THE NORTH WALES CENTRE
The Centre was formed
in 1969 when we split from Cheshire and North Wales. We are one
of the largest of the 6 Welsh Centres in both membership and area.
We have borders with Cheshire, Shropshire and Powys and cover
the whole of the North Wales Coast, Anglesey, The Lleyn Peninsula
and the West Coast down to Aberdyfi.
The main purpose
of the North Wales Centre is to run rallies for members. They
include weekend rallies that can be themed or purely free and
easy, Bank Holiday rallies both in our own region and other parts
of the country, and holiday rallies from North Wales to Yorkshire
or down to Cornwall.
What is a
rally? Normal weekends start on Friday afternoon and
run till Sunday afternoon, they are usually just on farmers fields,
drinking water and a place to empty your toilet are provided,
sometimes we have electric hook up but not often, you can use
a generator if you wish to charge your battery, on arrival you
will be greeted by the rally officer and given any information
relevant to the rally such as any events that will be taking place
over the weekend, there are usually competitions for both children
and adults, we get together sometime on Friday evening for a chat
and to meet everyone, and then on Sunday morning we get together
again for “flag” where we have tea /coffee and biscuits
and competition results and prizes presented. On a themed rally
there may be sports including football/netball/volleyball, lawn
darts, boules and many other themes that rally officers may come
up with during the year. A long standing rally in North Wales
is the Llangollen rally which is run to coincide with the International
Eisteddfod at the beginning of July. This rally has been running
as long as the Centre.

We do our best to
cater for everyone however if you have any suggestions for improvement
please let us know by contacting via email any of the committee.
If you are a rallier
and think you would like to run a rally but don’t know where
to start please contact Steve the rally secretary: email@example.com
and he will be happy to help you find a venue, tell you exactly
what is involved and provide any assistance required. There is
a lot of fun to be had being a rally officer as well as just attending
If you look at the list of rallies you will see the same names
appearing as rally officers this is simply because we want to
keep the list as full as possible and at the moment new rally
officers are not coming forward. Please help if you can, you can
always start by being a co rally officer with a seasoned one to
get the experience.
