NEWS FLASH

Cloverfields Rally and Open Forum CANCELLED

It is with regret that I have have to inform you following discussion with the Marshals and Committee we have had to unfortunately make the decision to cancel next weeks rally at Cloverfields due to the current condition of the field and the forthcoming forecast.
We have attempted to source an alternative venue with no success.
It is never an easy decision to make to cancel a rally, especially one attached to an Open Forum but the Safety and enjoyment of our members must come first.
We will look to re-arrange the Open Forum for another event (or possibly virtually) but we welcome your questions and opinions via our Suggestion's Page via the website, or by clicking this link....https://www.derbyshirecentre.co.uk/suggestions
Our centre Treasurer Simon Toplis will be in touch with those booked on the rally in the coming days to issue refunds.
Scott Wanless
Derbyshire Centre Chairman

What is an Open Forum?


What is an Open Forum?
Following the committee meeting on Tuesday, we thought we would put a posting up to explain what an Open Forum is.
The Open Forum is an informal meeting (on a rally field) where members have the opportunity to tell the committee what they are happy with and to make suggestions for improvements. Any ideas and suggestions can be discussed as a group. The whole committee will be in attendance and we will do our best to answer any questions you might have.
We are also delighted that Vince Mott will be at the Open Forum. Many of you will know Vince from the Rally Field and his Central Region role. Vince joined the Caravan and Motorhome Executive Committee in October 2023 and he will tell us more about this and take any questions.
All members are welcome to join for the Open Forum at 10am on Saturday 20 April 2024, even if you are not booked onto the rally. Refreshments will be provided.
For those members who are unable to attend, but have something they would like to discuss, please use the ‘Suggestions’ button on the website to submit your idea or question. https://www.derbyshirecentre.co.uk/suggestions

Rally Plaques Update

Following on from a suggestion made via the Suggestions Form on our Website to the committee regarding plaques, we have agreed to give members and visitors the option to opt in or out of receiving a Rally Plaque.

Due to minimum order quantities and rally pricing currently there is NO Discount if you choose not to receive one.

As most of the 2023 rally programmes have already gone live and bookings made we have only added this option to rallies with no marshals or no current bookings and we can review it after the 2024 rally programme has gone live.

Leicester Centre Invitation

Derbyshire Centre have been invited to the Leicestershire Centre Chairman's rally 15-18 August at Bitteswell.
Bookings can be made via the LCC website:

Extra Extra.... Blog All About It!!

We have added a Centre Blog page to our website under the "News" section

The purpose of this blog is to create a more engaging website for our centre. Along with using our website to book rallies, find more information about our centre and services, a blog section helps to keep our members informed about topics that are relevant to our rallies and centre.
The first blogs are available now by clicking News then Centre Blog.

Cancelled Rally – France 1-8 June 2024

Unfortunately, Alan Rogers have been unable to secure a rally site for the rally planned for June 2024 to celebrate the D-Day landing anniversary.
All those who had booked onto the rally have been contacted by the marshals today.
We appreciate that this is disappointing for all involved and we would like to thank Jeff, Michelle, Dave and Lesley for offering to marshal this rally, and for all their hard work liaising with Alan Rogers.
Many thanks to all those members who expressed an interest in the rally for your continued support of the Centre.

Poolsbrook Rally 2024

Poolsbrook Rally 15-17 November 2024
The Caravan and Motorhome Club have advised us that they will be closing the Poolsbrook site in early November 2024, reopening Spring 2025, therefore our rally cannot go ahead as planned on 15-17 November 2024.
The Rally Secretary, with the support of the Committee, is actively seeking a suitable alternative venue.
We will keep you updated.

Newstead Abbey Raises a Whopping £380 for 2nd Defibrillator

Fabulous weekend at Newstead Abbey Rally! 28 units attended, with visitors from Notts and Leicester Centres. There were also 2 first-time Derbyshire Centre Ralliers.

Friday was all about relaxing on arrival day, Saturday we had a lovely afternoon showing our ‘Crafts’! Saturday Evening we had a quiz and a couple of games of ‘Play your Cards Right’!!! ♥️♣️♦️♠️ and the paper aeroplane competition!!!

A great night was had by all!

The sun never stopped shining the whole weekend!! ☀️☀️☀️

We also have a new recruit Rally Buddy! Luke has come on board and was presented with his Personalised Hoody! Well done Luke!

During the craft afternoon we asked for donations for Beer tasting, jewellery cleaning, cupcake decorating, Friendship Bracelets, Gin tasting etc to put towards our 2nd defibrillator. Barry Thomas also kindly donated 2 of his beautiful Watercolour Paintings for Auction. We also organised a raffle and sold Ice Creams and Ice Lollies too 🍦🍦🍦☀️☀️which went down a treat!

As Marshalls we are absolutely overjoyed to announce that this weekend we raised a whopping £380!!!!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 some of you may remember we also raised money at the Bamford Rally when we ran the Derbyshire Centre Jacket Potato Bar!

The money raised from both the Bamford and the Newstead rallies totals £460!!!!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

We are delighted and so very grateful to everyone who supported us and joined in on our fundraising efforts for our 2nd Defibrillator.

New OPEN Derbyshire Centre Rallies Facebook Page.....

Acting on advice from CAMC HQ we have now created an additional OPEN Facebook Page to advertise our rallies.

This is in addition to our CLOSED Group which is just for Derbyshire Members and will continue for those registered to Derbyshire.

The new OPEN Page is for us to advertise our rallies to those who are members of other centres and those who are active members of the CAMC.

Please share this new site with any of your Caravan and Motorhome Club friends but who are not Derbyshire Members.
