Message from our Chairman
Following the relaxation of most of the restriction following the 2nd Covid Lockdown and the necessary cessation of our opportunity of getting out in our caravans and motorhomes, we are have at last been able to resume our rallying, albeit with caution to protect all our members.
Whilst I am aware some of our members also rally with other smaller clubs, they do not appear to have had the same restrictions imposed by the Caravan and Motorhome Club, however rest assured that the committee and myself have been working tirelessly in the background on your behalf to get us safely up and running again.
Whilst we still have some venue’s that are not able to accommodate us at the moment, and also some rallies having a poor take up for what ever reason, although I believe it may well be due to caution with the Covid numbers rising for a while, and now thankfully lowering considerably, we must all respect members concerns and consider their own health status,
Whilst there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel and we can get back to as near as normal as is possible whilst all taking any precautions that suits us all, it really is wonderful to meet up with our old and new friends, I have been pleased to meet and greet several new ralliers on the recent rallies, and I sincerely hope that they can see that we are a friendly bunch and stick with us out the other side of this situation and then see what the Suffolk centre can really do for their enjoyment.
I have just returned from my Chairman’s rally at Newmarket racecourse and was very pleased with the message of goodwill and thanks, raising much needed funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and I hope we all had a good time despite the wind and rain that we endured at this excellent location.
With the AGM soon to be upon us, can I ask you members who enjoy rallying, if you would consider joining the centre committee to assist in the running of the centre whose main core reason is the rallies run for your enjoyment, if we fail to continue with a good committee and especially the officers of Chairman, Secretary & Treasurer, then the centre will be administered from either amalgamation with another centre, or from CAMC, thereby losing our 50 plus years of excellence and our own centre identity, with the added knock on effects.
Connie and I wish you all best wishes for the rest of the summer and the remaining rallies this year, but above stay safe and in good health.
Garry Pyett, Chairman, Suffolk Centre.
