YOUR REGION AND LOCAL CENTRE NEED YOU

Did you know that the Local Centres and Region are organised and run by members of the Club, just like you and me? Without these members, who volunteer their time, the local centres and region would not exist.

It is now coming to that time of year when the centres and region each hold their own Annual General Meeting (AGM) where members are elected to form the centre officers and committee. For a centre or region to exist it must have a Chairperson, a Secretary and a Treasurer (each of these positions must held by a different member). All positions become vacant at the AGM, but members can seek re-election.

It is usual that the Chairperson serves a maximum of the 3 consecutive terms (years) in office, if re-elected each year, and then the vice-Chairperson (if there is one) is elected to move up to Chairperson.

There are 11 Local Centres in the Northern Region. These Centres organise events and rally’s throughout the year, many in places you would not normally be able to go to, and many rally’s are organised to coincide with local events, festivals and carnivals.
These Centres need your help to come forward and volunteer to form the committees needed to organise the events for us all to enjoy.

Anyone who wishes more detail about the Northern Region please contact the Secretary Mrs Sylvia Moran on northernregionsec@hotmail.co.uk. You must reside within the Northern Region area (Cumbria, Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland or Yorkshire) to be elected to office.

For further details about Centre committees please contact their Centre Secretary. Links to each Centre can be found at www.northernregion.co.uk – You must be registered to that local centre to join their committee.

Chairlady’s Message

Dear Members and Visitors.

Hello and welcome to the Northern Region of the Caravan and Motorhome Club website.

A brief introduction, my name is Sandra Wright and I have been elected Chairlady of the Northern Region to which I’m honoured.

I have been a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club East Yorkshire Centre for the past 30 years, serving on their committee in various rolls from 2004 – 2013 and Chairperson 2013 – 2016

The past year has been a challenging and difficult year for us all with the Corona virus Pandemic.   With the Country going into lockdown our Club Sites closed, rallies and Celebration rallies all cancelled and our outdoor and social activities came to a temporary stop.  However by adhering to the Government Guidelines and following the Road Map Easing us out of lockdown, our lives should soon get back to some form of new normality.

The Celebration Rallies have been re scheduled; please keep checking the web sites for further information.

May I thank the Officers, Delegates and The Governance Team at Caravan and Motorhome Club who are constantly working together to ensure members are safe and well whilst on a rally.  Safety is our priority.

I’m looking forward to my 1st year as Northern Region Chairlady and meeting as many of you as possible over the next year.

Take Care, Stay Safe and Happy Rallying

Sandra Wright
