The Chairman
and Committee
welcome you to the
North Lancashire Centre of
The Caravan and Motorhome Club



This year owing to Covid 19 the committee has not been able to recruit new members to serve on committee. We are currently looking for a Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and committee members.

With this in mind the Committee have taken the decision to postpone the AGM which should have taken place on October 3rd 2020 until January 23rd 2021.

As we have stated on the website if we aren't able to form a committee The Centre will be put into hibernation and all rallies will be stopped.

We have also made tentative representations to South Lancashire Centre about a possible merger if a committee cannot be formed. If you want more information on joining the Committee please contact The Secretary by either sending a message or emailing



A message from our Chairman

Dear Ralliers, Hope you are all remaining safe and well during this ongoing time of uncertainty. We have now received an up date from The Executive Committee following their meeting last week and unfortunately due to the information received the decision has been taken by the Committee to cancel all rallies until January 2021 for the Health & Safety of our Ralliers. Due to the additional requirements now required to fall in line with the Government Guidelines and the Track and Trace systems it was felt that this was asking a lot of our volunteer rally officers running each rally to undertake and also take responsibility for, for example extensive Risk Assessments for each and every site along with other expectations. We hope you understand our position and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021 when we are hopefully seeing better times. Whilst writing we would also like to ask if there is anyone who would like to stand for the position of Secretary and for any other posts on the Committee. We are currently seeking to fill the position of Secretary as without it the Centre will cease. We obviously donít want this to happen and would welcome all nominations by September. Please see Rally book for details or alternatively contact myself or any other committee member for information. Again, we look forward to seeing you all in the near future and hope you continue to stay safe and well. Your Chairman and Committee.



Your Centre Needs You !!!

At the forthcoming AGM in October the Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and 2 Committee members will not be standing for re-election next year. What happens next you ask, well, quite simply if these positions arenít filled at the AGM the Centre will close, do you want that to happen? The Centre has to have a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer to operate. Currently we have over 2000 people in our Centre and we would hope that members would come forward to save the Centre from closure. If you are interested and want more information on any of the positions including Committee please contact the Secretary on or phone 07887706741. Just remember without a functioning Committee the CENTRE WILL CLOSE.

The Centre was formed in 1966 and runs events for you, it's members, in Lancashire and Cumbria throughout the year. Sadly many centre members do not attend rallies but have, for a number of years, still been sent a rally book each year. This is both costly and environmentally unfriendly as a pdf version of the rally book and details of all rallies are published on this website. It is hoped that most Centre and Club members have access to the internet either directly or through a family member or friend and that even without the Centre handbookcan still identify rallies they might like to attend.

In October 2018 this Centre changed it's approach to issuing handbooks and limited the posting of books to Centre members who rallied regularly and those new to the Centre.

Any Centre member who is not a regular rallier and therefore not in receipt of a book should contact the Centre Secretary.

We hope that you will join us during the year and if you have any queries do not hesitate to contact the Centre Secretary.


Chairman's message for 2020

As I enter my third year as Chairman of The North Lancashire Centre, I feel honoured to have been able to represent our centre at various events over the past twelve months, including being an honoured guest at both the South Lancashire and Northumberland Centres dinner dances. I have also attended Celebration Rallies of the North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Northumberland Centres, in addition to The Festival of The North and The National Rally. By promoting our centre at these events, we have seen many visitor centres joining us on North Lancashire rallies.

As in previous years we have an exciting rally programme for 2020 which includes old favourites and venues we haven’t visited for a while. This year we will be hosting The Regional AGM rally at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
During last year we recognised the need for online payments for rallies, BACS payments are now available for easier and faster bookings, please visit our website for further details or contact The Treasurer. As always, we are looking for new Rally Officers, Assistant Rally Officers and new venues to make our programme even more exciting, The Rally Secretary has venues available if you want to contact her.

Unfortunately, this year we say goodbye to Julie McAteer (Secretary) and Tony McAteer (Assistant Secretary) who have retired from committee after 2 years. I would like to thank them both for their hard work, time and contribution to the centre, we hope to continue seeing them on the rally field.

This year we are hoping to encourage more of our members to join our committee so we can all look foward to many more years of rallying with The North Lancashire Centre. The committee and myself will of course continue to welcome anyone who wishes to join us, and I look forward to working with this years committee on behalf of you all.

We continue to support our Centre Charity, High Five Lancashire for a third year. Over the past two years we have raised £1,391.00, thank you all again for your support and we hope you will continue to support this welldeserved small local charity in 2020. This year we will be holding a Chairman’s Charity Rally, where we aim to host a full range of fun games and stalls over the weekend, we hope you will join us there to support both our Centre and High Five Lancashire.

My thanks go to all the Centre’s sponsors for their continued support, without which our Rally Brochure would not be possible. My final thanks go to you the ralliers for your continued support of The North Lancashire Centre as without you there would not be a centre. We look forward to seeing you all on the rally field throughout 2020. Michael Williams Chairman
