This is the East Kent Centre’s Web-Site

The EKC Centre was formed on 9th October 1965 so this Year will be our  52nd 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 all our 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.

The safety and well being of our members and their

possessions is the committees primary concern.

There have been a couple of incidents at recent rallies and the committee with the full backing of the club have changed

Rule 15a with immediate effect from NOW

Bicycles must not be ridden on site.


- For the safety and consideration of others, the use of petrol, electrical and non-powered recreational ride on equipment

must be away from halls and the area where caravans are sited.

This rule follows the recent change to club site rule 13b

The change will be put forward as a notice of motion at the

AGM as a proposal to make permanent.

As explained at Saltwood, when discussed with the club

we found out that there has been a fatality on a

club site involving a 4 year old on a push bike so

unfortunately the risk is genuine.


 Change to Rule 15a

The EKC Shop

Firstly may I start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year. You will note from various messages on the website, facebook as well as the new rally book that EKC is short of marshal's for the following rallies.

Rally 1721b June 1st - 3rd Stelling Minnis, Knowlers Farm Rally.


Rally 1725b June/July 29 Jun - 1 July Whitstable Rally.

It would be a shame to have to cancel these rallies when so much effort has gone into securing alternative venues.  I hear so often from members 'why do we keep going to xxxxxxx' so please let's not let these opportunities pass us by.  If we have to cancel we may not be given the opportunity to return.  We have had some exciting and fun filled Bank holiday rallies. I am keen to understand why this year we have so many rallies without a marshal.  

Perhaps members can share with me the issues and/or concerns, which prevent people coming forward to marshal rallies.  You can either put your comments on Facebook or send me a personal email.  

If there is anything I can do to reassure anyone or resolve any concerns I will do my very best to do so. Let's not have to cancel any of our 2018 rallies, when so much effort has already gone into securing these venues.


Please consider putting yourself forward as a marshal for one of  these rallies.

Thanking you all for reading.  

Happy rallying everyone.  

Best wishes Kim

Carer’s FIRST was established as a project within Tonbridge VCS in 1991, by Carer’s who wanted to help others in a similar situation. In 1996 Carer’s FIRST took on charity status and became a registered not for profit organisation, number 1085430 and company limited by guarantee. In 2009 Carer’s FIRST became the parent company of Medway Carer’s Centre, a charity set up in 1991 by Carer’s, some of whom remain on the Board of Trustees today. The two charities merged fully in April 2013. By 2013, Carer’s FIRST were supporting over 5,000 Carers across South West Kent, North West Kent and Medway, providing information and support to carer’s of people who cannot manage by themselves through ill health, frailty, disability, mental health or substance misuse.
