CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

 

AT OUR AGM ON SATURDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2017, A COMMITTEE OF 11 DEDICATED MEMBERS WERE ELECTED WITH A FURTHER TWO MEMBERS CO-OPTED AND IN ADDITION TO THIS, DONALD BAIRD WAS ONCE AGAIN APPOINTED AS EAST CENTRE WEBMASTER.  

 

THE AGM WAS ATTENDED BY 36 MEMBERS, INCLUDING SCC CHAIRMAN DAVE SMITH WITH AUDREY, SCC VICE CHAIRMAN FRASER TODD WITH LOUISE, SCC SECRETARY KENNY ROBERTSON WITH ELAINE AND SCC VICE PRESIDENT LIZ ROSS WITH DAVID.KENNY ROBERTSON SCC SECRETARY WAS ALSO OUR INTERIM CHAIRMAN.

 

I WAS HONOURED TO BE DULY ELECTED AND INSTALLED AS EAST CENTRE CHAIRMAN FOR A 3RD TERM IN OFFICE, AS THERE WAS NO VICE CHAIRMAN.

 

CURRENTLY THE CENTRE STILL DOES NOT HAVE A VICE CHAIRMAN GOING FORWARD INTO THE YEAR WHEN THE EAST CENTRE HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF HOSTING THE SCOTTISH CARAVAN CLUB NATIONAL RALLY ON BEHALF OF SCOTTISH DIVISION.

 

ONCE AGAIN, I WOULD APPEAL TO ALL MEMBERS, INCLUDING THE CURRENT COMMITTEE MEMBERS, TO PLEASE GIVE SERIOUS CONSIDERATION TO STEPPING UP TO THE MARK AND UNDERTAKING THE ROLE OF VICE CHAIRMAN, AS THIS WOULD BE OF GREAT ASSISTANCE TO MYSELF AND THE CENTRE, DURING THE RUN UP TO THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL.

 

I WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO CO-OPT A WILLING EAST CENTRE MEMBER INTO THIS IMPORTANT ROLE. IF YOU CAN GIVE YOUR SUPPORT TO YOUR CENTRE IN THIS WAY, THEN PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

 

OUR RALLY SECRETARY, LOUISE TODD, HAS BEEN WORKING HARD TO ORGANISE A FULL RALLY PROGRAMME FOR NEXT YEAR, INCLUDING SOME EXCITING NEW VENUES. WHETHER YOU ARE A REGULAR RALLIER, OR NEVER BEEN TO A RALLY BEFORE, PLEASE COME ALONG AND GIVE THEM A TRY. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT YOU WILL BE MADE VERY WELCOME.

 

THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL RALLY IS BEING HELD AT SPRINGWOOD PARK, KELSO FROM 4TH – 8TH MAY 2018. BOOKING FORMS ARE NOW DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE EAST AND THE SCOTTISH CARAVAN CLUB WEBSITES. THERE WILL ALSO BE AN EAST CENTRE PRE- NATIONAL RALLY AT ANCRUM AND A FOLLOW-ON RALLY AT CROSSBURN CARAVAN PARK, PEEBLES.

 

SINCE THE RESTORATION OF THE EAST CENTRE FROM HIBERNATION TWO YEARS AGO, THE COMMITTEE HAVE BEEN SLOWLY INTRODUCING CHANGE TO THE WAY WE ORGANISE RALLIES AND EVENTS. RALLIES ARE BEING EXTENDED WHERE POSSIBLE TO 4 DAYS AND SITES WITH HOOK UPS AND FACILITIES ARE BEING USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH LOCAL EVENTS.

 

NEXT YEAR THE COMMITTEE HAS DECIDED TO HOLD A MUCH LESS FORMAL EVENT ON THE 27TH JANUARY 2018. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE IN “THE CLUB” BROXBURN AND WILL BE A NIGHT OF ENTERTAINMENT AND DANCING WITH ONE OF SCOTLAND’S TOP COMEDY/VOCALISTS. A TWO COURSE MEAL WILL BE SERVED, WITH TEA/COFFEE. THERE WILL BE NO TOP TABLE, OR SPEECHES.

PLEASE COME ALONG AND SUPPORT THIS NEW VENTURE.

TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE PRICED AT £20 FROM THE CENTRE TREASURER, NEIL VALENTINE, OR MYSELF.

 

IAIN AND I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING UP WITH MANY OF YOU, EITHER AT SOCIAL EVENTS, OR ON THE RALLY FIELD.

 

BEST WISHES,

 

MARGARET J DEVINE

Vintage, Veteran, Classic Vehicle Show Rally

 

The Vintage Veteran & Classic Vehicle Show Rally at Selkirk 15th-18th Sept. The rally was attended by 17 vans with 3 visiting from Durham Centre. On the whole the weather was not bad but unfortunately the rain came on just after the start of the BBQ and most beat a hasty retreat.

The centre sponsor one of the competition categories "Working Units" and donated a shield which is presented to the winner in that category each year. Hence the photos of our chairman Margaret presenting the shield to the winner Dennis Andrews

Roslin Revisted Rally

 

The East Centre held their “Roslin Re-Visited Rally” at Slatebarns Caravan Site from Thursday 23rd March to Monday 27th with 21 vans I attendance. It was 10 years since we last rallied there, traffic going to the renovated Roslin Chapel exacerbated by the book and film The Da Vince Code had made getting in and out very difficult and consequently the site had been closed for seven years. The traffic has now died down and better parking and a bus turning area have made access much easier. As the accompanying pictures show the site is very attractive and well worth a return visit. The terrific weather over the weekend – wall to wall sunshine - showed off the site in all its glory.

On the Saturday evening many of us dined very well at the Original Hotel. Thanks go to Helen & John Bullions for a wonderful week-end.

Winter Warmer Rally

 

The East Centre held a rally at Crosslaw Caravan Park from the 3rd to 7th November. The weather was mostly cold and very windy but there were some nice long sunny intervals on the Friday which allowed members to get out and about. We were entertained on Saturday evening by Willy Smith, and his music which had many up on their feet dancing - hopefully working off the supper of chip butties and other goodies.  On Sunday night Iain Devine had us baffled with his lateral thinking, and other quizzes. (I think I will never be able to go and lie down in a darkened room without thinking which switches I should have turned on). These events took place in the site club room which was ideal for the events and the staff went out of their way to make us at home and be helpful with the food preparation and clearing up. The site coped well with the weather as we were all on serviced pitches with hard standings. Thanks go to the rally team lead by Margaret Devine for a memorable rally.
