On Saturday 3rd September 2016 a reasonable turnout attended the Centre Agm held within the Iona Hotel Strathclyde
Park, Motherwell when a committee of eight were elected.
The chairman Morris Whitehead on his election pointed out that there appeared to be a lack of concern from the members regarding attendance at rallies, and a poor show of volunteers from members to consider putting there names forward to be elected onto committee.
He also pointed out that without volunteers to join the committee there is the future possibility that the centre may not be able to sustain itself and may have to close which I am sure that you the members do not want to see happen.
As you, the members of The West Centre may not be aware it was our A.G.M. on Saturday 3rd September2016.
We have only a small Committee of 8 at this time.
If there is anyone who would like to give something back to the Centre, or perhaps find out more information, then
please contact any one of the Committee.
At this point, I need to let you, the members know the facts.
We have as I said, a Committee for this year, but unless we can get someone to come forward or show an interest for the Secretary & Treasurers posts, we as a Centre, will no longer exist.
Our Secretary has made it very clear that this will be her last year. Also our Treasurer is only in the post for 1 year.
I must therefore ask you, the West of Scotland Members where does the Centre go from here, as I personally, do not want the Centre to go into Hibernation.
Our Annual Dinner Dance will be held on Saturday 12th November 2016, at The New Lanark Mill Hotel, New Lanark. Hotel Rooms are available along with provision for Caravans at Overton Farm. Entertainment will be provided by Squeeze & Tease. For further information please contact our Social Secretary.

West Centre Chairman
What can we offer you?
The West Centre would be delighted to welcome you, and your family to any of our rallies listed in our 2016 programme of events. We organise some long weekends and Holiday Rallies to coincide with local school and area breaks. Our aim is to promote a relaxing break with like-minded people who share a love of caravanning and socialising.
What is a rally?
Centre Rallies are organised events, where Caravan Club members meet for weekends or holidays, to pursue their various interests, and have some fun along the way. The chief rally officer is the person, along with his/her team, responsible for organising and running the rally; this includes arranging the site and services, putting up the Centre's direction signs to the venue, and all the social events. Most of our Centre rallies have a social evening, which may include dancing, quizzes, games, bingo, and even barbeques in the warmer evenings. You are free to join in any of the activities or simply relax and do your own thing. Being a member of "The Caravan Club", means that you would be able to join a rally being run by any Centre, which can be very useful when going to, or returning home from your holidays, or you may just wish to visit other Centre areas. Details of all rallies are listed in the Club Magazine and copies of most Centre Handbooks are held by our Centre's Rally Secretary.
