I know it is late but Peter Smith has formally withdrawn his name from the vote for committee.

Peter was always been his intention to stand down next year and rather than block a younger member for just one year he has decided to go now. He will work with whoever takes over as Equipment Officer to ensure a proper handover of the duties and equipment. If anyone has facilities to store the Centre equipment for the future can they please let the committee know? His service will be recognised at the AGM.

Items For Sale

The safety and well being of our members and their

possessions is the committees primary concern.

There have been a couple of incidents at recent rallies and the committee with the full backing of the club have changed

Rule 15a with immediate effect from NOW

Bicycles must not be ridden on site.


- For the safety and consideration of others, the use of petrol, electrical and non-powered recreational ride on equipment

must be away from halls and the area where caravans are sited.

This rule follows the recent change to club site rule 13b

The change will be put forward as a notice of motion at the

AGM as a proposal to make permanent.

As explained at Saltwood, when discussed with the club

we found out that there has been a fatality on a

club site involving a 4 year old on a push bike so

unfortunately the risk is genuine.


 Change to Rule 15a

Carer’s FIRST was established as a project within Tonbridge VCS in 1991, by Carer’s who wanted to help others in a similar situation. In 1996 Carer’s FIRST took on charity status and became a registered not for profit organisation, number 1085430 and company limited by guarantee. In 2009 Carer’s FIRST became the parent company of Medway Carer’s Centre, a charity set up in 1991 by Carer’s, some of whom remain on the Board of Trustees today. The two charities merged fully in April 2013. By 2013, Carer’s FIRST were supporting over 5,000 Carers across South West Kent, North West Kent and Medway, providing information and support to carer’s of people who cannot manage by themselves through ill health, frailty, disability, mental health or substance misuse.


EKC 2018 Charity is ‘’Carers FIRST’’

New Rule 4. (Please Note)

Photography/videography may be taken at our Centre’s events and rallies. The Centre and Club may use any photograph(s) and/or video(s) they take that includes you, your party and/or outfit in all and any media, including printed and electronic publications, e.g. websites, or promotional materials, in the advertising of its goods or services. The photograph(s) and/or video(s) maybe stored for these purposes as well. If you do not want to appear in any shots, please advise the organiser if it relates to a specific event, or the Centre Secretary if for all events. They will do their best to accommodate this and ensure you are able to avoid the area being photographed/filmed.


 Change to Rule 4

Sarah Steward’s Black Belt Challenge in

aid of Carers First.

Sarah has been training at Black Belt Martial Arts Centre

for the last three years.

Now it’s time for her to undertake the Ultimate

Black Belt Kick Boxing Challenge!

The Challenge starts in December and starts with

4 weeks of self discipline training with a minimum of 8 miles swimming, 15 miles running, 20 miles walking,

30 miles cycling.

Every day a minimum of 100 sit ups,

100 push ups, and 100 squats.

The final day of the challenge involves five hours martial arts training, a long distance run and full contact sparring.

Then the final challenge - 1000 kicks and 1000 punches!

Participants are encouraged to raise money for a chosen

charity by asking people to sponsor them.

Sarah has chosen to fund raise for Carers First, which is this years chosen charity of the East Kent Centre.

Sarah is only too happy to contribute to the

EKC fund raising efforts.

Please make a donation at


Sarah will also have a sponsorship form at the

New Year rally for all the technophobes!

Rally Plan 2019

As time is pressing on there will be no further announcements regarding these Rallies until the Rally book becomes available at the beginning of 2019.

Sadly there are 5 Rallies without Marshals.

They are as follows:-

17th - 19th May - Oak & Ivy (Hawkhurst)

31st May - 2nd June - Maidstone Girls Grammar School

16th - 18th August - Reculver School

20th - 22nd September - Whymans Farm (Marden)

this is our Harvest Festival Rally where

we run our charity Auction.

28th Dec - 2nd Jan - Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey.

This is the New Year Rally 2018/19

If Marshals don't come forward by the 4th November 2018 these rallies WILL be cancelled and these events WILL NOT take place. As mentioned at the AGM these are two new sites for 2019, two sites used a few years ago and one site we revisited this year. If you would like to consider taking on one of these rallies please email me (rallysec@eastkentcentre.co.uk). It would be a shame to see the demise of two of our key rallies. Please support your centre, after all this is our hobby.

Thank you

Kim - Rally Secretary
