N.B. CHANGE OF CHRISTMAS RALLY DATE
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances our Christmas Rally will now be 6th-8th December
16 vans arrived at South End School for our firework rally – 14 vans Nene Valley, 1 East Mids and 1 Chiltern. As the school was on half term holiday we were able to arrive at 3.00 p.m. well before it was dark. Friday evening was the usual catch-up in the hall with discussions as to whether the fireworks would be cancelled at the last minute like last year. Saturday dawned with showers on and off for the whole day. Once again Wetherspoons was the in-place to be seen at lunchtime. Yet another Committee meeting in the afternoon to decide on Christmas formalities etc. Ann wasn’t feeling too good so decided to call it a day and return home late Saturday afternoon – hope you’re feeling better now Ann. Everyone arrived in the hall at 7.00 p.m. on Saturday evening to wait for the start of the fireworks as there were no cancellation notices anywhere. It was lovely to see Geraldine who had arrived by car for the evening only just having had her van repaired. After a wait of about an hour a huge bang heralded the start of the firework display, and what a display it was – it had to be one of the best Rushden has ever done. Back in the hall for the most delicious soup and hot dogs provided and expertly cooked by our stewards Sandra and Peter. Sunday arrived lovely and sunny for our departure home.
Our last rally of the year will be our Christmas rally back at South End School with a professional entertainer for the evening.
Nene Valley wish all members a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
