Old Leake Rally 2010

We arrived on Thursday at a lovely site in the Lincolnshire countryside with the sun shining brightly. We were greeted by four welcoming faces - organisers - Sylvia and Keith with helpers - Lorna and Pat - to whom we must say ‘thank you’ for a most enjoyable and entertaining rally.

This site is central to many places of interest and we made good use of visiting historic houses, churches etc during our stay here. Some members visited Frampton Marshes and Gibraltar Point for bird watching whilst others went into picturesque towns and villages.

We met in the evenings and on one occasion, as this was the very first caravan rally that had been organised on this site, the owners, Steve and Margaret, brought along six bottles of champagne to celebrate. We had a jolly time as you can imagine! We had a group photograph taken with Steve - you will see this on the website! Each evening there were the usual notices given and outside the marquee we had a large Jenka for the steady handed members and a quoit game for those with a good eye to throwing rings on a numbered board.

The Heckington Show took place on the Saturday and Sunday of the rally and many of us went. This show had so much to offer and was an excellent day out. We had a quiz on ‘Cinema and Television’ This was won by Angela and Derek and Mary ran the usual raffle.

On the last Monday we had a very nice meal at a local pub called the Duke of Wellington.

Tuesday morning came all too soon and once again we packed up and said our ‘good-byes’ and left with lovely memories of an excellent rally with good friends. Thank you again Sylvia and Keith, Lorna and Pat.
