A pleasant weekends rally at Poolsbrook Country Park seen those who rallied with us take advantage of all the facilities you get when rallying on a Caravan and Motorhome Club Site.
The weather was fairly kind for this time of year although we did see some rain on the Saturday and during Flag! Otherwise it was quite mild for November. Some people took advantage of the country park and walked the lake, others set off on their bikes for a ride out, one or two even had a visit to the local watering house - twice.
The Rally Buddies were on hand on the Friday night to allow everyone to indulge in a sweet tooth fix by providing their Tuck Shop - Thank you Darcy and TJ, it fantastic to see how popular the tuck shop is starting to become, especially with the "bigger" children among us.
Saturday Evening seen many of the ralliers attend the local Chester's Fish & Chip, Kebab and Grill Restaurant which supplied us with delicious food and drink, with what only can be described as "Maffis" portions! It was a great night had by all who came with us.
We also managed to wish our Marshal, Plaque Officer and Rally Buddy Liaison Andrea Toplis a very Happy Birthday for her upcoming 50th Birthday
Thank you for another successful rally for the Derbyshire Centre, Simon, Andrea and Darcey.
