2021 Message from your Chaiman Roger Re camping

Posted by Webmaster on May 25, 2020 at 8:30 AM

Good Afternoon all fellow campers and D.A collegues, please find below notification as received from Club HQ. Fingers crossed for Laughing Fish Stay safe and well.

Dear Secretary

We are writing with more positive news! Further to the Road Map that the PM shared with us on Monday, there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel! What we know now: 12 April – This will be our earliest opening date for sites in England. It is likely that we will not be able to open facility blocks, so we will only be able to welcome self-sufficient campers.

17 May – This is likely to be our earliest opportunity to open facility blocks. 21 June – We have this tantalising date. If all goes to plan, it’s when we just might be able to get back to some form of normality. Scotland is a little behind England with 26 April being the earliest likely opening date for campsites. This will be with restrictions which are yet to be published. It is likely Scotland will continue to operate a Tier structure. The Welsh government has indicated

1 April  as the earliest opening date for self-contained accommodation, while the Northern Ireland government hasn’t indicated a re-opening date for tourism. In terms of Meets and THSs, the Executive Committee are happy for you to operate these in line with the opening of Club Sites. However, please continue to operate Meets and THSs as campsites, not as social gatherings with activities. When at a Meet or THS we ask that you familiarise yourself with, and follow the latest government guidance on social distancing, numbers allowed to meet and bubbles. As you will be aware, these dates are subject to change, and we ask you to keep an eye on the Club’s website, which we will keep updated, as and when any one of the governments announce changes. https://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/helpandadvice/travelplanning/coronavirus/ Turning to a couple of administrative matters, the Executive Committee require all Region & National Section AGMs to be held virtually – in line with their previous instruction to District Associations and Section Areas. The AGMs should be held on the same date and at the same time already published.

We appreciate that notices of your AGMs have been included in the Club magazine, stating a date, time and venue. You will need to communicate this change out to your members via your usual channels, and we will include a piece in the April and May magazine to highlight that all AGMs will be held virtually, and not at the venue listed, but on the same date and at the same time. We have received a number of questions relating to the signing of Minutes and Bank Statements, when they are being approved at virtual meetings. Both the Minutes and the Bank Statements should be approved by those present at the virtual meeting. It should then be minuted that the Chairman confirms that the Secretary will sign the documents on his/her behalf. Like all of you no doubt, we can’t wait to get back to doing what we enjoy, without any restrictions. However, please do remain cautious and sensible when you are able to run Meets and THSs – as campsites - as you were through 2020.
