 Baston Rally 2021

What a difference a year makes! Last year we were all locked down, with few rallies able to operate, we were hoping that all restrictions had been lifted by the time this rally went ahead

No - masks were worn in the facilities, but at least we were able to chat outside our vans and in the rally field.

13 vans came to Baston, given a very warm welcome by Steve Jones who beat Peter, every time to the gate.

Thursday was dry and the welcome evening, held at the hut, and outside was enjoyed by all. Unfortunately Steve had a heart attack that night and was rushed to Peterborough Hospital, then Papworth Hospital. Operation on the following Wednesday which was a success. Steve is determined to be at Fakenham for 2022.

Members were off and about the area, or stayed and relaxed on site. We managed to visit, Grimsthorpe Castle, NGS gardens, Spalding and of course garden centres.

Most days started dull, but by the time of the coffee evenings most were dry and sunny, which meant we could sit outside and chat. We had a bring your own food evening with puddings supplied, plus a cheese and wine evening. Or just a sit and chat evenings.

Every night we had a visit by young hare,which was a delightful event, he even came to wave good bye as we left the site.

On the last evening, we went to The Goat pub for a very enjoyable meal.

We would like to thank Peter & Sue for running this rally, not an easy thing to take on in these strange times. Also thanks to Gobur members for attending and making this a successful rally, plus Ron and Ross for caring for Steve & those who helped pack Steve's van, which has been kindly stored on site by the owners.
