Bank Farm Rally No. 1963

Bank Farm Spring Bank Holiday:

(24th May– 2nd June 2019)

Well what a great 9 days that was!!! This was the first Holiday Rally David and I have ever marshalled and although it was difficult with my leg and very busy it was great to see people enjoy themselves so much.

We had over 45 caravans, motorhomes, campers & tents on the Bank Holiday weekend, with 5 first time members.  There were over 10 members at the event from other centres in Wales and not forgetting those that travelled across the bridge from England.

A big thank you to Mike Webb, who towed the Marquee down from Dunvant and returned it on the last day for us.  Also, thanks to all who helped erect the marquee and dismantle it, without your help we could not of had the entertainment that we had for the week.  Thankfully, it was dry for most of the week apart from the Wednesday. 

There was something going on every night, if not in the marquee, there was entertainment in the clubhouse at Bank Farm.  The Bingo seemed to be enjoyed by many most nights (especially the children), along with the quiz and competitions mainly run by Steve.  Thank you Steve 😊

The Bank Holiday Sunday was a very special treat, with live entertainment by the fabulous ‘Jenny Lee’ singing and allowing members old and new to belt some songs out on the karaoke.  David at this point was getting very tired and seemed to take a liking to my wheelchair and use it as his mode of transport, on and off the dance area (those that attended will know what I’m talking about!!!). 😊

The ‘American Night’ on the second Friday night also seemed a great success with David organising the Karaoke.  Some great voices heard that night 🎼🎤🎼. Thanks to all who provided a bite to eat.

Until next time, keep safe & happy rallying!

    What a fun filled week we had in Bank Farm, Gorgeous location, well organised, lovely weather 90% of the time, which is a bonus. The whole family (and extras) had a great time with the Entertainment, Quiz, Bingo and Games. We met many new friends here and already we are making our first batch of homemade wine thanks to Debbie and Martin (The Un attachables Ha Ha)
    Still can’t believe you went ahead to marshal this event Rhian with your leg in such a bad way but with David and of course Steve to help with the running around everything was fabulous, looking forward to the next one in August. Thanks again Sharon & Andrew

    Amazing rally, with amazing company. Really well organised and so much fun. The highlight for me had to be Andrew and Sharon’s humongous curry on the BBQ!

    I echo Sharon and can’t believe you took on the rally with your leg being in such bad shape, but fair play to David he was top entertainer in your chair hehe..

    It was lovely to see so many new faces and a lovely atmosphere all round.

    Massive thanks to you, David and Steve for their help and an all round awesome week.

    Think we’re all really looking forward to the August rally. Love & hugs Vicki, Amelia & Fin xXx

  5. Jan Thomas says:

    Well organised with lots of people helping out. Friendly and approachable marshals and assistants. Great entertainment and competitions. Lovely family atmosphere. Thank you Rhian and David Watts

  6. Beverley and Spencer Edwards says:

    Well done Rhian and David Watts, and assistant Steve, great well organised rally. Had a lovely time stayed over the Bank Holiday and then returned for the following weekend as we were enjoying so much. Great entertainment on the Sunday night with the singer Jenny Lee, and then the following weekend with the buffet night and karaoke. The weather was generally good, nice site with great views and clubhouse. Again thanks to Rhian, David and Steve for working so hard running a great event

  7. Martin Powell says:

    Keep up the good work x

    We were only there for 2 nights but enjoyed it very much. Very well organised with lots of planned activities. Thank you Rhian, David and Steve

  9. David Miller says:

    A big thank you to Rhian & David for making us feel welcome on our first rally with West Wales Centre. I would also like to extend thanks to Steve for him entertaining the kids and making Rhys feel at ease. Between David serenading Rhian and Steve’s bingo calling we had a very entertaining week. Looking forward to future rallies with you guys.

    A big thank you to all marshalls for a fantastic week. The site was lovely and the activities put on by the marshalls were brilliant, shame more people on the rally did not support the effort the marshalls went to. We were made welcome by everyone and, despite knowing no one, we felt very much at home. Us and our friends travelled from over the bridge to join the rally and will definitely join another in the future. We loved how relaxed the whole rally was. Thank you again xxx

    Thank you so much David, Rhian and Steve for a fantastic 9 nights. There was something for everyone. Myself and my Husband attended with a 5 year old and a 14 year old and fun was had by all. Our 5 year old was counting down the hours until bingo and we had a dance with our teenager what else could we ask for. Thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome

  12. Andrew Thomas says:

    Thanks to the Watt’s and Steve for two fantastic weekends. We took a Guest family with us in their tent and they enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the entertainment tent so much they are now looking for a caravan. What better recommendation could you have.
    Thanks again
