NEC Caravan Show Rally

Balsall Common, W Midlands

19-22nd Feb 2009


It was great to back at Balsall Common after a short break. Even the weather was good it was as though spring had suddenly decided it was time to wake up. We also had lovely sunsets in the evenings making beautiful pictures with the dark trees in the foreground.

We did go to the Caravan Show and it was nice to see some familiar faces as well as new caravans and plenty of gadgets.

We had tea and coffee in the tea tent on Thursday and Friday evening and on Saturday we went to the Scout Hall for a fish and chip supper paid for by Broad Lane Leisure. Ron and Maureen provided a delicious apple and custard for desert. We had flag and then a few words from Terry Milsom, our Chairman, followed by a presentation by our President, John Rowe, to Ron and Maureen Ward who were celebrating their 450th rally - what an achievement.

On Sunday we were back in the tea tent for tea and coffee and a chat before setting off for home.

Many thanks to our hard working marshals Ron and Maureen Ward and Mike and Chris Pitchford.
