Instructions for Members - From BLCCA Meetings

Clubs were reminded that under BLCCC rules the flying of Drones or Kites near caravans is strictly forbidden.

The consensus from clubs was that a Non Unit Owning Member (NUOM), had to be over 18 years of age and want to attend a rally in a members unit. Then these individuals must be a club NUOM member. Each club is to decide if a NUOM member had a vote at club meetings.


The BL Association Committee have undertaken a review of the practice of using gas cylinders outside of units and the conclusion was that tall large external gas cylinders present an unacceptable hazard.

It was agreed that the Association would encourage the use of touring caravans and motorhomes in accordance with the recommendations of manufacturers, whereby gas cylinders are located in dedicated internal storage lockers.

Where is it necessary to keep gas cylinders outside of a unit’s locker, for example where an old caravan does not have a purpose built locker, the permitted maximum size is now limited to 15kg. The cylinder must be strapped securely to the unit and connected with a short proprietary hose in good condition and not be under any strain or vulnerable to strain.

The practice of using an external cylinder to feed into the caravan system via a barbeque outlet is not permitted irrespective of size of cylinder.



The subject of E cigarettes and vaporizers was raised and after it had been reported that a few individuals have been smoking them at social evenings it was agreed that the No Smoking ban remains and both E cigarette and Vaporizer smokers should go outside with normal smokers.



This subject was discussed and agreed that any illegal drugs taken on rallies are banned by all clubs, anybody found to be using illegal drugs will be asked to leave the rally field and the police will be notified.


Other BLCCA Information

*  Rally Slips must not be accepted before 15th January.

*  On rallies where BLCCC Exemption Certificate is to be used; the 20ft Foot separation rule must be strictly adhered to. (please refer to the rally book for details of the rules).

*  School Sites – when rallying on school sites, the caravans must not connect to the school electrics.




The Rally Officer is actively pursuing a number of opportunities for rallies in 2020 but would be happy to follow up any suggestions from club members for new sites.  Please contact Nigel or Tony direct or email the club, SwindonCaravanandcampingclub@Hotmail.co.uk.


The rallies for 2019 have been announced.  See here.


Every rally relies on Club Marshals to make it run smoothly.  The task is not onerous and is very rewarding.  

Why not volunteer next season?  It is a rewarding and enjoyable experience.




Your Committee keep the website refreshed and up to date to ensure it provides you with all the information you need.

They hope you enjoy using it and are happy to hear your views on the appearance and any improvements you’d like to see.
