Hi All/ Croeso
We’ve been members for 8 years so we think it’s time we organised & held a rally in Aberystwyth. We’ve found a venue at our local rugby club, arrive on Thursday 9th August 2018 & depart Thursday 16th so 7 nights, but you can come for as long as you want. The cost will be £10 per night, we’ve negotiated for a meeting/social room for free to use as often as we like. We’ve got loads of places for you to visit, so come & explore with us.
Facilities: Use of shower & toilet, fresh water & Elsan point, (similar to Ambleside) LPG & Calor Gas near by too.
The Rugby club is a short stroll into the town, supermarkets, swimming pool, railway station, promenade & most importantly a pub!!!(Marstons)
Be lovely to get your feedback & provisional attendees.
For those of us who are going onto to the Malvern Show/Rally it is only 2.5 hours away (98 miles).
The clincher might be Welsh afternoon tea on Thursday 9th at 4pm.
