Dear Ralliers,

We’d like to thank you all for your support in Marjorie’s final months and indeed in the 8 years since Geoff’s passing.  It was a great comfort to all of us to be surrounded by so many people offering support and help.

East Kent meant so much to Marjorie over the last 40 years or so. We’ll be forever grateful to all those who’s friendship was so valued.

The turnout to celebrate Marjorie’s life at the crematorium was a sight to behold. Standing room only and a car park full of 4x4’s showed that the masses of East Kent ralliers had turned out.

Thanks to all that donated to the Pilgrims Hospice who cared for Marjorie so well in the last two weeks of her life. The donations raised £760, which will be greatly appreciated by the hospice.

Thanks again for the support and the friendship shown to us all over this difficult time.

Our best wishes go to you all.

18th January - Many rallies are situated in remote locations, increasing the response time for ambulance support and therefore reducing the likelihood of survival of any member suffering a cardiac arrest. Minutes can therefore literally make the difference between life and death so the officers and committee are pleased to announce the  purchase of a potential life saving Automated External Defibrillator (AED), which will now be available on most EKC rallies.

18th January - Members who have a Dart charge account are advised to check that they are being correctly charged. Members have reported being double charged and being charged the wrong toll fee.
