Benefits of Membership
Our weekend rallies take place all year long and are a key reason for joining the Club, especially as they represent a really affordable way to have a mini-holiday every month across the UK, and abroad, with friendly help, local knowledge and plenty of fun for all age groups always available if you want it.
The rally programme page has brief details of this year’s dates and locations. These are friendly occasions, and new members are always made especially welcome.
The Club quarterly newsletter includes updates from previous rallies and details of any new events. It also includes any relevant reports from the club’s committee members, plus any for sale/wanted adverts.
There is also the Little Bees newsletter for children, with competitions, plus lots more..!
The Club has a junior section known as the ‘Little Bees’. There are often special rally competitions for children with prizes awarded by age group. A junior member is elected to edit the Little Bees newsletter and take on the role of ‘Junior representative’ to be the voice of the children on the Club committee.
Visit to the Bailey Factory in Bristol
Every two years we are invited to an exclusive visit to the Bailey factory in Bristol, something which is not normally available to the public, so is always one of our most popular events. The tour of the production facility allows you to gain an insight into how your caravan or motorhome is constructed, with the opportunity to meet various members of the production and management teams to answer any questions. There is also usually an opportunity to purchase surplus components while enjoying refreshments provided after the tour.
