Bank Farm – Spring Bank Holiday Rally (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!
