Centre Rallies - 29th June 2020 - Monday, June 29, 2020

Centre Rallies - Latest update

We have been informed by Club that all rallies up to the end of July are now to be cancelled. This is due to rallies being viewed as "meeetings" or "gatherings" and the fact that "gatherings" of more than 30 people are to be made illegal under the proposed legislation to deal with Covid-19 and the easing of "lockdown" provisions. Club will be reviewing this on 20th July 2020 in order to advise us regarding August, and later, rallies.

Other cancellations:

"Sculpture Rally" at Brookfield is cancelled, as it is on school premises (August)

"Observation Rally" at Calne is cancelled as the Motor Museum is closed "for the foreseeable future" (August)

Frome Cheese Show (September) has been cancelled by the show organisers

The Avon Centre and the Gloucester Centre have cancelled all rallies up to the end of September 2020

The "Murder Mystery" at the Chairman's Farewell Rally has been cancelled, although it is hoped the rally will proceed with an alternative social, details will be published when we know the situation.

Any Rally Officers who feel unable to run their proposed rallies (should we be allowed to recommence rallying), due to personal safety concerns, are requested to contact the Rally Secretary, as the Committee would like the opportunity to try and find alternative Rally Officers in order that rallies can, hopefully, still be run.

All Centre Competitions for 2020 will not take place, but will be "held over" to 2021.

Payment for Rallies - Sunday, June 21, 2020

Whilst most members pay deposits for rallies by cheque, and many pay the balance on arrival by another cheque, it is appreciated that an increasing number of members no longer have access to cheques. It is not possible, at this time, to setup a fully on-line credit/debit card payment system as the security requirements of the Data Protection Act (2018) cannot be met.

In order to accommodate those members a system is to be trialled whereby payments can be made by Bank Transfer.

Details of the trial can be found by clicking the "Payment for Rallies" link at the bottom on the right hand side, or from this link to the .PDF

Committee Vacancy - Wednesday, January 8, 2020

It is with regret that we announce the resignation of Mrs Jan Palmer from Committee for personal reasons. We would like to record our thanks for the work she has done whilst being a part of the Committee

This leaves a vacancy on the Committee, if anyone would like to be considered for co-option to Committee please contact either the Chairman or the Secretary

A full Committee is an essential element for the smooth running of the Centre, so a volunteer would be greatly appreciated.
