NIGEL BLACKMAN, PAST CHAIRMAN OF THE SOUTH LONDON CENTRE

It is with regret that I announce that Nigel Blackman, a past Chairman and friend from the South London Centre passed away peacefully yesterday morning 3rd September.

Nigel & Loraine have been tellers at a previous South Essex AGM.

Condolences go to Loraine, his wife, during this sad time.


CANCELLING

We have been advised by the Caravan & Motorhome Club, that we should have our cancellation policy shown on our web page, which is rule 2 shown in the rally book.

Cancelling: You may cancel at any time preferably by direct communication with the marshals or their assistants.  All cancellations received during the seven days preceding a rally and all non-arrivals will incur either a levy of £4.00 or the actual cost to the Centre whichever is the greater. This amount to be sent to the Treasurer within 28 days.  Non-payment may exclude you from further Centre events.


PLEASE BE AWARE:

Your South Essex Membership has to be renewed every year through the Caravan and Motorhome Club guaranteeing your continued membership of the member webpage. The user ID and password will soon be changing and you will need to be a current member to reapply for this information.

Thank you for your co-operation.


2019 AGM

Next years AGM will be on Sunday 20th October 2019 at Chelmer Valley High School. The AGM rally will run from Friday 18th -Sunday 20th October at the same venue.

We wanted the AGM rally to be held at one venue and as there will be a change of Chairman this usually means there is a larger amount of units on the rally, so because of this, the only choice of venue was Chelmer to accommodate everyone. The facilities are better too and more suitable for our needs..

The dates 4th-6th and 11th-13th October were unavailable, so that it is why the above dates have been chosen.

More details will be in 2019 rally book, but this is a notification for your diaries.

Regards.

Sue
