Chairman's Annual Message
Dear Centre members,
It is with great pride and honour that I can write to you again in my 2nd year of office as your Chairman of the Gwent Centre.
What an unprecedented year we have had in the 2020 season, not one that any of us could have envisaged when we were all planning our weekends and holidays away in the dark, Winter months at the beginning of the year. So many plans, occasions, events, and celebrations have had to be altered, cancelled, or postponed, the centre’s 50th birthday celebration rally being one of many.
You will find a section in this year’s rally book on the rules and regulations concerning Covid-19, please take time to read and digest this information and be prepared for it to alter as the Governments legislation changes.
So, looking forwards to the new season in 2021, as we were unable take part in the rally programme that had been put together by your Rally Secretary Stefan, we have taken the decision to run with as many of the same rallies as were available, along with some new venues and some old favourites. We have a holiday rally in France in July and are hoping for a home holiday rally during the school holidays, please keep an eye on the Gwent centre web site for further details. I really hope you will all be able to get out onto the rally field as soon as we are all allowed to meet up with old friends, catch up on all the news face to face and have those all-important hugs I’m sure we are missing!
We are putting together a system for online bookings which will be easier for all to access but for now, please access the rally book under Latest news which will give you a link to the rally book where you will find the contact details for your dedicated rally officer for you to book with.
Our postponed 50th birthday celebration rally will see us returning to the venue of our wonderful Welsh National 2018 at the Monmouthshire showground. Please see all the details of the rally on August 28th weekend in your rally book and I really hope you will all come and join in the party!
Again, this year, a Youth committee has been formed. Although small in number, they will be encouraging members who have their children and grandchildren with them, out onto the rally field to join in with their activities! If you have youngsters in the family who would like to join the committee, please get in touch with the Youth Liaison officers.
May I express my thanks to those Centre members who have offered to run rallies and events for the Centre. Without their effort and time, which they give freely, none of us would be rallying. Your dedication and commitment cannot be faulted. Thanks also must also go to the landowners who allow us to use their land and facilities.
Finally, I would like to thank you, the members, for all your support to the Gwent Centre. Without you, none of this would exist. I am looking forwards to the coming year and as soon as we are able, let’s get out there, make more happy memories, rekindle old friendships and welcome new friends into the fold. As it has been said before, we have always been known as the friendly Centre - long may this continue!
Allen and I wish you happy rallying in 2021 and we look forward to meeting up with you all soon!
Chairman, Gwent Centre
