Gwent Centre 50th Birthday Celebration Rally - Please Note this Event will now be run as a Standard Rally - 18 Aug Update - RALLY IS NOW FULL TO NEW BOOKINGS

gwent logo

Rally Location: Monmouthshire Showground, Redbrook Road, Monmouth NP23 4LG

Rally Marshals: Gwent Centre Committee - Telephone: 07725 443776

Rally Costs: £32.50 total cost per Caravan or Motorhome (up to 4 people)

This is a milestone event in the history of the Gwent Centre and we hope that as many of our members as possible will join us on the weekend to celebrate this epic event.  

June 2021 - Update from our Chairman - revised event:-

The Covid pandemic has affected many of the Centre's plans, not least our plans to celebrate the Centre's 50th anniversary in 2020.  When the Committee and I had to make the difficult decision to cancel the original festivities and celebrations we immediately starting commemorating the Centre's birthday with ONLINE activities.  You can still view the Centre history video's prepared by Nick Haynes that we posted and many of you commented on.  During the date of the original celebration weekend many of you joined in with our online quizzes, games and chatter.  We still managed an online cake cutting celebration with speeches and I raised a glass with you to celebrate the Centre's special birthday and we looked forward to setting a date in 2021 to celebrate the Centre's historical anniversary in the form of a Celebration Rally.

Here we are a year later and with the increasing number of cases of Delta Covid variant around the Country, it is still a very uncertain position that we find ourselves in.  The Centre Committee have reviewed and discussed the Celebration event and have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the celebration event as the Centre would otherwise be faced with significant costs if the decision to cancel is delayed until nearer the date.

We have contacted the Monmouthshire Showground and they are happy for us to hire the fields and so with this in mind we will retain the date and run a STANDARD RALLY over the weekend, with no marquees or entertainment, but we will try to run some activities over the weekend in line with current Covid guidelines.

The cost of the Rally therefore is now reduced to £32.50 for the 3 night stay.  Any members who have previously paid the higher fee for the Celebration weekend should contact the Centre Treasurer, Geoffrey Morgan to arrange a full or partial refund.

We hope that you will still be able to join us for the weekend and it will be a lovely opportunity to catch up with old friends and hopefully make a few more friends.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members for their support during this difficult time for our Centre and for rallying across the Country.
