Leicestershire Centre Committee 2020-2021

Kevin Taylor with Sharon

Chairman

Well, as I start my second year as Chairman of the Centre, I truly hope that 2021 proves to be a vast improvement on 2020. When we started off  last year we all pulled together as a Committee and finalised what promised to be a great programme. Who could have predicted what was to come in the form of  Covid 19 and eventually the whole season was disrupted with only a handful of Socially Distanced rallies surviving the chop.

As we prepare for next year, we still can’t be sure of what the situation will be  like and if we will still have to run rallies under Covid restrictions,but we are grateful to Tony for putting together a varied programme that we hope will run unhindered.

Most rallies have Marshalls on, however there are still a few which need covering, so could I ask you to consider giving your time for one weekend in the year and to volunteer to take one of the remaining rallies.

Gary Brewin with Andrea

Vice Chairman

As I start my second year as Vice Chairman, I seriously hope that 2021 will be better all round for everyone, and we can get back to normality in every way.

Whilst talking of 2021, it’s never too early to think about joining the committee for next year, if I am fortunate enough to take over from Kevin, it would be great to have some fresh faces and ideas joining me to move the Centre forward. Please contact myself or other committee members to see what is involved, and how you can help build on the solid platform that we currently enjoy.

As ever, please keep an eye open for new venues, both weekend and Holiday sites, please let Rally Secretary Tony know, as we can never have too many.

Finally  Andrea and I wish everyone a happy and safe touring year.

Andy Haigh with Jackie

Secretary

After a very difficult 2020 the Committee has decided to stay on for the forthcoming year in the hope that by the next AGM, some new faces will appear to continue our work for the future of the Centre. 

No-one wants to see the Centre fold bacause of lack of commitment from its Members, so please think long and hard. We have done our bit, now it’s someone elses turn.

The Rally Book for 2021 will be a digital version on this website.

The Committee intend to continue making Leicestershire a Centre to be proud of and we welcome all current, new and ‘lapsed’ members to the rally field.

Tony Tyler with Jane

Rally Secretary

After 16 years since I first went on committee I now find myself as Rally Secretary, a role which I relish. So if you’ve any ideas for a rally I’m always at the end of phone, tinternet or out on the rally field, not on the darkside but in our motorhome.

Committee

Mark Exton with Michelle

Web Admin

In my 2nd stint on the committee of the Leicestershire Centre (previously Advertising) I have been what can only be politely described as, gifted through a unanimous vote of my committee colleagues the role of web admin. My role encompasses the creation and updates to the new Leicestershire centre web presence. Following a challenging start in the compilation and deployment of a replacement website in record time, we intend to build on the content and features in the coming year.

Rachel Hughes with Carl

Advertising

My aim this year is to advertise the joy of rallying to all members so we can try to increase rally attendance, along with selling advertising in the rally book to cover costs.  I will also be assisting Andy by recording rally attendances.

Andy Warne with Erene

Social Secretary

I have returned to serve on the committee and  I hope to help the members have some good rallies. Whilst everyone on the committee does what is required my primary role is as your social secretary, therefore if anyone sees any  entertainers or acts which you think your fellow members would enjoy please let me know
