You may have been told about Gobur Owners Club and we would like to invite you to join us.
Founded in May 1998, it's aim is to promote friendship and fellowship amongst the owners of these wonderful folding caravans. We are independent of the factory but receive a great deal of encouragement from Richard Moss and all his hard working team members.
We have a small committee and hold an Annual General Meeting normally in May at Fakenham Racecourse. This is very well attended and lasts for about 2 hours. In the evening, we have an informal carvery meal at the same location where we all enjoy good food whilst catching up with friends from all over the country.
Our only purpose is holding rallies, usually from March to December, across the length and breadth of the country – occasionally further afield, e.g. France, Holland and Ireland. The numbers attending the rallies varies and is usually between 10 and 25 vans. (the AGM rally being the exception to allow for as many owners as possible to attend). We use sites of a good standard, that have full facilities for both able and disabled members. We cannot guarantee the weather but we can always guarantee a very warm welcome and much laughter.
The rallies normally run from Thursdays to Tuesdays but sometimes for a week. However, you do not have to stay for the whole time. We have several members who because of work or other commitments, only come along for the weekend.
Pitch fees – payable in advance of the rallies – are usually discounted and there is a small rally fee to cover the cost of tea/coffee/biscuits etc. Our rally programme comes out in December and this gives full details and costs for the forthcoming year.
We would love you to become one of us and perhaps get even more enjoyment from your Carousel. We are a very casual group with no themes involved. You do entirely as you please. We meet up for coffee get-togethers and usually an end of rally meal at a local eatery. If you are able to, please look at our website to find out more. www.goburownersclub.org.uk.
