Yew Tree Farm Meeting 15th to 20th July 2021

WOW, what a welcome to this meeting – wall to wall sunshine and hot with it as well! Tony and Sue, running their Lunar first rally, had done a superb job of organisation ably assisted by the experience of Peter and Katina.

 

Thirteen vans were booked in on this lovely open but undulating site, levelling blocks were well in evidence.

 

What a delight it was to meet once again with all our Lunar friends we had so rarely seen, some for over a year. The programme started with the usual tea and cakes gathering and, by golly, the cakes were good.

 

The days were our own with many enjoying a group coffee or visiting the delightful town of Bewdley and the surrounding countryside. Friday late afternoon saw another gathering (to finish off all the cakes!!)


Saturday evening the marshals put on a wine and cheese evening with a sumptuous banquet of many cheeses with French bread and biscuits and nibbles and several boxes of wine which, not surprisingly, emptied themselves quite quickly.

 

On Sunday evening we all joined Sue and Tony for the raffle draw and a quiz and bingo session all carried out with a lot of fun and laughs. Sue had made several of the raffle prizes and one, a firmly stuffed cat (now named Sue!) sits proudly in our caravan watching all we do.

 

Monday morning started with a boules match, ladies versus men. Although playing in longish grass which made it tricky to see the jack the Men won by 13 to (12?). The ladies insisted it was 12 the men thought otherwise! It was then back to the marshals for refreshments.

 

Monday evening, we had a meal in the Pub which was right next door to the site, a three course carvery for £12 – amazing value.  And so ended probably the hottest (weather wise!) meeting Lunar had had for many years.

 

Many, many thanks to Sue and Tony and Katina and Peter for all their efforts to ensure we had a great time, we all really did !

 

Sutton Hoo Rally

August 12th to 17th

We have wanted to visit the legendary Sutton Hoo for many years and having watched the film "the Dig " we already knew that we were going to see a variety of lumps and bumps in the grass so we weren`t disappointed in the visit. The cream tea was a real bonus.  Like this trip the rest of the rally was thoroughly enjoyable!

 

The weather mostly stayed fine and warm allowing us to enjoy activities on site as well as a variety of excursions. At the arrival get -together members welcomed new ralliers Paul and Sonja and were given details of the rally plans....with copious amounts of cake of course!

 

During the rally we enjoyed two group meals at the local pub as well as a social evening with a quiz and American supper in the barn on site. To keep everyone active we also had a game of Noki or "silly skittles " and a few people visited the local Suffolk Punch Horse Centre although this wasn’t considered a high spot in the week!

 

We also used the barn again for a farewell wine and nibbles session. Well, after the marshals worked so hard cleaning it ,it would have been a shame not to take advantage of the space.

 

New members Paul & Sonja joined us for their first rally, saying they’d felt very welcome and they’d definitely do it again! Our other new ralliers, Bob and Julie, were delayed by illness but enjoyed the time they spent with us as they have booked to come on the Hallowe`en rally.

 

It was really good to see first time ralliers out with us and even better to see how welcome they were made to feel. 

 

This was a very successful rally and our thanks go to the Marshals and co- marshals. Thank you Cathy ,Phil, Jenny and Keith for all your hard work !!

“HALLOWEEN” RALLY, COOMBE NURSERY, SALISBURY

October 28th to November 4th

 

We all arrived in blustery conditions though it was thankfully dry at the time of pitching.  Thirteen vans were booked into the rally and the majority of those attending decided not to erect their awnings due to very windy conditions.  A lucky decision as it turned out.

The site being on high ground was very open to the elements. However, it is next to Salisbury Racecourse with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

 

This was the second time we had been to this site for Halloween, the last visit being in 2018.  A real bonus at this site is a room available for our use.  After everyone had set up, we then gathered for our usual tea and cakes and to greet our fellow ralliers, who included new members Sandra and Bob Davis. It is great to think we are now returning to some semblance of normality with our friendly and relaxed rallies.

 

Whilst the first three nights were very windy and wet, the days were dry enabling everyone to go out and about. As Terry and I knew Salisbury quite well we explored more of the surrounding villages, which we found very picturesque.  Others ventured into the city to visit the Cathedral or drive a little further afield.

 

For the Halloween evening it was fun to see the imaginative costumes and to guess who were hiding behind some of the masks.  The Marshals had worked hard to prepare a buffet meal which we all enjoyed. Prizes were awarded for the best costumes with Roger as a brilliant “Phantom of the Opera” and Julie a very ghostly apparition.


The following day was spent relaxing and decorating the vans in readiness for judging. Many of these were very elaborate and creative, who will ever forget Vic and Linda’s giant spider and webs adorning their van and awning. Bob and Julie had a very animated display both outside and inside their caravan, much to everyone’s amusement. After everyone had taken part in awarding points these were combined, with the result that first prize was awarded to Mike Gyles for his depiction of an eerie graveyard scene in his front window, together with a manipulated ghost puppet. Well done Mike and Ann! (More photos on the Club’s Facebook page)

 

On another day a walk was arranged with a tour guide around the areas of Salisbury loved by Constable. Lorna our guide was very knowledgeable, as well as having a great sense of humour. We certainly learnt more about the background to his paintings and the affection he had not only for the city but the friendships he had made over the years.

 

All too soon the rally was coming to a close and our last evening was spent in the hall enjoying drinks and nibbles and saying farewells before departure the following morning. 

 

Our thanks go to the Marshals, Caroline and Roger, Cathy and Phil for a very successful rally.
