravan for her mother as even though it wasn't in use it was still very important to her Mum and was still parked beside the house. Lily was thrilled it was back to its former glory.

I am sad to have to report however that on Friday evening 12th June, Lily passed away peacefully at home. She had managed to see what would have been her 70th wedding anniversary, and was nearly 93 years of age.

There will be no funeral as there will be a direct cremation. Susan is planning to have a celebration of her Mum's life, once she can, and will keep us informed as to the details. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Susan and her family.

CHAIRMAN'S FAMILY FUN RALLY

Hopefully the Chairman's Rally will run this year.  However, due to social distancing we are reducing the amount of vans.   To date we have no spaces left but we will be holding a waiting list.  The programme will be very low key with our main priority being safety and social distancing. Please watch this space for any updates.

Stay safe, look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.

DONATION FOR PHIL

Jeannette has been asked by many friends, that because they were unable to attend Phil's funeral, they would like to make a donation to a charity of her choice. Whilst Phil believed in giving to charities, especially Cancer Research, he liked also to give to the people close to the ground if you can understand. Whilst he was in the renal ward at Basildon Hospital he asked the staff if there was any gift he could buy to ease their everyday lives. The response was a request for a Dyson tower fan for their rest room. Unfortunately it arrived after Phil came home and during the lockdown. As soon as it is possible, Jeannette will present it to them. It is with this in mind that she would like to purchase a gift also for the carers from St Lukes Hospice at Home and also the carers from the Marie Curie centre, who looked after him with such care and kindness. So if you are happy to contribute to this please make a donation and the purchases of gifts will be made as soon as possible in Phil's memory, many thanks in advance and thank you to those who have already donated.

CHINESE NEW YEAR RALLY 2021


FIREWORK RALLY


MARSHALS WANTED

Hi Folks.

As Rally Secretary for this year, I am looking at new venues from the information gained from talking to club members. So many of you have done so much in the past, and we are all eternally grateful for that commitment, but we need more help...….. I said at the "Thank You" marshals forum, that my concerns are now for the present and the future, as without rally marshals, there will be no rallies. With no rallies there would be no centre in South Essex.

I have two possible rallies that I am requesting marshals for currently in 2021 before I book them. One of these is a Scottish holiday rally at a beautiful 4* club site on the West Coast, overlooking the Inner Hebrides. We had an incredible rally there several years ago. The other is the possibility of booking an old venue of ours, with a new theme at Walton on Thames...Apps Court Farm. This rally would be on the river bank of the Thames, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks, only 4 miles from Hampton Court. The proposed date for this one links in with a special race meeting at Sandown Park racecourse.

BEFORE I BOOK THESE I MUST HAVE CONFIRMED RALLY MARSHALS. Anyone interested in these , or proposing other new venues please contact me. 

DAVE GRAY
Rally Secretary
