Message from our Chairman

I am just over half way through this year as being your Chairman of Suffolk Centre Caravan Club.

Myself and Denise have been busy these last few months attending rallies and spending six weeks away from home touring Scotland, which we have been trying to do for the last couple of years. While we were in Scotland, we attended the Scottish Caravan Club Nation Rally held at Aboyne Castle, Royal Deeside.

On the theme of National Rally, we also attended the new named National now known as ClubFest at the beginning of June. I was Lead Site Crew Leader for Anglia Region. Along with seven other volunteer families from the Region. Four families from our centre helped to make up the team. We sited approximately one hundred and sixty units

It is nice to see people are showing confidence and starting to come out and rally again. The last couple of years with the Covid restrictions in place has not allowed people to pursue their hobby.

Thank you to the Marshals that give up their time for us to enjoy our weekends.

We as a committee are moving forward, cautiously with the ideas I proposed in my inaugural speech last October. We want to make sure we get things right, when it comes to booking rallies on line. Our Web Master, Julian has put a lot of time investigating the pros and cons, so we get the right result.

On the subject of rallies, we are always looking for new venues, or venues that haven’t been used for some time. Most of all we need Marshals to come forward and run some rallies, or at least team up with some experienced people who will gladly guide you. It’s not that daunting and someone will always help you with their experiences of running rallies. We are looking for new ideas that a new marshal could bring to our varied programme of events through the year. If you would like to take on a role of marshal or learn more about it come and speak to me or other committee members who will be able to give good sound advice.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to all of those that has supported the rallies in the first part of the rally season. Look forward to see many more of you, as myself and Denise go on our travels around the different rallies that are still to come.
