The usual warm welcome awaited all
attending the 11th Gobur AGM at Fakenham. The pitch
'detail' excelled themselves and vans sprang up everywhere. The near
westerly gale caused small problems but awnings were eventually raised
and safely pegged down. By Saturday morning 53 units were present.
Members met as usual in the Long Bar on
Thursday evening where old friendships were renewed and new
friendships nurtured. The Rally programme was presented and new
members welcomed. Coffee mornings were loud and enjoyable; afterwards
people dispersed around beautiful Norfolk countryside to make the most
of sunny days.
Saturday dawned brightly and most folk
walked to Wensum Lodge for the AGM. The meeting began on time and
Malcolm took us briskly through the agenda which included retirement
and election of officers. Presentations were made and the meeting
closed on the hour.
We returned to the Lodge in the evening and
enjoyed a carvery in the company of Richard and Mandy, Stephen and
Sandy. The fine evening enabled us again to walk to and from the
A small numbers of vans left during Sunday and Monday: their owners unfortunately missing the fantastic Hog Roast. It was chilly (even in doors) but the meal,wine and great humour warmed the cockles as the evening progressed.
Malcolm and Kate are to thanked for a brilliantly run rally. Their hard work and preparation hugely appreciated as was that of assistants David and Margaret and all other members who 'pitched in' when call upon to help.
