Hexham Rally 2016

Ten vans attended the rally, less than planned due to illness.

We were showered with a confetti of Silver Birch seeds scattered by the wind. Our arrival was greeted by our hosts Brenda & Alan Barnes, ably assisted by Margaret and Alan Shankster. On Thursday evening they announced what had been arranged for the rally.

A beetle drive was planned in Acomb Methodist church hall with a theme based on the head of Hadrian, the Roman Emperor responsible for Hadrian's Wall, just a few miles north of the site. Yvonne Jones won the prize for the highest score of 330 which she was delighted with. At half-time we had a fish & chip supper supplied from a fish & chip shop based in Hexham. This was excellent, not too much batter and nice quality fish and chips.

The book quiz was won by Yvonne & Steve after a tie-break throw of the dice with Dorothy & Terry Windsor. They were delighted with their second prize of the weekend.

Yvonne organized 'Mary's Raffle' for charity and raised a nice sum to go towards the final tally of Richard Moss's charity fund.

Our Monday evening meal was arranged at The Boatside Inn, Warden, a small village a few miles west of Acomb. The menu wasn't fancy but of very nice quality and excellent flavour, we can recommend it to anyone.

Unfortunately the meal wasn't attended by our hosts Brenda and Alan as they had to leave on Sunday morning for a hospital appointment on Monday. Margaret and Alan took over the reins running the rally, helped by Yvonne and Steve.

We wish Brenda well with her treatment.

On Tuesday morning we packed up in lovely sunshine for our homeward journey having had the driest rally so far this year!
