NEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS

19-01-2022 09:58

We are very pleased to announce that following our committee meeting this month, we have co-opted three new committee members:
Andrew Marples is going to be our new Centre Treasurer and until the beginning of April he will be working alongside our existing Treasurer Kristian, to learn our processes.
We also welcome Bob and Linda Davis as committee members and who have experience of rallying for many years.
I'm sure you will join the rest of the Norfolk Centre Committee in welcoming them and wishing them all a successful time in their new roles and agree that it is great to see our committee is growing in numbers.

Malcolm (Mac) Warminger

We have today received the following sad news from Tony Burns.
Some older members may remember my father in law, Malcolm (Mac) Warminger of Hellesdon.
Mac was a proud and loyal member of the Norfolk Centre, having joined in 1980. His first Norfolk Centre rally was at Waxham Sands in July 1980 ( I know this as I’m looking at the plaque, Mac kept all his rally plaques in albums). His last Norfolk Rally was May Day at Tags Caravan Site, Skegness in 2010. Mac and Pam, his wife of over 50 years , loved the dance rallies in particular. I’m not sure how many rallies Mac attended but it must have been round about a thousand as he was awarded his 800th rally plaque at Wramplingham in May 1992, where, incidentally, he was also the rally marshal. Mac then joined the Retired Caravanners Club and was regularly away with them, but still attended Norfolk rallies when he could. Mac passed away on the 13th January 2022, one week after his 90th birthday. Mac is succeeded by his son Ross and his daughter Jennie, who, with their respective families are themselves keen caravanners. The service to be held at St Faiths Crematorium.
Thank you
Tony
 
 
 

BOOKING A RALLY

11-01-2022 17:11

If you wish to book a rally by email there is more than one way to do this. You can download a pdf copy of a rally slip from the Centre website or under files on our Facebook group. If you have pdf editor, the Facebook pdf version can be completed on your device and then emailed directly to the rally marshal. Another method is to complete a rally slip by hand, take a photo of it using your device or if you have a printer with a scanner, scan and then email to the rally marshal. Rally slips can also still be posted but it would be wise to telephone the marshal before posting to ensure they still have spaces available, especially as the postal system is much slower than email. Whichever option you choose, please remember to complete ALL the sections of the rally slip. This information is needed by the rally marshal.
