New Card Reader

We will no longer be accepting a BACS payment as this requires a lot of administration for the Treasurer. The system that will be used is called SumUp. The device to be used is the SumUp 3G Card Reader. Details of this, and other, devices available can be viewed via the following link https://www.sumup.co.uk At present the following rallies will be accepting card payment: May Day at Stratford Free & Easy in St. Ives Bluntisham Beer Walk Fishing at Little Walden Full English with the Chairman Mini Olympics Summer Fun Ferry Meadows.

CAMC Covid-19 - 10 April 2021 - REMINDER

Dear all Members should be mindful, at all times, of the restrictions currently in place and not be too eager to waver. Caution needs to be taken at all times. For latest CAMC guidance, visit the CAMC website. I know how excited you must be to be able to resume rallies after the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 22 February, and the devolved nations’ roadmaps out of lockdown. As you are probably aware the Club is anticipating being able to reopen Club sites in England on 12 April 2021, although we are still awaiting confirmation regarding certain aspects relating to shared facilities. In addition travel between countries (ie between England, Wales, Scotland and NI remains restricted, and guidance has not been provided yet in Scotland, Wales or NI). For example the guidance in England is that domestic travel after 8 March is permitted but should be minimised (eg. stay local). In brief, and please note that these dates and details are obviously subject to change as per the announcements from the respective Governments. Please make an informed decision before deciding when to commence rallying, mindful that the dates could change. Step 2 (no earlier than 12 April 2021) England Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it, and all members must comply with the Government’s guidance regarding social contact, and group size outdoors. The Rule of Six applies and affects gazebos and awnings. Secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally. Further guidance will be published prior to Step 3 coming into effect. Step 3 (no earlier than 17 May 2021) England There can now be a maximum of 30 people outdoors. This means social activities on a rally can resume but for only a maximum of 30 people. A Covid Risk Assessment is still required to be submitted to governance seven days before the start of the rally. The Rule of Six applies to indoor meetings and two households (a van represents one household) are permitted to meet. Step 4 (no earlier than 21 June 2021) England There are no longer any restrictions on social gatherings at rallies. It is likely that there will still be a requirement to have Covid Risk Protocols in place on rallies and more details of this will be advised at a later date. All Centre rallies and events must continue to have a Risk Assessment undertaken, per Centre Guidance, and this is to be held on record with the Centre Committee per the GDPR data retention plan. This is good practice to ensure safety on a rally and will be a good reference should anything go wrong. Reminders to ralliers about handwashing and compliance with any Government regulations are to be followed. No earlier than 1 April 2021 (Easter Weekend) Wales Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it. Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally. Date TBC Northern Ireland Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it. Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally. No earlier than 26 April 2021 Scotland Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities. Scotland will remain in level 3. Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally. NB. We are aware that the Centres in Scotland have decided to cancel all rallies until the end of May 2021.

Important Message from the Chairman

Easter Address. We are disappointed Easter can’t go ahead this year, but we are now looking forward to 12th April when caravanning can commence again. Mid – Anglia’s first rally back will be Stratford May Day rally. Our Bake-off rally at St. Ives has been scaled back to a free and easy rally. Being your Chairman through this Covid 19 pandemic hasn’t been easy in any way. It’s hard cancelling rallies as we know only too well what efforts have gone into organising them. Unfortunately, after deep consideration, due to work and family commitments both Helena and I will be stepping down as Chairman and Rally Secretary respectively as at October’s AGM. It’s not a decision we’ve taken lightly. My boys are progressing in their football training academies and their local football teams. We are finding it hard ferrying them all over the county. This year’s season nearly rolls into the next season due to missed games. So therefore, I don’t feel I can commit to being your Chairman as I feel I should be. My family must come first. As for now have a great Easter, keep safe and we look forward to seeing you on a rally field soon. Richard Laborne Chairman, Mid Anglia Centre
