Lechlade Rally 2013

The site chosen by Steve and Yvonne Jones was very close to the River Thames and was level and all grass. The usual facilities were available and of a good standard.

A five minute walk got you over the river into the centre of Lechlade where there was a selection of shops to meet the basic needs, but with a few specialist shops, including a Xmas shop. The small market square featured two events during our stay, Saturday, an Italian Market and Sunday a Food and Drink Fayre for local producers. The latter had large selection of stalls and goods, to help expand the waistline.

The rally commenced on Thursday evening with six units on site. We had an evening meal that, for a small fee, Steve and Yvonne had prepared. They both have a catering background and with their knowledge, equipment and technique produced a first class three course meal for all of us. This was eaten at tables in a small marquee that was the rally hospitality suite !

Saturday was a Fish and Chip night, again in the marquee, with the meal supplied by the local Lechlade chippie. Some quizzes and games followed as entertainment.

Monday evening was an American Supper in the marquee followed by the raffle draw and the results of the rally quiz.

The rally was not all about food and drink and there were several interesting places to visit in the nearby area, including the Source of the Thames. There were many opportunities for country walks and of course, riverside walks. The weather was very kind to us and helped make the rally a memorable success.

This was Steve and Yvonne’s maiden rally and we believe that everyone present will agree that it was a great success.

For added excitement to the rally, one night in the early hours thieves broke into the site’s secure(!!) caravan storage compound and stole a large twin axle caravan. They towed it through a fence, through a hedgerow and across an adjacent field onto the main road.

We were all asleep in our vans about 80 yards from this and heard nothing.
