Welcome to our website. It is with great honour that I am to continue as your chairman for the next year, alongside the majority of the committee that you already know. I am pleased that we have stayed together to relaunch the centre rallies for 2021.

It was a very difficult year for us all for many different reasons, and I’m sure like me, many of you missed being out and about on the rally field. Phil Sambrook has pulled together a great programme with a lot to look forward to in it and hopefully, with the vaccines being rolled out now, we will be able to meet up again much more, even if things may still be unusual for a while yet! Have a look at our rally program pages or download a pdf copy of our rally book to find out more.

I am really looking forward to getting out and meeting old friends and also new members who have joined during the lockdown era. You will be made most welcome on any rally, so please come along and give it a go. We like to have rallies that are fun and busy, but there are also rallies just to relax on too - whatever you are looking for and however much you want to get stuck in!

Thanks must go to the retiring Committee member Phil Sambrook, who has been our Rally Secretary and has now moved on to be the Secretary of the South West Region. I am also very grateful to all the rally officers running rallies and events throughout the year; they’re all volunteers, and without their help we wouldn’t have such a brilliant programme. Your dedication and commitment to the centre is what makes us grow year on year! Tracey Mason is taking on the mantle of Rally Secretary this year, so if you have an idea for a rally or would like to help run one, give her a call or chat to her on the rally field.

Joining the committee this year is Donna Maynard who is going to look at re-energising our junior section. Committee meetings will continue to be held on the Zoom platform as it was seen to be so successful during the past year.

For the latest news and updates, keep an eye on our website which is looked after by our wonderful webmaster Nige. Make sure to check out the newsletter as well, it’s a great way of seeing what has happened on earlier rallies. However it does depend on you, the ralliers, getting information to Ann Holdway so she can pull together the next issue.

Fingers crossed for a better year, I hope you all have a wonderful 2021. Liz and I look forward to seeing you all out on the field, having a good time, making new friends and lasting memories. Until then, stay safe!

Mark Tolman

Chairman, Wiltshire Centre
