Excellent feedback from all attending this popular rally. Hope to add pictures to the Gallery shortly.
Forest View Cannock Chase 25th August – 1st September
Another Good turnout and new areas to explore. Not as many deer as expected, but some were certainly spotted in the area. Good visits to Penkridge market. Apple Pies baked by the site owner were a real treat for all. Photos by David Lownds
Acre Hill Farm rally 23rd – 30th April 2021
What a great start to the rally season after our release from the Covid lock down!
A good turn out, excellent weather and a well cared for site with free range Duck & Chicken eggs readily available.
Quite hot during the daytime although we had some very cold nights. Our thanks to Vicki,the site owner and Kevin & Christine for taking this on as their first rally. What an excellent job they did. Thanks also to Barry and Maureen for giving them full support.
Photos to be added to Gallery page soon.
Carol & I would also like to thank all involved in this rally, from the planning stage, organising, setting up and especially for the pie day! Thanks also to everyone who helped push, pull and manoeuvre our caravan onto its pitch due our failed motor mover. It’s been a bit of a saga, too long to relate here, but very happy & relieved to say, that it’s now fixed (fingers crossed).
A note from Jim and Pauline
This was our first rally following the long lock down. We would like to say a big thank you to Kevin & Christine for marshalling their first rally, for us all to enjoy. With supporting marshals, Barry & Maureen there were a few hiccups getting there but soon forgotten. It had been along time coming for me and I wasn’t disappointed. I was given the best pitch with gorgeous views and a real heat trap. It was lovely to meet up with friends. I also won the bingo. Kevin & Christine worked really hard to make sure we all had a good time from bingo to raffles, but most of all, organising the social distanced pie lunch. The weather was brilliant to so we were able to sit out and enjoy this. We had a lovely time. Pauline & Jim (Photos to be added soon).
Dale Hey rally – 15th-22nd October 2020
Well, the AGM rally at Dale Hey was certainly different this year! Lots of members looking forward to getting away after the earlier lock downs, due to the Covid situation. Then the round of second restrictions started to kick in just as we were due to get away. The phone was red hot with cancellations, much to ours and the sites disappointment. Those that did manage to attend, enjoyed it in individual ways, thanks to social distancing. We even managed several days of sunny weather, good enough to sit out and enjoy distanced company. No opening or closing flag, or brewing up for each other. The outside caterer which we had again booked, was pleased to cater for us, even with the reduced numbers. They delivered our hotpot and pudding in individual containers and the committee members delivered it round the vans. Photo’s will be shown on the Gallery page as usual via this link.
Fingers crossed that next year is better than 2020.
It was also nice to be able to welcome new members who, in turn, have expressed their experience of the rally below:
“We both really enjoyed our 1st week rallying with you, even though things were strange with Covid. You’re all such a friendly, welcoming bunch. We very much look forward to rallying with you in 2021 & beyond”.
David and Carol Lownds
Avon Banks, Pershore rally – 2nd-13th September 2020
An excellent turnout as usual and we experienced really good weather. Social distancing ruled out many of the activities we would normally enjoy, but it didn’t prevent sitting around and chatting from a safe distance. Always somewhere new to explore in this area and very welcome to most of us as our first outing of the current year. Photo’s can be seen here.
Dale Hey AGM Rally – 17th-24th October 2019
The rally was once again well attended, in spite of a few unavoidable last minute cancellations.
Mike and Sylvia, supported by Alan and Ann Jones, put on an excellent rally and kept everyone entertained.
After the AGM, a supper of Hotpot followed by Apple & Blackberry crumble was enjoyed by all.
Our marshals then kept everyone entertained with a raffle, quiz, bingo, the dice game and Mr. & Mrs. competition.
Following the meal at the Black Bull, where the closing Flag was held, Mike and Sylvia were presented with a token of our appreciation.
We are sure that everyone in the club wishes them the very best as they enter this new phase in their activities.
Below is a message from them both.
Message from Mike & Sylvia
We would like to thank everybody in the Freedom Caravan Club who attended our AGM rally at Ribchester.
This is our last rally as we are now retiring from caravanning. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves.
The flowers are beautiful and the bottle of wine we will enjoy. We will sadly miss you all and will try to keep in touch.

Pershore rally – 28th August-9th September
Thanks once again to our marshals Barry, Maureen, Graham and Christine.
This is my favourite rally, just love coming here. We enjoyed good weather and the view of the river Avon is so relaxing.
Fun and games with good company. The marshals work extremely hard to make sure everyone has a good time.
From opening flag to afternoon cream teas, to eating out.
What a Sunday lunch the marshals had booked for our end of rally meal!
Such a beautiful hidden away venue with stunning views over the River Avon, owner so friendly and meal exceptional.
We would also like to thank the new site owners, Lisa and John, who made us extremely welcome.
Jim and Pauline
