12/09/2020 General Advice from classic car club sources It had been hoped by now, that it would have been possible to restart MG meets. But, the latest government advice introducing the 'rule of six' plus new regional lockdowns where deemed necessary has made any relaxation impossible. We have also been made aware that most hospitality venues are wary of hosting gatherings. So, at this time, we are advising that you attend any advertised events (which must be run by COVID secure professional events organisations) at your own risk. Certain hospitality venues, events companies and other premises have been granted certain permissions to hold organised gatherings. Those that are running events do so with significant burden of responsibility, risk assessments and COVID- safe infrastructure in place, such as track and trace, temperature testing on arrival and sanitising stations. The latest government restrictions do mean that MG meets and other events, sadly cannot resume just yet. The burden of responsibility on volunteers is too high, as is the risk to health from organising large scale events. Furthermore, the government this week advised that the penalties for hosting gatherings that break the rules are to be increased both for organisers and attendees. Whilst these are mainly aimed at protests and illegal raves, we wouldn't want any of our members falling foul of the law. In the meantime, keep in touch via Social Media, and your own local WhatsApp groups and Zoom calls. Avoid gatherings in car parks or other public spaces. Observe social distancing at all times and follow the law. Also be aware of any local lockdowns in your area. What are the rules on meeting up with people? Advice shown for England only This is guidance that applies to England only. If you live in an area where local restrictions are in place you should also consult the local restrictions guidance, for information about what you can and can’t do to manage the outbreak. It is critical that everybody observes the following key behaviours: HANDS - Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds. FACE - Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. SPACE - Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors). 1. Social distancing To reduce the risk of catching or spreading coronavirus, try to keep at least 2 metres away from people you do not live with. Social distancing is essential to stop the spread of the virus, as it is more likely to spread when people are close together. An infected person can pass on the virus even if they do not have any symptoms, through talking, breathing, coughing or sneezing. When with people you do not live with, you should also avoid: physical contact; being close and face-to-face; and shouting or singing close to them. You should also avoid crowded areas with lots of people; and touching things that other people have touched. Where you cannot stay 2 metres apart you should stay more than 1 metre apart, as well as taking extra steps to stay safe. For example: wear a face covering: on public transport and in many indoor spaces, you must wear a face covering by law, unless you are exempt move outdoors, where it is safer and there is more space if indoors, make sure rooms are well ventilated by keeping windows and doors open You do not need to socially distance from anyone in your household, meaning the people you live with. You also do not need to socially distance from someone you’re in an established relationship with, or anyone in your legally-permitted support bubble if you are in one. It may not always be possible or practicable to maintain social distancing when providing care to a young child, or person with a disability or health condition. You should still limit close contact as much as possible when providing these types of care, and take other precautions such as washing hands and opening windows for ventilation. 2. Seeing friends and family When seeing friends and family you do not live with you should: follow social distancing rules limit how many different people you see socially over a short period of time meet people outdoors where practical: meeting people outdoors is safer than meeting people indoors because fresh air provides better ventilation Limits on the number of people you can see socially are changing. From Monday 14 September, when meeting friends and family you do not live with you must not meet in a group of more than 6, indoors or outdoors. From 14 September - when the new rules apply - it will be against the law to meet people you do not live with in a group larger than 6 (unless you are meeting as a household or support bubble). The police will have the powers to enforce these legal limits, including to issue fines (fixed penalty notice) of £100, doubling for further breaches up to a maximum of £3,200. There will be exceptions where groups can be larger than 6 people, including: where everyone lives together or is in the same support bubble, or to continue existing arrangements where children do not live in the same household as both their parents for work, and voluntary or charitable services for education, training, registered childcare, or providers offering before or after-school clubs for children fulfilling legal obligations such as attending court or jury service providing emergency assistance, or providing support to a vulnerable person for you or someone else to avoid illness, injury or harm participate in children’s playgroups wedding and civil partnership ceremonies and receptions, or for other religious life-cycle ceremonies - where up to 30 people will be able to attend (updated to 15 people) funerals - where up to 30 people will be able to attend organised indoor and outdoor sports, physical activity and exercise classes (see the list of recreational team sports, outdoor sport and exercise allowed under the gyms and leisure centre guidance youth groups or activities elite sporting competition or training protests and political activities organised in compliance with COVID-19 secure guidance and subject to strict risk assessments 3. Rules in other venues and activities Venues following COVID-19 secure guidelines will be able to continue to host more people in total - such as religious services in places of worship - but no one should visit in a group of greater than 6. When you visit one of these places, such as a pub, shop, leisure venue, restaurant or place of worship you should: follow the limits on the number of other people you should meet with as a group - no more than six people unless you all live together (or are in the same support bubble) wear a face covering unless seated. avoid social interaction with anyone outside the group you are with, even if you see other people you know provide your contact details to the organiser so that you can be contacted if needed by the NHS Test and Trace programme Guidance Links England: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with- others-safely-social-distancing For NHS information visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ Please note: As volunteer organisers announce their move to postpone or cancel certain events, members should support them in that decision.
