Newnes Touring Park
Twenty Vans were booked for the above rally for a week of entertainment and fun the highlight being the narrow-boat journey along the Llangollen Canal across the famous Pontcysylitte Aqueduct, the Chirk Aqueduct and through the 460yd Chirk Tunnel. Unfortunately after weeks of dry sunny weather it was not kind to us and for most of the days it was wet and windy. However this did not dampen our spirits as we enjoyed Pat and Harolds Golden Wedding Celebrations, musical entertainment by Ifor on his keyboards, a boules competition, a walk along the towpath into Ellesmere and a splendid group lunch. Arthur and I ventured out on our electric bikes and got as far as Foxton Locks and interesting flight of narrow locks very busy with queuing narrow boats. Huge thanks to Colin and Lucie for organising an excellent Rally.
