As many of you may be aware, 2020 is Colin Brockwell’s final year as Chairman of the Herts Centre .We'd like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to him for volunteering to take on this role over the past three years .Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the rally programme this year hasn’t gone according to plan and, in particular, it was really sad to have to cancel the mid-summer ball, which was to be Colin’s final Chairman’s rally.   Hopefully, later in the year, we’ll be able to meet on the rally field to raise a glass or two to say a proper thank you to Colin for leading the Centre over the past three years.

In line with recent guidance from the Caravan and Motorhome Club, the Centre’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on 10 October 2020 with some social distancing regulations in place. However, regrettably, the planned evening cabaret will not be able to go ahead. In order to continue to function, the Centre must as a minimum have a Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.  If these posts are not filled, the Centre would cease to operate, which I’m sure you agree, would be extremely sad. All posts are up for election, but we’re very lucky that Vanessa Cannon has kindly indicated that she’s happy to continue as the Treasurer for a further year and I’m happy to carry on as Secretary, but we do need some further volunteers to join the committee at the AGM, and in particular, we need people to come forward who are interested in the position of Chair, and ideally also a Vice-Chair.  Many members enjoy the benefits of rallying, so now may be a good opportunity to put something back into the Centre.

There is plenty of support for people joining the committee, so please do not be put off if you have never worked in this role before - we are a team and have a lot of fun!  The committee is currently meeting virtually and this is likely to continue after the lockdown has finished, plus we’ll be meeting on the rally field as often as necessary rather than having mid-week evening meetings. If you’re interested in joining the committee or wish to know more about what’s involved, please speak to a member of the committee or email secretary.hertfordshirecentre@gmail.com, or alternatively complete the attached nomination form and send it to Jean Hickman, 64 Hillcroft, Dunstable, LU61TU or email to the address above.  You do not need to wait until the nomination deadline; you can submit a nomination form at any time prior up to the AGM.   The deadline for nominations is 26 September 2020.

I look forward to meeting you on the rally field soon and I do hope you will consider supporting the committee.

Best wishes Jean Honorary Secretary
