HCI Rally to Market Bosworth

27th May 2021 to 1st June 2021 (5 nights)

At Market Bosworth Rugby Club. Peter Milne, Margaret Foreman, Dave & Caroline Hanson, invite you to join them in rural Leicestershire, for the late May Bank Holiday weekend, 2021, for a relaxed and informal rally. The ancient town of Market Bosworth, dates back to the bronze age, received its royal charter from Edward 1, has a 14th century church and pub. Close by lies the site of the Battle of Bosworth Field of 1485, where Richard 111 became the last English King to be killed in battle on home soil. A mile to the west lies the Ashby canal and the preserved ‘Battlefield’ steam railway.

The rally site is all hardstanding and we have the use of the rugby clubhouse in the evening. Own sanitation is essential although the clubhouse toilets will be available in the evenings. The site lies approximately half a mile from the town with access through the adjacent country park. There are easy walks from the site and a bus stop 300yds from the site entrance. Mkt Bosworth has a small supermarket, pubs, cafes and other retailers. We are planning Afternoon Tea, games in the evenings and other things we can think up! The days will be for your own pleasure, but no doubt there will be an organised walk and/or Bike ride.

Attractions in the vicinity are the National Memorial Arboretum, Calke Abbey, Twycross Zoo and Drayton Manor theme park. Derby and Burton upon Trent lie to the north and Leicester to the east. All this will cost you the ‘Princely’ (geddit?) sum of £75 per unit.

Please send your completed HCI Rally application form and cheque to : Mr Peter Milne, 17 Linnet Crescent, Brandon, Suffolk IP27 0YL

Please mark your cheque and envelope ‘Mkt Bosworth’

Also nearby is the Canal River Trust Museum and a coffee shop.

The site itself does not have EHU but there is plenty of fresh water, plus grey and black waste disposal points. Rubbish will be your own responsibility as we have to leave the site clean.

At this point we are planning the following agenda……

  • A group meal on Saturday night – a roast plus pudding, tea or coffee at £20 per head. (can you let us knows numbers).

For those who are not petrol heads, a bus trip to Milton Keynes shopping centre (www.centremk.com) Again numbers are required for the separate trips. The cost of these trips will be determined by how many people are going.
  • If there is enough interest, a canal barge trip can be arranged through the 2.8 km long Blisworth Tunnel, a trip of approximately of one and a half hours to the village and return.
  • Cycle rides and walks to explore the local area and possible pub stops!!

The cost of the rally is £84 per unit and will be on a first come basis, however it is large site.

HCI Rally - ‘ON SHANKS’ PONY’ Odstone, Leicestershire

16th to 21st June 2021 (5nts)

Roger & Sue Bishop and Ann & Paul Clarke invite you to join them for a relaxing sojourn in some lovely countryside. As suggested by the name, this rally is primarily designed for those who enjoy walking in a quiet rural location and will be limited to 15 units. The hamlet of Odstone stands on high ground between two river valleys some 3.5 miles from Shackerstone and, with many signed footpaths, is ideal countryside for walking.

The site, Brook Cottage, is a well tended dog friendly C&CC CS on the edge of the hamlet 2.5 miles from Shackerstone the home of the Battlefield Heritage Railway. There are many well signed footpaths close to the site including Ivanhoe Way and the Leicester Round and part of the National Cycle Routes system passes the site. In addition to the normal basic facilities there is a toilet and washing facilities. EHU is available if required for an additional charge. However, if you wish to travel further afield own transport is required as there is no local bus service and the nearest shops are at Ibstock (2 miles).

This will be a ‘free and easy’ rally with the opportunity to join us on daily walks of between 4 and 6 miles. All walks are graded ‘Leisurely’ by the Ramblers Association so pitons, crampons, emergency rations etc can be safely left at home and – for those of you who have experienced rallies with us before – I promise there are NO steps or steep climbs this time.

This rally is limited to 15 units and applications will be drawn from a hat on Monday 14th December 2020. At least two places will be reserved for first time ralliers. If you are a new member and it is your first rally please write FTR on the back of your envelope.

The price of the rally is £55 without EHU or £75 with hook-up.

Please send a cheque post-dated for 7 January 2021 and made out to:- R Bishop, 6 Lincoln Road, Eagle, Lincoln, LN6 9DL and enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope or e-mail address for booking confirmation. (An e-mail address would be preferred where possible).
