Mr Sean Cundell
Windy Ridge, Garden Lane
Wisbech St Mary
I would like to start by saying, thank you to Richard Laborne and his committee for all of their hard work over the past two years, which has been a very trying time for them and for us all.
Hopefully now we have started to come out of the other side of the pandemic, but of course we all still need to be careful and stay safe, as Covid will not go away.
I would like you to all know how honoured I am to become your Chairman of the Mid Anglia Centre for the next three years.
I would also like to say a massive thank you to my committee for their support and great work they all do behind the scenes to allow us all to go rallying. That said, I also would like to thank each and every rally marshal for their hard work in creating the rallies for us all to enjoy!
It also goes without saying a massive thank you to my wife Julia for her continued support and help in everything I do.
It is my goal to keep moving this great centre forward. It would be lovely to see more new rally marshals running rallies, so any new marshals that fancy running a rally please don’t be afraid to do it. You can speak to myself or any member of the Committee for help and advice, and of course any other rally marshals, we are all here to help each other, that’s what caravanning and rallying is all about.
During my term as your Chairman, the Committee and myself have the Mid Anglia Centre’s 50th anniversary rally next July 13th-17th 2022. The venue is now booked, and we are all busy behind the scenes preparing what we hope to be a very memorable rally for all of our members to enjoy, don’t miss it. It will be great.
Now for the bit about me I suppose, for those of you that don’t know me. I started caravanning with my parents Stuart & Diane Cundell back in the late seventies, early eighties, in their Sprite with foot operated water pump on the floor. We didn’t rally during those times, just had some great weekends away making great family memories.
After leaving the Manor School in Cambridge in 1986, I became an apprentice motor mechanic at the age of sixteen, serving many years on the spanners and became an MOT tester. I worked my way up the ladder becoming a service Manager at Marshall Motor Group in Cambridge.
Although I still work within the motor trade, I’m now an auditor working for a company called The MOT Club. Within this role I travel up and down the country auditing MOT testing stations, where I turn up unannounced to check out their MOT testing facility and also carry out checks on the MOT testers themselves. I am also still an active MOT tester myself.
Julia and I married in August 2000 and we have two wonderful children, Liam & Sian.
We brought our first caravan back in 2007 joining Mid Anglia Centre that same year. We enjoyed attending rallies when our children were young and growing up. We attended rallies like Halloween, Bonfire & Christmas to name but a few.
Although the children have grown up Sian will still come out on the occasional rally, but Liam is always out with his mates, or driving around in his car, as he has just recently pass his driving test.
I am looking forward to seeing you all out enjoying yourselves on the rally field soon, attending as many rallies as possible, and let’s keep our fingers crossed for a glorious summer.
Hope to see you all soon & happy rallying, stay safe!
Mid Anglia Chairman.
