Sue’s Scribbles August 2010

Hi Guys,

First off just let me thank everyone for making our Grange Rally/Party Weekend such a great success.
To name a few:
Chris’s Dad who came with his tractor and re cut the grass after our friendly farmer Paul had cut all the long stuff and bailed it all.
Norman who came and ran over it with the mower to make sure it was nice and short to walk on (it’s amazing how this stuff grows)!
Tom and Jill who made the Entertainments Barn, Fridges and Freezer fit to use. They were so good, this was despite their own house being under considerable renovation, but they gave up their time and cleaned like ‘gooduns’.
My Chris and Paul for all the effort they put in to make sure everything was on ‘song’ the night before.
Chris and Keith who organise the Boules Tournament every year and provide the Trophies.


All the Marshall’s: Chris, Paul, Brian and Norm. (Dave, Brian and Charlie who cleaned up Monday morning before they went off)
Sheena’s Tombola Team: Jean and Jill
Judges: Dave Cook, Chris Haigh and ofcourse our lovely Owen Ward who just loves Morris Minors (Travellers are his passion) and is determined to buy his Mum one, one day!
If I have missed anyone please forgive me.
I just wish I had, had my pedometer on, to see how many miles I walked up and down!
The last thanks are to all the folks who come and camp and support us every year. ‘Tent City’ is growing!!!! Even the original camp kids are turning into adults now and still want to keep coming……..

Chris, Lotti and I went off the following weekend to the North Wales Rally.

 When I became Area 1 Liaison Officer I did promise to go to all the Area 1 Rallies that I could. Normally on this weekend for the past eight years we have gone to Revesby in Lincolnshire with the rest of the ‘gang’. (not Area 1) This year we booked into a dog friendly B&B in Trefwid called Winifred’s Rest. This is run by Gwen. Gwen has her roots in Singapore but is now firmly settled in North Wales. Gwen’s rescue Westie is called Dumpling and lives a lovely and carefree life. I cannot believe how dog friendly North Wales is, Lotti was fussed and welcomed in every shop we went in, by far different to around and about here, even a scruffy Garden Centre on our doorstep (I won’t name and shame) told us that even though Chris was carrying Pebbles she was a ‘Health and Safety’ risk. GET A GRIP PEOPLE!

I drove the whole weekend in Tommi my Moggy Tourer around 550 miles, Chris was very good as a co pilot (don’t forget he usually drives), and for once didn’t  criticize my driving too much but helped me on to motor ways and through other hazard’s. The drive down on Friday was wet and I mean wet we had the hood up and it leaks – I mean it really leaks, we looked like lace curtains in the front as we tried to block up the gaps with kitchen roll, it was all good fun!!!

We really chilled out for the whole weekend after the frantic weekend before of our own Rally it was nice to not have any responsibilities. We took in the sights of Llandudno and Conwy on the Saturday which turned out sunny and warm. The Rally day unfortunately wasn’t as forgiving and it did remain overcast and rainy, both Ron  and Dave from NW Branch assured me that is was the first wet Rally in 18 years – I did initially brag that every Area 1 Rally I have been to as Liaison Officer the sun has shone…….will I ever live it down???? Having said that we were really warmly received and we had a great day – who cares about a few drops of rain – it was a great day and we caught up with lots of friends. Sunday we are off again to the North East Lancashire Branch Rally so hopefully the weather will be a little kinder, but more about that next time.

Don’t forget next meeting is our Branch BBQ at the Grange 7.30pm 9th August

The Scarecrow Festivsal Burton Fleming is on August Bank Holiday Monday 30th August. Usual parking. Please make the effort as this is all for charity. Bring along a Scarecrow friend if you wish!

Bay Run – Beverley to Filey Bay 5th September – lunch included – ring me for further details.
