Branch National Rally
Jul 19 @ 14:00 – Jul 21 @ 16:00

 

It is with great pleasure that I can announce the 2019 National Rally will be held in Wales.

The facilities at the club are excellent. The main building is split into an upstairs concert room and a downstairs bar with conservatory. The club has a kitchen and will be cooking breakfast, lunch and evening meal. There is also a local Indian restaurant close by that will give a discount to the Riders.
There will be 24hr access to showers and toilets, also a tea/coffee room that will also have 24hr access.

There is sufficient secure hard standing for parking of the motorcycles (camping is on the practice pitch and therefore motorcycles will not be allowed by the tents.We also have an area for those who use a campervan/motorhome. Ticket Price £20 in advance, £25 on the gate as normal, there will be musical entertainment on the Friday and Saturday Night, A Ride-out for Saturday :ride: (we have a number of routes, which one will be decided by the weather, as you all know the sun always shines in Wales)

Phil T will be organising rideouts on some great riding roads and for the race fans amongst you the (in)famous Aberdare Park Race meeting is the same weekend, about 20min ride north from the rally site. http://www.aberdare-park-road-races.co.uk. The local racers call it AberSCARE.

Fancy Dress Theme – As the Rally is being held at a rugby club, it has been decided to have a ‘SPORTS’ theme. Use your imagination, there’s more to sport than Moto GP and football.

COVID-19 – update on the Annual Conference – sent on behalf of the National Chairman

Dear Member,

Further to my recent email about the Legion’s response and planning around the Covid-19 pandemic, I wanted to provide you an update on our Annual Conference.

I am sorry to say that we have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s Annual Conference in its current form. We will be exploring other options and next steps and will keep you informed of our plans around this. We have been considering this as the Covid-19 situation has been unfolding, balancing the desire to mitigate any cost of cancellation with a timely decision.

The Government has been very clear in their advice on self-isolating and social distancing, and as per my recent email to you, we are strongly encouraging all our members to follow the advice given.

I know many of you will be disappointed by this, as am I, but we really feel it is in the best interests of our members, volunteers and employees’ health and wellbeing.

With regards to the VE Day commemorations, we will let you know when we have more information from the Government and what they are planning to do given the pandemic.

We will continue our discussions and planning for how we can support our local communities through our operations and members.  We will of course continue to keep you updated as we work through this challenging time.

Please do your best to share this information with all of your members, to help keep everyone up to date.

Best wishes,

Una Cleminson

Chairman, Board of Trustees
