Due to business commitments, it is with regret that Carol Williams has made the difficult decision to retire from the treasurers position in October. I would like to personally thank her for her time and effort whilst serving as treasurer but also for her integrity in recognising the difficulty in dedicating the time required to complete the East Kent accounts to her high standards in the future.

Unfortunately it is a simple fact that under Caravan Club rules, failure to find a new treasurer in October would mean the East Kent Centre would not be allowed to operate.

If you have the skills and would be interested in volunteering for this important position,Please Contact Kevin Bailey on 07702 681326

Dear All

I realise that some of your more long term members may have wished to have been informed about the passing of two of the West Kent Centre former Chairpersons over the Christmas break.

Janet Hill passed away on Christmas day. Her funeral is at 11:30am Wednesday 20th January, at the Eltham Crematorium, London SE9.

Roger Bunce passed away on 28th December. His funeral is at 1:45pm Tuesday 19th January, at the Tunbridge Wells Crematorium.

I just thought that I should let you all know.

Yours sincerely

‘’East Kent Centre’’ Caravan Club

This is the East Kent Centre’s Web-Site

The EKC Centre was formed on 9th October 1965 so next Year will be our 50th Year.

The EKC is one of 68 Centre’s that are listed in the Caravan Club Directory & Handbook.

If you are a member of the Caravan Club you may join us on any Centre event and will be most welcome.

If you want to get more from your caravan, enter this site and have a look at the varied rally programme of weekend rallies and holiday rallies. We are sure you will find something to interest you.

If you haven't tried a weekend without the luxury of electric hook up - then there is nothing to worry about - a leisure battery and gas will keep you comfortable for a weekend and

much longer!

The buttons above will answer many

of your questions.


East Kent Members - Unfortunately, re-registration has to be carried out every year and does often get missed. Please ensure you check your centre registration details online at the caravan clubs website www.caravanclub.co.uk/local-groups or by contacting East Grinstead. This is especially important close to the AGM if you wish to speak,

vote, stand for committee or propose or second a notice of motion.

Could all Marshals for 2017 Please return their

Programme Forms to the

Rally Secretary (Malcolm John) ASAP.


The 2017 Rally Fixture list for is now on the Web site

 (CLICK HERE to See the List)

if anyone wants to Marshal a rally please contact Malcolm (Rally Sec) ASAP for information and up to date availability as the fixtures will be displayed at all rallies.

As you can see we have an Easter rally in Hampshire and Holiday rally's in Dorset and St Ives along with Southern Centre's

I'm trying to produce the Rally book for the Xmas Dance 16, this can only be achieved if we have our Advertisers and Marshals in place with there programmes by the end of October 2016.

Please Marshal a rally so the Centre can continue to rally every weekend through out summer and still keep our winter programme viable.

A number of Centre's have reduced there summer rally's through lack of support and stopped rallying through winter

And we don't want EKC to go down this line.

If you would like to Marshal for the first time give me a call to discuss what's involved, we can arrange for an experience Marshal to assist you. You can get a lot of satisfaction and fun from being a

Marshal so go on give it a try.

Hon Rally Secretary
