Message from our Chairman
The centre held its AGM recently in a very unusual way due to the restrictions placed on us by the government & HQ CAMC, whilst our paramount concern was the health and safety of all our members, with the limits on numbers we felt it was the only fair way of holding the AGM.
As we are all fully aware COVID 19 has had a dramatic effect on all our lives, especially concerning the rallies and caravanning in general, and I realised that whilst still dealing with all the fallout of cancelling rallies and dealing with members concerns etc, I had missed the role of rally Chairman and not having the opportunity to meet the many new members joining our centre, I was encouraged by several members to carry on as Chairman of the centre with the hope that things can only get better next year.
Whilst in normal times a Chairman is in office for 3 years, we are in very abnormal times, and to make things easier during this period, I am very pleased to have been re-elected for a fourth time as your Chairman and hope we can get back to some form of ‘near normal’ in 2021.
I am please that we have retained our hard working committee intact, with only a change of treasurer, thanks Mark for your excellent work, and welcome to our new treasurer Paul Wade who stepped in to save our centre from hibernation, I look forward to working with you.
Unfortunately some landowners are not sure of the future and are coming back to us later than usual to confirm sites etc for our rallies, making this hard work for our rally secretary to pull the programme together, which means it will be delayed for publication.
Connie and I sincerely hope that all our members stay safe and well in these troubled times and we are all in a position to meet up again in the near future, incidentally members are very welcome to contact us if you want a chat, our numbers are in the rally book.
Our very best wishes for the festive season soon to be upon us, lets just hope we are able to enjoy it with our families, stay positive.
Garry Pyett, Chairman, Suffolk Centre.
