Thank you for granting me the opportunity to be your Chairlady for a second year. It is a great honour and with the support of my husband Paul and the rest of the Committee (including the 2 new members Jean Weller and John Mack) we will continue to work hard to keep the South Essex Centre the great club that it is.

It is with great pleasure that I am able to present the 2018 Rally Programme to you all. This is the result of a lot of hard work from David Mills and his wife Marion in his first year as Rally Secretary. My sincere thanks goes to them both. If you have any suggestions for new venues please talk to David as soon as possible.  Additionally, I would like to thank our advertisers for their continued sponsorship. 

This Programme would not have been possible without the support of our Rally Marshals and their assistants, because without you there would be no weekend, bank holiday, holiday and even foreign rallies being run for the Centre. I would like to thank you all so much for volunteering.

Following last year's successful Dinner Dance at the new venue of Thorpe Hall Golf Club, we return there again on Saturday, 3rd March.  I hope you will join us for another enjoyable evening.

The National Rally in 2018 will be held at Sledmere House.  This venue is near Drifield in East Yorkshire and it will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday from 25th - 30th May. You will need to book direct with the Caravan and Motorhome Club via their website or call them on 01342 318813.  If you book on before 31 January, you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of the 6 wonderful prizes supplied by Sledmere House.

It is South Essex's turn to host The Anglia Get Together, which will take place from 21st - 24th June. It will be held at Brookfields, where there will be something to  suit everyone.

The Chairman’s Rally this year will run over the weekend, 13th -15th July.  The Veterans Sports Committee will be there and an extensive programme is planned to entertain you (young or not so young) so we look forward to seeing you there.

Finally I would like to thank the Committee, their partners and the Veteran Sports Committee, for all their dedication, time and support in helping towards the running of our Centre.

Paul and I are looking forward to the coming 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.

Have a safe, happy and healthy caravanning year.

Best wishes.
