We would very much like you to observe and follow a few simple rules on the rally field to help us keep you safe. You are responsible for your own safety on site and all of it is based on common sense. Our objective is to ensure you remember your weekend for the right reason.
We do not dictate how and where you park your motorhome/caravan and we don’t mind you reserving a place for your friends/family (if space permits) but we would ask that you follow a few simple common sense instructions;
All motor homes/ caravans should leave a gap of a least 6 metres (20 feet) between each other. If you have an awning you should still leave a gap wide enough for a vehicle to pass through without obstruction.
If you feel that someone has parked too close to you ask them politely to move or move yourself.
A clear roadway of at least 6m wide should be maintained between rows of motor homes/caravans to enable emergency vehicles space to manoeuvre and have access to every van on site.
All vehicles should be parked so they are able to leave the rally site without obstruction preferably by driving forward.
There is no legal requirement to carry safety equipment in your ‘van but most ‘vans are sold with a fire extinguisher/blanket these days. If not, purchase one – these are available from all good camping shops and Halfords.
Don’t forget to check your safety equipment regularly.The powder in some extinguishers can settle or may need to be serviced as necessary. Even carrying a bucket and filling it with water on site can be very useful.
It is also suggested that you service your ‘van regularly to make sure that it remains safe, especially gas lines etc.
Once parked up please remember the following:
Do not play games/football around vans.
Please keep your dogs under control or on a lead if necessary. And don’t forget to pick up any accidents.
When driving across the rally field/site please keep your speed down – walking pace is fine.
Carry a torch at night. Most of our sites are in areas away from any lighting and rally fields will be very dark.
If you must use a generator please keep your usage down to a minimum (and no more than 2 hours at a time) and only use it between 9.00am and 6.00pm.
Keep your black and grey water containers away from the clean drinking tap. If there is only one water tap available (most sites only have one tap!) please use a separate container to carry water if cleaning your loo.
Finally, if you see something on site you feel is unsafe please bring it to the attention of a Committee member or, if it is safe to do so, make it safe.
All members attending our rallies must abide by the Club’s rules as detailed in the Constitution for Groups. A copy is available on the main Club website. Please note, the Club, Kent Group, its officials and members will not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to your property, including personal belongings, cash, jewellery and motor vehicles, however caused during the rally.
