Carlisle Rally 2015


On arrival we were greeted by Steve, Yvonne, Dickie and Annette with a very welcome drink. The quiet site was flat and very spacious with excellent facilities. After everyone had pitched we were served a super pre-ordered meal prepared by Steve and Yvonne, making our rally get off to a brilliant start in a convivial atmosphere. There were plenty of seconds for everyone.

The next few days were spent visiting the many local attractions including walking part of Hadrian s Wall, the Roman remains at Housesteads, Carlisle and the coast of the Solway Firth. A must for anyone visiting the area in future, or even passing nearby is The Houghton Hall Garden Centre which besides a lovely restaurant, houses the most spectacular “A World in Miniature Exhibition”. This is a breathtaking exhibition! The incredible detail has to be seen to be believed and leaves you stunned.

Saturday saw some of us at Carlisle Airport to view the iconic Vulcan flyover. This was an emotional event with the crowds cheering and applauding.

Saturday was also Steve and Yvonne’s 45th wedding anniversary. They had prepared a sumptuous buffet which their best man and his partner joined us for the celebrations, making it a memorable evening for them. We had so many dishes to choose from we were spoilt for choice!..The food was excellent, as of course was the company. We even had “doggy bags” to take back to our vans!

Our last night saw us at The Brampton Golf Club for our farewell meal, the food was excellent and enjoyed by us all. Yvonne had to make a return visit early the next morning as we had left without paying the bill!

Many thanks must go to Steve, Yvonne, Dickie and Annette for all their hard work for providing us with a very happy rally, THANK YOU.
