Bourton-on-the-Water Rally 2011

We arrived for our first visit to Field Barn Park in glorious sunshine and were welcomed by Kate and Malcolm Smith, the organisers, and their helpers Lorna and Pat Veitch.

The site, just outside Bourton-on-the-Water, is beautiful and is run on environmentally friendly lines, whilst providing first class facillities. The lack of lighting meant we had beautiful moon and star lit nights.

Kate and Malcolm had decided on evening get togethers, in the indispensible marquee, for coffee, catching up, buying raffle tickets from Mary and hearing about what was on offer in the neighbourhood - no shortage of places to visit.  Everyone visited Bourton-on-the-Water, one of the prettiest places in the area and lovely to see the local children playing in the fast flowing, shallow river - obviously a tradition of long standing.  Many people visited the model village and motor museum in the village. Stow-on-the-Wold was just up the road and Moreton-in-Marsh just a little further on, both worth a visit and others travelled further afield to Cheltenham, Cirencester and Swindon.

There were lovely local walks which many people took advantage of and even the temporarily less able of us were able to enjoy a short walk and drink in the fabulous views.

Kate and Malcolm organised a fish and chip supper on Saturday night held (very snugly!) in the marquee.  Food from Bourton fish and chip shop was delicious and desserts were provided by the organisers.  While on the subject of food, the site owner stocked a small freezer in the laundry room with wonderful local ice creams which most took advantage of, leaving payment in the honesty box provided.

Tuesday came all too quickly and we drove to the nearby village of Great Rissington to enjoy an evening meal at The Lamb Inn.  Delicious food and good company.  Our Chairman, Alan Barnes, thanked Kate and Malcolm and Lorna and Pat and these thanks were echoed by all.  A very enjoyable rally.
