Chairmans Message

January 2016

Hello everyone, welcome to your new year of caravanning. I hope you are all shaking of the excesses of the Christmas and new year period. If you, like me, over indulged a little now is the time to start getting out in the caravan, get some fresh air and a good walk. We have many rallies in the early part of the year for you to enjoy the great outdoors and you can book these from the 5th January. All the rallies are available on this website and of course in your rally book which will be with you very shortly.

As usual we have many fantastic and varied rallies from weekend breaks to longer rallies and of course two foreign rallies for you to enjoy. Thanks to Steve Farley our amazing webmaster we can all look at our rally books on our smart phones, tablets and computers as a interactive flip book, just follow the links on the our rallies page. We can also download the rally book as a pdf to read on devices such as amazon fire, Kindle readers and such.

however you read the rally book, please book rallies as early as possible as they fill fast and avoid disappointment, I look forwards to seeing you on a rally in the very near future, have a great season.

Sandra & Trevor

Ferry Good News
If you are going abroad That is!

As you may know over the last few years P&O have been offering free caravan places on the Hull-Zeebrugge and Rotterdam routes at weekends. This stopped earlier this year but it may come back for a limited time in the next few weeks. If you are considering one of these routes for the rally next year I have attached a booking form which you may wish to fill in with your preferred travel dates to be sent to Alan Rogers.

The dates do not have to coincide with the rally dates merely to have the rally dates included between the sailing dates. This does NOT commit you to anything and do NOT send any money. When or if P&O do talk to Alan Rogers about free caravan places they will do their best to fit in with your dates but these could be on specific dates and will only be available to rally participants.
Please also let me know your thoughts and I will be in touch when I have any more information.
CLICK ME FOR BOOKING FORM
Regards
John Holroyd

A Look Into The Past
By Rita & David Marshal


Our first rally was at Rosedale in 1973. We had a 4 berth Robin, solid wood in those days, very heavy, and towed with a Beetle car, wouldn't be allowed these days.  We had a wonderful time with our 2 boys Richard and Philip fishing in the river with a stick and a piece of string then barbecuing the trout (don't tell anyone).

 We have our 100 rally plaque but stopped counting afterwards too many to remember.  Rallying in those days wasn't like today no double glazing or flush toilet, no heating either, we used to put the oven on, or use a single bar gas fire - shock, horror, and the lighting was gas mantles, which actually were very cosy. I remember taking my Mother to Scotland on a rally at Castle Douglas and when we woke up in the morning there was ice on the inside windows, we were tough in those days.

Naturally as caravans improved and we updated many times.  We were frequent visitors to France when the boys were learning French at school.  Northern Centres was a must, very competitive in those days, the boys entered everything, Roy Syrett and Tony Martin had a hard job picking the teams everyone wanted to be selected.  The atmosphere at the Tug of War was so exciting when they marched out, they even had a mascot, which one year was our Grandson Sam, the crowd roared with excitement.

The New Year Rallies at Wykeham were always popular you had to book early to get a place.  
Our last holiday abroad took us touring the continent for 6 weeks ending up at Lake Garda
We have lots of very happy memories of caravanning and the East Yorkshire Centre, we made many friends who we see often, and will definitely miss our caravan holidays, but unfortunately due to ill health we have had to retire.
