Today a letter was sent to email addresses of 130 EWCC Members. A further 39 could not be contacted by email due to the status of their email preferences set on the Club website.

If you wish to receive emails from the Club, then you must ensure that your preferences are set correctly.

You may also find that the email could have been put in your junk email. To prevent this in the future, please ensure that  theclub@mailing.camc.com email address is in your 'white list'. You may also like to include  secretary@eastwarwickshirecentre.co.uk    in your white list, to ensure emails from the Centre can also get through.

The text of the letter is as follows :

 

Dear Member

You may have recently seen communications from the Centre Committee about the urgent need for volunteers to help run the East Warwickshire Centre. The Club offers guidance and support to all Officer Committee positions.

If you’re interested or would like to volunteer with the running of the Centre, then we’d love to hear from you. 

The Centre’s Annual General Meeting has been postponed until Sunday 27 January 2019 at Bretford Village Hall and we hope that enough members will put their names forward to form a Committee and allow your Centre to continue operating; otherwise the Centre will no longer be able to function and the rally programme will cease.

The East Warwickshire Centre has a long history going back to 1964. We do not want to lose the Centre and its heritage.

If you can help or want more information, please contact the Centre Secretary, Sylvia East or the Vice-Chairman, Barry Roberts asap.

Details can be found on the Centre’s website www.eastwarwickshirecentre.co.uk 


Yours sincerely

Nick Lomas,

Director General

 

2nd December

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dennis Briggs  , after his long fight with Alzheimer's,  onSaturday 1st December.

Funeral details are:   12:30 Thursday 20th December at St Mary’s Church, Church Lane, Cubbington, Royal Leamington Spa CV32 7JT   Followed by a wake at the Kings Head, Church Hill, Cubbington.

Marion has asked for family flowers only with donations to the Alzheimer’s Society. 

Dennis was an active member of our Centre and served on Committee 1982-85, then again 1991-92 becoming Chairman 1992-1994.

He was a Regional Representative from the beginning of the Central Region, and continued to attend Regional meetings as a Nominated Member.  

A Member of Technical and Events Committees, and for two years Executive Committee, not forgetting Volunteer Warden from 2003 until his Dementia made it impossible to continue, but even then he loved being at Mildenhall while the volunteers were working.

Dennis and Marion attended many FICC Rallies, starting in 1998 in Poland, and while a Nominated Member and Executive Committee Member was one of about 10 Delegates for the Club. 

Dennis will be a great loss to the Centre and the Club, and he will be truly missed by all who knew him.

Our thoughts are with Marion and the family at this time.

 

12th November

It is now a month since the SGM, and no new names have been put forward.  The Committee will have no option but to produce a plan to close the East Warwickshire Centre, due to lack of a new Committee for 2019 if this situation continues.  The next Committee Meeting is on 3rd December, and it would be good if we had names by then so that more drastic plans can be averted.

 

9th October

At the SGM held on 6th October, it was decided to continue to move forward with the existing Committee until the AGM, which will be held at Bretford Village Hall at 12 noon on Sunday 27th January 2019.

Members are now invited to send in Nominations for Committee positions to the Secretary (admin@eastwarwickshirecenter.co.uk) to arrive no later than 2 weeks prior to the revised AGM.  All the previous rules of membership qualification will apply.

In the mean time, we are continuing to prepare a Rally Programme for 2019 in the hope that we can continue as a Centre.  Please look at the current list, and contact the Rally Secretary if you are able to take on a Rally.

 

23rd September

Due to the lack of Nominations for Committee (2) the current Committee has been forced to postpone the Centre AGM until January.

On 6th October, at 11.00 AM, a Special General Meeting will be held to present the details of the current situation, the consequences of failing to obtain sufficient nominations to form a Committee for 2019, and discuss the way forward for the Centre.

All Full, Joint and Family members of the East Warwickshire Centre are invited to attend and join in the discussions.

 

1st August

The Centre Secretary has been asked by the Chairman and Committee to send out a letter to all registered Centre Members, setting out the current status of the Centre.  Unfortunately without additional support at Rally Officer and Committee level, the future of the Centre is now in doubt.

Members are encouraged to contact the Secretary if they are able to help in any way to save our Centre.  The Caravan and Motorhome Club HQ have been appraised of the situation, and are providing support to the Centre Committee.

 

16th July

A notification has been sent to ALL Centre Members advising that the Centre AGM has now been moved to Kineton Sports & Social Club, due to the unavailability of suitable facilities at Stratford Racecourse. Date and Time of the AGM remain unchanged.

 

11th June

The poor turnout for the Chairman's Rally has resulted in the cancellation of a number of initiatives to raise money for the Centre Charity.

This was very disappointing, but we will still push on towards our target of £500.  Please support your Chairman, Committee and Rally Officers who are running events to raise money.

 

27th April

Out of the first 6 Rallies this season, 5 have been cancelled through a combination of weather conditions and lack of bookings.

The lack of bookings is now becoming a concern, and the future of the Centre is at stake. Please don't leave it until the last minute to book on to Rallies.  There is a grave danger that Land Owners will not want to book Rallies with us, only to find we are cancelling.

 

9th April

With the very wet start to the season, we have now had the 1st four Rallies cancelled !  

The good news is that Croxall Farm Junior Rally WILL go ahead as planned.

Please don't wait to book into future Rallies, as with smaller numbers attending there are landowners who are reluctant to host small Rallies.

 

17th February

Hatton Country World Rally, hosted by the Leicestershire Centre, will now open at 2PM on Friday 25th May and not Saturday as previously advertised.

 

12th February

List of Printed Rally Books currently held by the Centre can also be found on the Rally Books page

Funeral arrangements are to be advised. Once  we receive information about the arrangements we will let you all know.

 

31st August 2017

Due to the fact that there were no bookings from EWCC Members, we have had to cancel the Green Man Rally.   This may also have a knock on effect for future Rallies at this venue.

The Rally Officer's Meeting will have to be rearranged. Details to follow.

We have had negative feedback from a number of Landowners following cancelled Rallies, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to re-book some venues for the future.

Please do not leave it until the last minute to book. The normal 'cut-off' date is 2 weeks prior to the Rally.

Congratulations to Chairman Karen Shaw, and Past Chairman Jane Burgoine, who successfully completed their 'Go Ape Challenge' to raise funds for this year's Charity. Don't worry if you didn't get a chance to get onto the Sponsor Form, it's still not too late.

This achievement was even more impressive because Karen has a fear of heights !!!!

4th Sep 2016

The Rally Officers Meeting and Juniors Rally at Bretford next weekend (9 Sep) is at risk of being cancelled as there are NO Centre members booked on yet. There is a minimum charge for using Bretford so unless anyone books on by Monday evening, the rally will be cancelled to avoid the excess charges. If you were planning to drive out to the meeting on Sunday morning, please let us know by contacting any committee member, as we will try to get the village hall for Sunday morning only; it is essential that the meeting takes place to set up next year's programme. If Sunday hire is not possible on its own, then the rally will go ahead as planned despite low numbers.


24th June 2016

 

Help required...... Did you know that we only have 3 possible committee members for the next years caravan season 2016/17.

This will have serious impacts on the ability to run the centre and serve you as our members.

We are looking for volunteers to join the committee. New or returning volunteers would be gratefully appreciated. New volunteers will receive full support and will be shown how to manage their role.

Please support your centre if you have the time, just speak to any committee member if you are interested. Remember, without a better supported committee the centre is in trouble - it's a simple as that!!


 
18th May 2016

Help required......Are you interested in supporting the centre. You may not want to join the committee but you can still help keep the centre running.
