Brockhill Park School Sandling Road, Hythe, CT21 4HL
Didn't make it to the rally? Here is a brief report on what you missed!
Hosted by George and Linda ,and ably assisted by Chris and Maria, 20 vans travelled to Hythe to enjoy a cracking weekend. The hall on Friday night was buzzing with people catching up with friends and the latest gossip. By Saturday morning the sun shone brightly and everyone was out and about walking dogs in the park and strolling around town. However, come sundown, the air became nippy and we all headed back to our vans for some warmth.
Later that evening we all headed over to the hall for some of Linda's fun and games. We had already scratched our heads trying to work out the cryptic Kent place names and now we were tested on local landmarks, famous faces, cartoon characters and 10 touchy-feely packages! And if that wasn't enough everyone was up to take part in blind "get the ball in bucket"!!
There was never a dull moment and the whole evening passed in a flash. What a great night.
Parking at this school is on hard standing with use of a school building in the evenings.
Friday Eve: Meet and greet in the Saga Building Hall. Saturday: 10.30am Coffee. 19.30am Table Quiz and more (Please bring a pen) Sunday: 11.00 Coffee and Chairman's chit chat.

The site is just a mile from the Cinque Port town of Hythe which sits near the coast and alongside the Royal Military Canal. It is also the major terminal of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which sadly is not running this weekend. Hythe is also known for being a lovely town and described as having interesting architecture, historic buildings and a fascinating variety of ‘independent’ shops, boutiques and stores, restaurants, cosy pubs, traditional tea shops, antiques and art dealers make our long main street and the lanes which lead off it a browsers' delight. Also, adjacent to the site is Brockhill Country Park which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The park sits in an area of 54-acres in a peaceful valley with a lake, stream, meadows and woodland, it is a popular place for walking, picnicing, for children to play and for observing wild life.
Hythe is a short walk of about 30 mins, albeit, some parts of the walk are hilly. There is also a bus available outside the site. Use Transportdirect.info for more information. Personally, I suggest walking down and if you don't fancy the walk back up, use a local taxi.
