The East Kent Centre Christmas Day Rally.

It is with regret that I have to announce that due to the lack of booking for the Christmas rally 24 December to the 28 December this year, the rally has been cancelled. Unfortunately this rally is not financially viable with such low numbers and in order to give people time to make alternative arrangements we have had to make this decision now.

All of those that had booked have been informed and had their deposits paid back.

Anyone who has already booked into this rally will have their bookings transferred to the new venue.

The New East Kent Centre FaceBook Page.

Dear Members

As you are aware the East Kent Centre (EKC) have created a new Face book group (East Kent Centre Caravan and Motorhome Club). This was done in consultation with East Grinstead and in accordance with the GDPR changes. East Grinstead stated “Centre Committees should ensure that they have ownership of” the group. In an earlier message you will recall that the committee did not have sole ownership of the old Face Book page.

Early this morning the old EKC Face book page had a name change and all the EKC admins were removed leaving the rights and control to just one person. I and my committee did not agree to these changes and certainly do not endorse them. We had requested that the old Face book page be closed down by the one person who held the overriding admin rights.

You can remove yourselves from the old Face book page by clicking on the 3 dots at the top on the right side. I believe too that you can also remove any of your photos but these should be removed as the page is closed.

Unfortunately the events of this morning are outside of the committees control and validates the reason for creating a new one solely manage by the East Kent Centre

Chair lady Karen Burch and the committee

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.

To

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

New Rule 4. (Please Note)

Photography/videography may be taken at our Centre’s events and rallies. The Centre and Club may use any photograph(s) and/or video(s) they take that includes you, your party and/or outfit in all and any media, including printed and electronic publications, e.g. websites, or promotional materials, in the advertising of its goods or services. The photograph(s) and/or video(s) maybe stored for these purposes as well. If you do not want to appear in any shots, please advise the organiser if it relates to a specific event, or the Centre Secretary if for all events. They will do their best to accommodate this and ensure you are able to avoid the area being photographed/filmed.

Dear Members,

At this years AGM it is my intention to step down as EKC Rally Secretary. I am planning to remain on the committee, just not in this position. The Committee will be looking for someone to take on this role. I am making this announcement early so that if anyone out there would like to take on this role, they can work with me over this coming year to learn about what is involved. As mentioned above I will still be around beyond the AGM so will continue to support whoever would like to take on this position.

If you think this is a job you would like to pursue or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or any other committee member.
