Sue Maran

Firstly, I would like to wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

I find it hard to believe that I am in my third year as your Chairlady, where has all the time gone, it has just flown by. This is because I have been very lucky to have the support of my husband Paul, my family and together with my great Committee and all of you.

David & Marion Mills have worked very hard to produce this 2019 Rally Programme for which I thank them most sincerely for their efforts and time spent. If you have any suggestions for new venues please see them sooner rather than later. Once again I would like to thank our advertisers for their continued support.

I would also like to thank our Rally Marshals and their Assistants, for giving up their time to run weekend and holiday rallies for all of our enjoyment. Your contributions help keep our Centre great and it is very much appreciated. If you have never run or assisted on a rally, you should try it, it is rewarding.

Unfortunately, as you are all aware last year’s Dinner Dance was cancelled due to bad weather, so this year we are returning to Thorpe Hall Golf Club, on Sat 2nd March, let’s make up for it and have a truly fantastic evening.

The National Rally in 2019, will be held at Ragley Hall, Alcester in Warwickshire from 24th -28th May. This year, we will have the chance to compete for the Presidents Cup, so it will be great to see lot of you there as the venue is a lot nearer home for us. You will need to book direct with the Caravan & Motorhome Club via their website or call them on 01342 336666.

At the AGM last year, it was agreed that we support one Charity only, for the Chairman’s Charity year and it was decided that we will support the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. Bev has kindly offered to be our Charity Officer, please help her to raise as much money as we can.

Over the August bank holiday, it will be the Chairman’s Charity Rally at a new venue Orsett Showground. We would appreciate you booking early and post dated cheques are acceptable, please see inside this rally book for more details. We have lots planned, so don’t miss out and be there.

Finally I would like to thank the Committee and their partners for all their hard work towards the running of our Centre and also and the Veteran Sports Committee for making sport available to everyone no matter what their age. It is never too early to consider joining  our Committee’s to continue the success of our Club.

Paul and I are looking forward to this year and hope to see you on a rally soon. You are always welcome to pop in for a drink and a chat at any time.

Best wishes.


Special thanks goes to Colin for taking the Committee photographs, Tony for all his technical help with the website, Geoff for looking after the lockup and equipment and Glenn for his commitment to the newsletter.
