A Message from our Chairman
Hello everyone and welcome to the 2021/2 rally season with the Norfolk Centre.
I am honoured and privileged to be your new Chairman and look forward to working with your new committee as we continue to face the challenges of the global pandemic on our Centre; my thanks go to Andy Patterson for ably leading the committee through a turbulent year that saw rallies cancelled in unprecedented numbers due to ‘lock-downs’ and other rapidly changing restrictions.
It has been a tough year nationally with some Centres folding and many continuing to struggle; I am absolutely determined that the Norfolk Centre will prevail no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in.
Our priority will be to offer our members a safe rally programme that is compliant with Government and Head Office guidelines as, hopefully, restrictions ease and allow us back out in our caravans and motorhomes to catch up with old friends, make some new ones and relax and enjoy a change of scenery; things we have all been desperately short of in 2020.
My thanks go to the Marshals who have committed to running rallies in these uncertain times, I hope that as many members as possible are able to support these rallies and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this coming year.
We simply would not be able to rally if it wasn’t for the time and effort put in by the Marshals, please remember that they, like the committee, are volunteers who give their time and energy for the benefit of us all.
If you would like to run a rally or volunteer as an Assistant Marshal to see at first hand what it involves, please contact me or any committee member as we would be glad to answer your questions and tell you what it's all about!
Now, more than ever, it is important to keep checking our website and Facebook page, 'Friends Of The Norfolk Centre’, as we will publish updates on rallies and let you know how the ever-changing pandemic restrictions are impacting our rally programme.
Let me assure you that we have a strong and determined committee who are ready and able to face the challenges of 2021, and, with your support, get the Norfolk Centre back rallying for everyone’s benefit and enjoyment as soon as possible!
Julie and I look forward to seeing you soon.
With best wishes,
Nick Flower, Chairman, The Caravan & Motorhome Club Norfolk Centre
