WIMA National Rally

Disserth, Wales 10th – 12th June 2016

This year’s National is at Disserth Caravan and Camping Park, Howey, Llandrindod Wells, Powys LD1 6NL. Arrival is from noon on Friday 10 June, where you will be welcomed by Rally Officer Ann Weir, and collect your name badge and goody bag.

Tucked away under the watchful eye of St Cewydd’s on the one side and bordered by the babbling river Ithon, lies Disserth Caravan and Camping Park. Set amidst natural tranquillity, this compact sheltered level park has been accommodating travellers for centuries. Once it was an overnight stop for drovers heading for the Midlands and today it is an idyllic location for your caravan, motorhome or tent for a relaxing rest from the hustle and bustle of modern living or a base from which to explore the natural beauty of the Heart of Wales.

Friday evening: in the bar, meeting new and old friends and generally catching up.

Saturday: a Treasure Hunt around the local area, with a lunch stop planned, or of course, you can “do your own thing”. Evening will be back in the bar, with a quiz to kick the evening off.

Sunday: AGM in the meeting area, promptly at 10 am, followed by our usual raffle. Please bring a prize – NB small enough to be carried on a bike!

The Boardroom Bar is available from 11am to 11pm daily when the touring park is open and other customers are present. The bar is situated on the ground floor of the stone barn attached to the house. Access is through the conservatory and reception area. On offer is a  wide range of drinks from Welsh beers, lager and cider through to a wide range of spirits, including a collection of over seventy malt whiskies from around the world, to soft drinks and tea and coffee. You are welcome to just come and sit and read a book in comfort or enjoy a chat and a drink or plan your next adventure in the Heart of Wales.
