New Dates for next year’s National Rally in Norfolk – Thursday 26th to Tuesday 31st AUGUST, 2021
For the rescheduled National Rally, the Team are now working on rebooking all the activities described in earlier editions of Wolseley World, or amending them if necessary to suit the new dates. Sandringham Estate will now be visited in the morning of Saturday 28th August, and are looking forward to seeing us and our cars. Progress is limited at present with venue staff still being reduced and the Covid situation ongoing, but we are determined to have a full programme of activities for the weekend of 26-31 August next year. Additional to the Annual Rally we will be holding the clubs AGM in a conference room at the Hotel on Friday 27th August at 5 pm. This is a new idea, and one which I hope means that more members can be involved in the way the club is run.
All previously booked rally entrants have been contacted by telephone or email and more than half have responded to confirm they wish to transfer their booking to 2021. It would be appreciated if those who have not done so yet could let us know of their intentions. If no longer able to attend, rally fees can be refunded but otherwise will be held over for the 2021 event.
Anyone who has not already booked accommodation, including those who have not yet applied for the rally, may wish to contact the hotel chosen as the base for the rally weekend: The Best Western Hotel, Knights Hill Hotel and Spa, South Wootton, King’s Lynn PE30 3HQ. The hotel has agreed to keep the 2020 rates for Thursday to Sunday at £78pppn for dinner, bed and breakfast or £55pppn for bed and breakfast only. Additional nights can be added at same rate subject to availability. Please book direct with the Hotel on 01553 675566, quoting Wolseley Register. Do NOT book online as this will not generate the specially negotiated room rates which include access to the hotel Spa facilities. We are still hoping to have the Friday evening dinner at a different venue (travelling by London Red Bus to Hunstanton) and on Saturday evening we will be holding the Rally Dinner in the Knights Barn at the Hotel. Knights Hill is not taking advance deposits, just names and contact details, so entrants can confirm any meal bookings nearer the time. Early booking is advised while rooms are still available. Get ‘em while there are still vacancies.
Some members may of course have other accommodation plans, or wish to join in various activities from home if they live near enough to do so. Please let the team know so we can plan around the numbers attending.
Those who are carrying their bookings forward will be contacted in due course to check their preferences for the new schedule of activities. For new applicants, a revised rally form will be issued in a future copy of Wolseley World, and online booking will also be possible through our website. The rally fee will remain at £15 per car and there will be other optional entrance fees for the various activities over the weekend.
All details and further updates will be published in Wolseley World and on the Wolseley Register website.
