I am glad to say that we are able to run  the ‘Thank you Marshals’ rally.  However in order to do this safely we will not be opening the small hall on Friday evening to eliminate close contact and will be collecting your money in the foyer.

The big hall will be open on Saturday morning for the forum and for you to be able to collect your rally books and paperwork.  There will also be representatives from the chosen charities who will give a small talk.

We are requesting that where possible you carry out a lateral flow test before coming on the rally and that masks be worn when walking about the school.  We will be taking your temperature on entry to the school each day. When paying your dues we will be requesting sight of your COVID pass, unfortunately without this you will not be able to access the venue.

So sorry that this sounds a bit over the top but our main objective is to keep everyone safe so that we can carry on enjoying the programme we have put together for you for 2022.



This rally has been cancelled due to Blenheim School not hiring the premises for the time being. I have notified everyone that was booked on and hope that I can run it later in the year, circumstances and venues permitting.


On Wednesday, 22nd December 2021, some members of the South Essex Committee went to Alan Leslie’s house to present him with a glass challis inscribed with a thank you for all the work he has done over the years for the South Essex Centre and for the Region. This was presented to him by Penny Thursby after Will had said a few words. Alan was very pleased with the gift and was very happy that we appreciated his efforts over the years.

Well done Alan, enjoy your well earned retirement.


It would be very welcome if any Marshal or rallier that has enjoyed themselves on a rally could write an article, with photos if possible, for Glenn to include in the Easter newsletter. This can be sent to me or Glenn. Thank you for your support in helping to keep this newsletter running.
