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.

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.

AGM - CHANGE OF VENUE

Following the receipt of information that the intended venue for the 2014 AGM is to close, we have been forced to change the venue. The 2014 AGMs will be held at Nether Whitacre Village Hall. There are no changes to the times, but the meeting may start a few minutes later to allow time for members to cross the road from the original venue.


21st September 2014

NOMINATIONS

All nominations for Committee membership must be received by The Secretary by 10am on 28th September. You can download a nomination form from here, or from here for Juniors.

Rally opens on Friday 24th October, closes on Sunday 26th October. No EHU, showers etc. Basic facilities only. Book online.

We still need a rally officer team to help out at this rally. Please contact a Committee member if you can help.

Joan Rollins, wife of John, has passed away peacefully in her sleep after a long illness. Joan's funeral is on Wednesday 7/5/14 at St John the Divine Church, Willenhall, Coventry at 12 Noon, then at Canley Crematorium, Coventry.

EWCC PANTO

Not news, but a reminder to get in touch with Shaun Jacques to book you Panto tickets. It's Robinson Crusoe at The Abbey Theatre in Nuneaton. Everyone is welcome and children who have attended six or more rallies between AGMs 2012-2013 get a free ticket, so call Shaun and claim your gift now!

The rally that weekend is at Higham Lane school, very local for so many members, so come along and enjoy yourselves. There might even be a birthday celebration, although I'm too modest to mention my own 50th...


7th October 2013

MARC BOWCUTT

I am sad to report the passing of Marc Bowcutt at 4pm today, 7th October. Marc had been ill for some time. The thoughts of his friends, the Committee and members of the EWCC are with his wife Margaret.

Marc was Centre Chairman from 2000 - 2002, and was always a reliable source of help in any matter, with a great love of caravanning and the East Warwickshire Centre, even attending last year's (2012) AGM during his illness.

Funeral arrangements will be announced later, when I have them.


6th August 2013

EQUIPMENT SALES - BLUE, PINK ETC

Following a small re-shuffle in the Committee, Shaun Jacques is looking after sales of equipment, such as Blue & Pink. However, as it's heavy stuff to carry half a dozen bottles of each on the off-chance somebody wants one, Shaun will only bring it out if he knows it will sell. This means you need to get in touch with Shaun before a rally to arrange delivery. It's still better value than the shops.


6th August 2013

RALLY 50 - VENUE CHANGE. NOW A PANTO!

The Brailes Village Hall rally in January 2014 has been cancelled and replaced with a Committee-run Children's Party Rally at Etone School in support of a visit to the Pantomime at the Abbey Theatre in Nuneaton, where Robinson Crusoe will be on (oh yes it will). A free ticket is provided for each child who has attended six rallies in the last year. It will be possible to purchase extra tickets for non-eligible children OF ALL AGES! Slips to Hon. Sec. Sylvia East, or book online.


22nd May 2013

BRENDA EDGE.

It is with sadness that I write of the passing of Brenda Edge, or Ma, as she was affectionately known, on Tuesday 14th May. Brenda lived at the Skegness site "Kantankye" with her husband Brian. She will be missed.


28th April 2013

EWCC WELCOME BANNER

The welcome banner has gone missing, if you have run a rally since last August Bank Holiday would you please check to see if you have it, and if so please email me at nigelburgoine@btinternet.com or see me on the rally field.

JUNIOR RALLY VENUE CHANGED

Unfortunately, we have had to change the venue for the 2013 Juniors Rally from Horley Scout Camp to Hampton House Farm, near Kineton. We are sorry for any disappointment this causes to those who wanted to visit the Scout Camp, but I'm sure that the Junior Committee can provide the same level of service wherever the rally is!


11th April 2013

SURVEY RESULTS

We recently concluded a survey into ralliers habits and preferences to try to gain an insight into what we could do to increase the number of ralliers regularly on the field.

There were 10 online and 4 paper responses, mostly from ralliers who do more than 7 rallies a year.

The "Free & Easy" rally is most popular with "Pub Walk" rallies number 2.

There was no preference towards fields or commercial sites, nor for any particular type of facility, although 3/14 would like EHU.

Cost of site fees is not a problem for most.

When asked if they were happy with the type of rallies, everyone said yes.

A majority feel the reason for decline in numbers id fuel cost.

Somewhat contrary to an earlier answer, there were a few people who would like to see more field games and more variety, whilst getting back to basics.

The question "What one thing would you change?" was answered with suggestions to get some new sites, to keep fees low and to welcome new ralliers more, allowing / welcoming them into already well established groups of friends.

SUMMARY

More variety: Thomas East is already looking into this for next year, bringing back a few venues not used for some time along with some new sites.

Fuel Costs & Weather: We're trying but there's not much we can do.

CC MEMBER DISCOUNT ON M6 TOLL

You may be able to benefit from this if heading north... According to an article in the May edition of the Club's Magazine, members get discounted access to the M6 toll road around Birmingham. Might mean you can spend less time on the road and more time with your feet up!

EWCC ON YOUTUBE?

Go to the Videos link from the main index page to read about a new idea of how to expand our video storage capability. (This actually works now.)

CYCLING ON THE RALLY FIELD 

The introduction of the Haslam trophy has led to an increase in the use of cycles on the field, especially by the children.  Some of this has been around caravans, with the attendant risk of injury to the child, and damage to caravans should an accident occur. 

Can we please ask parents to ensure that children do not cycle close to the caravan lines.  This is in accordance with Rule 8 of the "Rules and information for rallies", which you will find in your copy of the rally book. 

Thank you for your co-operation, it is very much appreciated.


10th June 2010

TOWING MIRRORS 

Do you use towing mirrors?  If you don't you may well be breaking the law.  Towing mirrors are a legal requirement if your caravan is wider than your car, as the law states that when towing a caravan you must have adequate view of the rear of the car and along both sides of your caravan.

When you are towing, your caravan makes it impossible to use your car's rear view mirror, therefore you will need some towing mirrors. Your mirrors for towing must not project more than 200mm beyond the widest part of your car or caravan. Although for any cars sold after 26th January 2007 this is now 250mm.

It is also a legal requirement that any caravan mirror must be type approved and e-marked.
