Please ensure you check your centre registration details online at the caravan clubs website www.caravanclub.co.uk/local-groups or by contacting East Grinstead. This is especially important close to the AGM if you wish to speak, vote, stand for committee or propose or second a notice of motion.

15th November - The East Kent Centre will always encourage members with children and grandchildren to attend rallies and take full advantage of the relative safe and spacious environment to play in. It is a credit to members and their children, that complaints about youth playing and damage to property are extremely rare. Many established members are aware of the East Kent Centre rules 13 (Ball games must not be played near parked caravans) and rule 15a (Bicycles must not be ridden on site), however this is not the case for all members. The intent of these rules are not about stopping children having fun but to avoid embarrassing accidents to expensive outfits when they are playing on site. The committee respectively asks all members with children to ensure they do not ride bikes / scooters or play games that have the potential to cause damage, near parked caravans. Reflecting on these rules at the last committee meeting, it was agreed that many sites have suitable space away from caravans which are safe for bikes / scooters to be ridden. As long as the marshal has not received a specific instruction from the land owner, the committee see no reason why this space can not be used.
