Doddington Rally 2017

Ten Gobur caravans joined together at Fields End Water, including four new couples who have recently joined the Club - Sheila and Brian, Fiona and Dave, Roy and Ally and Rob and Josie. The gathering gave them chance to meet members and to get to know how the club operates.

We arrived, after a very rainy journey, in fine but overcast weather and were soon joined by the other members. The weather all week was mixed, with quite a lot of sun but rain and blustery wind also. However as usual the weather didn't deter anyone from getting out and about in the area. There is lots to see in that part of the country and visits were made to March (where some of use enjoyed poking about in a large and interesting second hand shop), Chatteris, Huntingdon and St Ives amongst others. Ely had an "Open Weekend" when all attractions were free and some places of interest not usually open to the public were open to visit. It was also interesting to watch huge TV trailers and personnel arriving to start filming "The Royals" at the Cathedral. Some of us went to Whittlesey where an annual festival was taking place.

Wendy and Keith who had organised the Come and Join Us, brought their meeting tent with them and we were able to meet together during the evenings. This gave us a chance to catch up with old friends and to meet the new members. When the meeting tent had been taken down - to save doing this in the rain the next day - some of us joined Fiona and Dave in their awning, Rob brought his guitar, and an evening of music and conversation was greatly enjoyed.

Altogether this was a very enjoyable gathering and it was good to see so many new members. A big thank you to Wendy and Keith for their organisation.
