Chairman’s Message

In my last message I spoke about the outcome of our SGM held on Saturday 7th of September 2019 at the Alona Hotel, Strathclyde Country Park. Since that time the East Centre have held their SGM on Saturday 28th September 2019 and the Vote to allow the East Centre to go forward with their proposed Amalgamation to the West Centre was overwhelmingly in favour, which gives the Joint Amalgamation Committee the go ahead for further meetings with SCC Secretary Mr Kenny Robertson advising and intermediary with CAMC as before.

There remains a huge amount of work ahead for us all and I would like to assure you all that throughout this process we endeavour to have the best interests of both Centres at heart. Our next Amalgamation meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 16th October.


We have one more Rally scheduled for this year, our ‘Halloween Spooktakular’ Rally at Kelty Bridge Caravan Park in Callander from Friday 25th through to Sunday 27th October. Bookings to go to Mrs Valerie Brownlee as per Rally handbook. We hope to see as many of you as possible there, I certainly am looking forward to this event with a chance to dress up and join in all the fun.


The Very Last West Centre Annual Dinner Dance is on Saturday 10th November once again at the beautiful ‘New Lanark Mill Hotel’ within the ‘New Lanark World Heritage Site’.

Tickets cost £32.50 and are available from Mrs Audrey Whitehead. There will be tickets available at the SCC AGM on Saturday 12th October also. I think there are still a few rooms available at a slightly reduced rate for Bed and Breakfast, if you are interested in booking a room you would be best to go through Audrey for availability and booking.


The next advert is for a very special event happening in January 2020.

The West Centre would be celebrating its 70th Birthday in January with the East Centre also Celebrating their 70thBirthday later this year. So, we have decided to hold a joint Celebration Party on Saturday 25th of January at the Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club. 

This event will include a drinks reception and a 3 course dinner with dancing afterwards to the sounds of a very popular 6 piece band ‘The White Doves’. This event has been very heavily subsidised by both centres, so it would be lovely to see as many of you there as possible. 

The cost of tickets for this event is £30 with rooms available in the hotel at a reduced rate of £89 per night if booked no later than 12 weeks prior to the day. 

Bookings can be made through Rachel, Events Manager on 0131 335 8064 Option 1.

Tickets are available from Eric Williamson or Audrey Whitehead and Margaret Divine or Neil Valentine.


I hope to see as many of you as possible at the Halloween Rally and Our Final West Centre Dinner Dance.


Kind regards

Bikinis and Sand Castles 2 Holiday Rally


We certainly had the quality if not the quaintly this year in a rally that was bathed in sunshine for two weeks just a drop of rain on the Thursday when it was the closing flag but we all managed to squeeze into Fred's awning and then again on the Friday afternoon when you wanted to take the awning down but we managed to get it down and packed away dry but the rest of the time it was sunshine all the way.

Cheese and wine, afternoon cream teas and BBQs and they even provided the pudding, but the thing to die for was Marion's scones, she made them all in the van and they certainly went down a treat with Strawberry jam and cream. The BBQ on the second Thursday had to be cancelled because of the rain but those with electric BBQs could do it in the awning in safety.

At the closing some very sad news that for Fred and Marion this would be their last holiday rally, which is very sad but I suppose they have to retire sometime but it will be a shame that we will have to look elsewhere next year.

A presentation and a card from all the ralliers was done by Northern region Chairman, David Ferdinand and his wife Hazel by way of a thank you from everybody on the rally and then Past Yorkshire Pennine Chairman, David Smith presented Fred and Marion with a Pennine pennant as a thank you from us Yorkshire men.

For those who didn't attend they missed a perfect rally, in perfect weather and perfect company, and a lot of improvements have been made to the site since we were last there and we would all like to thank Fred and Marion for another perfect holiday rally and they certainly will be sadly missed next year but we hope they have a very long and happy retirement and again thanks from us all.


David & Hazel Ferdinand, Northern Region Chairman.
