A BIG THANK YOU

A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to those on the Movies & Macmillan rally for their cakes and kind donations. It never ceases to amaze me how much we raise each year.

MAINLY MARSHALLS INVITE

On Tuesday I emailed to every member that marshalled during the last season, an invitation to attend next year's 'Mainly Marshalls Rally Social' at Chelmer.

 Unfortunately someone reported that they hadn't received theirs.

 Would members who marshalled during the last season please check both your in-box as well as your spam-box to ensure you have received said invitation.

 Should you not have received your invitation, please contact me either by phone or email at secretary@secc-online.org.uk

 Thank you

 Phil Goldspink (Secretary)

 


MANY THANKS

Just a brief note to thank – The chairman, Officers & Committee for the engraved glasses presented to us at the AGM along with our 1000th Rally plaque. It was an unexpected surprise.
Many Thanks
Sue & Ian Wright.

CAROL AND GLENN'S MAGICAL CHRISTMAS

If you are booking on or have already booked on Carol and Glenn's rally could you please let them know if you are bringing or expecting any children for the children's christmas party as Carol needs to know how many children to cater for. Please could you email or phone Glenn on 01992 651763/07725 162712 or harperg1@sky.com. All children welcome. Could you also please provide a prewrapped gift to the value of between £5-£10 for your children but label will be provided on Friday evening. Thank you.


Dogs in Marquees - Clarrification

To Clarify,

There was never a rule that prohibited dogs from Socials held in a marquee, or any other outdoor cover. To address concerns raised by members, a few years ago the committee ‘requested’ that dogs were not taken into a marquee. A clear majority of members at the recent AGM expressed their opinion that this request be withdrawn. As such it is the committee’s decision that this request is withdrawn. We hope that all members will continue to act with respect and tolerance. We want all members to continue to enjoy rallies.


TOTAL CLOTHING

If you wish to purchase any of these items on these leaflets please go to Home Page of this website and click on the button at the bottom of page.

 


DOGS ON RALLIES

During this year's AGM it was agreed by the attendees to withdraw the request regarding asking Marshals to take dogs into social events.

Whilst rules relating to dogs on leads still apply you are respectfully asked to exercise compassion towards members with allergies.
 


THE BOOKS

Sue and Paul have been responsible for carrying the books to many rallies over the years. Now their time as chair people is at an end they have decided to retire from this job too (much to Paul's relief) although I do not know what he will use to lift up his water butt.

As I am one of the many people who rely on these books I have decided to take on the role of travelling librarian!!! I will not be out as much as Sue and Paul were but I will be carrying the books in my motorhome so they will be with me whenever I am on a rally. I will appreciate your continued help in keeping the turnaround of books going.

Thank you for your support.

Jean


THANK YOU FROM SUE

I just wanted to thank you all for your support over the past 3 years or 6 if you count Paul's term as well. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thank you also for your donations and fund raising for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance where together we raised an amazing total of £7531.02. Well done to everyone.

Thanks again for your gift, cards and kind words too.

See you on a rally soon.

Best wishes from Sue x
