FELIXSTOWE RALLY REPORT
11th - 21st September 2018
The weather is good and Len and myself are nearing the end of the motorway with only a few miles to reach Peewit Caravan Site where we will be meeting up with our friends in the NPCCC.
We have been lucky enough to beat the accident near Cambridge but at last all vans due in today have now arrived.
The site is looking good and the weather forecast is promising. A room on site has been made available to us and we will almost certainly be making good use of it in the evenings.
The sun continues to shine and members take advantage of the good weather to visit the surrounding area and Derrick and Christine celebrate their Wedding Anniversary on Thursday.
Friday sees Len's birthday and a coffee morning with cakes and a rendering of Happy Birthday was enjoyed by all.
Following coffee most of the ladies adjourned to Vera's awning where, under the supervision of Lyn, lamps were produced using empty wine bottles and crafting materials. What a great idea and many laughs ensued.
A delicious Fish and Chip dinner was arranged in the meeting room by the Marshals followed by the infamous Chinese Auction. A lot of stealing and hiding took place with not everyone ending up with an item of their choice!
During the evening we were all saddened to learn of the passing of Cyril Dagg earlier that day. Cyril was a lovely man and a real gentleman and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts are with Chris at this sad time. Chris has subsequently told me that it would have been their 70th Wedding Anniversary on 24th September!
Tuesday saw the Boules Competition and cream tea followed by evening social get together in the meeting room. Crib, Five Crowns and numerous other games were enjoyed and it was good to welcome Richard and Helen Pitt for the evening and catch up on news. Vera was the eventual winner of the Boules and commiserations go to Percy who was the runner up.
The last evening saw us all at local pub for a final meal before hitching up and heading off home on Thursday morning.
Many thanks to Tony and Lyn and their Assistants Derrick and Chris for a really great Rally.
