Milestone Birthday in the Cotswolds

Alderton, Glos.

16 - 18 October 2009


The rally was held at Winchombe C&C Club Site, Brooklands Farm, Alderton. Gloucestershire. There were about 30 vans at Winchombe which is surrounded by beautiful views and was very peaceful and relaxing. We were celebrating Lyn Phillips 50th birthday and also celebrated Nina Pilot's and Joan Schofield's birthday, Roy Tomlinson's 200th rally and Carol and Alec Thomas's 45th wedding anniversary.

We had the use of the on site hall on Friday evening and Rosemarie Bird made a lovely cake. On Saturday evening we returned to the hall that had been beautifully decorated with "50" banners all in different colours. Mike Cartwright was the M.C. and looked after all the music and the glitter ball. We had a lovely American Supper then Lyn cut the beautiful cake she had made and we all had a glass of fizz

On Sunday morning we had flag and Paul Phillips made the presentation to Roy Tomlinson for reaching his 200th rally.

Many thanks to all our hardworking marshals Lyn and Paul Phillips and Jeanette and Michael Cartwright for making the rally one to remember.
