Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well and looking forward to getting away in your Caravan/Motorhomes over the next few months.
As you will all see, Forth and Clyde Centre Rallies have resumed which started at Logierait, next Rally, is our Nomination and Bowling Rally at Tarbrax, at this Rally you have a chance to put in your Nomination to join the Forth and Clyde Committee for 2021/2022. The post of Rally Secretary is vacant, so if you are interested in joining the Committee please contact, Audrey Whitehead or myself for more information. Our A.G.M will be held on the 4th of September 2021 at Dalmahoy Church Hall at 2pm, masks and social distancing in place where necessary, if it’s not possible to have our AGM in person we will have to resort to a Zoom meeting once again. All information will be on our Website/ Facebook pages. Anyone wishing to book onto Linwater Caravan Park must book the site by themselves as they are not accepting Rallies anymore.
At the end of September we are running a Rally at Paxton House, there is a limited amount of pitches, so booking early is advisable. October see’s the last of this year’s Rallies and we are going back to one of our favourite venues, Drummohr Caravan Park in Musselburgh, information is in your handbook or on our Website/Facebook pages.
At long last, we will be holding our Annual Dinner Dance, this will be held at the New Lanark Mill Hotel, New Lanark, which has a beautiful location next to the river Clyde. If you are interested please get in touch with Samantha McKay regarding Dinner Dance tickets and to book rooms at a reduced price. Alternatively there is a Caravan meet at Overton Farm.
All our Rallies and Dinner Dance are run in accordance with the safety rules and regulations applied by the Scottish Government and the CAMC Governance. I will keep you all informed of any changes to our Rally programme via our Website/Facebook pages as soon as I know, but we all know, Covid can be very unpredictable, and we have to follow all the rules accordingly.
Robert and I hope you all have had a great holiday and managed to Rally during the Summer/Autumn months, we look forward to seeing you all at some point during the year, our Caravan door is always open and a very warm welcome awaits you all. And remember keep safe and keeeeeep Caravanning.

Chairman’s Message March 2021
Hi, everyone I hope you are all well and keeping safe.
Forth and Clyde Centre held its first A.G.M. on 7th of March 2021 via Zoom. I feel the meeting went very well under the circumstances and would like to thank everyone who attended and for supporting our centre. I am pleased to say that all positions on the Committee were filled.
Looking toward the future of our Centre I would like to take this opportunity to encourage any member who may be interested in joining the committee to please contact myself.
Over the past year Covid19 has dictated to us all when we can or cannot use our caravans/motorhomes so our season was extremely short and our 2020 rally programme was left in pieces. Hopefully you all managed to get away in your vans at some point, Robert and I visited St Andrews in August and Balmaha in October but that was cut short due to lockdown once again.
Our rally secretary is working hard putting together the 2022 rally programme so let’s hope this will go ahead, there is also a Scottish National and Club National planned for 2022. I would also urge you all to support the 2021 Forth and Clyde Centre rallies as they are still organised for later in the year.
The Committee has been working hard behind the scenes getting the Centre up and running, due to covid this has taken a lot longer than planned, but we did get everything organised and held a Zoom AGM all be it later than we expected. Hopefully, 2021 will be a better year for rallying for us all as there are encouraging signs for the future. I will continue to monitor the situation in accordance with advice from C.A.M.C governance and our Scottish Government.
I hope that we can all meet up on the rally field soon and we can come together and support each other and Forth and Clyde Centre. We are a new Centre and it needs you the member’s to make it a successful Centre, by supporting the rallies and promoting Forth and Clyde Centre. I’m sure you all enjoy coming to the rallies where you meet up with old friends and welcome new friends, remembering we all have one thing we love in common – CARAVANNING.
Robert and I would just like to wish you all the best for 2021 caravanning year and we look forward to meeting you all at some point on the rally field during the year, our caravan door is always open and a warm welcome awaits you all. Please look after yourselves and stay safe.
Love to you all.
