Canvey Rally: A Look Back   February 23rd, 2010

On Sunday 7th February the South Essex ARS held their annual rally at the Paddocks Community Centre on Canvey Island. Mark Francis & Rob Snitch manned the Waters & Stanton stand and reported that the attendance was well up on last year and the day a great success.

But don’t just take their word for it, Mike “Zipy” Wheaton, G4ZPE,¬†from the Essex Repeater Group was also there:

“I thought you would like to see how this amateur radio operator supports Waters & Stanton on the day at Canvey Rally this year. The support was first class from the punters, the car park was full and they had to park in the road, it was the best show I have seen for Canvey. So thank you Waters¬†& Stanton for the support from the Essex Repeater group. From an Old Codger De Zipy.”
