65TH WELSH NATIONAL
FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Having just arrived back from
the Welsh National I can honestly say I’m overwhelmed by
the support and help the North Wales Centre received, the attendance
from centres across Wales and beyond made everything worthwhile
and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.
I would especially like to thank
the North Wales Centre committee, working party and helpers for
all their hard work and commitment to make the 65th Welsh National
such a success.
A huge thanks goes to those of
you who marshalled, refereed, judged, officiated and organised
events. The Caravan and Motorhome Club is a community and it just
goes to show that when we get together anything is possible.
Congratulations to you all.
I can’t tell you how proud
myself and Claire are, you have all represented us in the most
amazing way. I can’t thank you all enough for all of your
hard work, I know it’s been tough but I really think we
pulled off our aim to provide a traditional fun packed Welsh National.

shown what can be achieved through hard work and dedication to
