CHAIRMAN'S CHARITY RALLY AND NEW RALLIERS WELCOME RALLY

 

After a great Chairman's Charity rally, I would again like to thank the Committee and their partners, the Veteran Sports Committee and all the members that helped, to ensure the rally was a success and such a wonderful amount of money was raised for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. The total amount now stands at just over £6,500, thanks to your generosity.  

The rally this weekend also went very well, with a total of 27 units including 7 which were new ralliers, all of which have said that they will be attending more South Essex rallies. Good news for sure. Thanks to Phil & Jeanette, the Committee and their partners for all their hard work and the Veteran Sports Committee for organising their games for everyone to join in.

Watch this space for 2 articles on these rallies to be released soon with photos.

CHAIRMAN'S CHARITY RALLY

Anyone wishing to book onto this year's Chairman's Charity Rally, would you please send your slip and remittance from now on to Sue Maran and not Kevin Higgins.

We would like a few more numbers and would appreciate your support as this particular rally is only every three years but also to support this year's chosen charity, the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Service.

So get those slips in now to show your support.


TOILET CHEMICALS

Due to the negotiation skills of Phil Goldspink, we are pleased to announce that he has negotiated with our supplier to retain last year's prices.

This means we are able to sell toilet chemicals at the old price without the price increase announced earlier.


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.

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