Pauline is making face coverings to raise money for Barton Camp. The current selection of masks are shown here.There is also a selection of Christmas designs. Pauline doesn’t think she’ll be buying any more Christmas fabric so will mark them appropriately if they sell out. PLUS! One design ONLY - HALLOWEEN MASKS also shown below. ALL masks are adult size. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SPECIFICALLY 'MG' MASKS THEN SCROLL DOWN! The total raised to date is a now £1500 but why stop there? Thanks to all those who have purchased masks so far. The price is £5.00 and profits are for Barton Camp. So, if you would like a face covering, please CLICK HERE TO GO TO PAULINE’S FACEBOOK PAGE where you can use Facebook Messenger to contact her. Otherwise you can email her on pauline@paulinemadethis.co.uk and she will get back to you with payment instructions etc. Normal text messaging (SMS) on a mobile is no good as Pauline can’t send pictures (MMS) if required so Facebook Messenger is best. The designs are numbered in the picture so you can let me know your preference (PLEASE include the 'X' for Christmas masks). Pauline can post to you if necessary (£2.00 postage for up to 4 face coverings) but pick-up from Claverham is preferred (chance for a run-out in the MG?) or free delivery can be arranged (Yatton, Claverham, Congresbury, Clevedon, Nailsea area). These face-coverings are double fabric layer and have 'round the ears' elastic (though you can change to long elastic to go round your head - just thread new elastic through using a safety pin). They have a pocket for an optional filter and an aluminium strip to go over the nose which is easily moulded to fit. Your mask can go in with your regular washing machine load (keep dark colours together). It will probably need ironing and steam ironing could help with sanitising it. DON’T IRON OVER THE METAL STRIP! If you'd like more info on the supported charity take a look at: https://www.bartoncamp.org for more info.
MG SPECIFIC MASKS! - £10 each An experiment is taking place with regard to producing a LIMITED EDITION range of specifically MG related masks. Not happy with first prototype so here’s the second version…………. The panels shown in the photos below are available but are strictly limited by the amount of fabric available. This being the case (and the fact that they take twice as long to make) the cost of each MG mask will be £10 - proceeds as before going to Barton Camp. APART FROM SOME SAMPLES, THESE WILL ONLY BE MADE TO ORDER So, if you would like an MG face covering, please email Pauline with your preference (SEE NUMBERED PANELS AVAILABLE BELOW) on pauline@paulinemadethis.co.uk and she will get back to you with payment instructions etc. Pauline can post to you if necessary (£2.00 postage for up to 4 face coverings) but pick-up from Claverham is preferred (chance for a run-out in the MG?) ALTERNATIVE MG SPECIFIC MASKS ARE AVAILABLE FROM: https://www.redbubble.com/i/mask/MG-cars-England-by-midcenturydave/27838650.9G0D8 OR https://shop.mgcc.co.uk/product/mgcc-bandana/
15/09/2020 - UPDATED message to all our members: As I’m sure you’re aware, the government have introduced new laws regarding gatherings, limiting them to no more than six people, indoors or out. Our MGOC Regional Secretary, Tim Hipwell, has advised that face-to-face meetings should not take place. Therefore Sunday Runs will not be possible since more than six of us can’t even meet in a car park! We did manage a meeting at the Rugby Club in September and although this venue is allowed meetings they can only have separate groups of six who are not allowed to interact. So a Club Night would not be within the law as we would, in reality, be just one large group. This could possibly expose both the Rugby Club and BAMGOC to the full force of the law - a risk which we wish to avoid at all costs! So, for the foreseeable future, Club Nights will continue to be held courtesy of Zoom. Violet and Richard’s email Newsletter will give you all the details. In the meantime I hope that you'll all stay safe. Keep driving your MGs (but only in line with government advice!) and remember “HANDS - FACE - SPACE”

15/09/2020 - UPDATED message to all our members: As I’m sure you’re aware, the government have introduced new laws regarding gatherings, limiting them to no more than six people, indoors or out. Our MGOC Regional Secretary, Tim Hipwell, has advised that face-to-face meetings should not take place. Therefore Sunday Runs will not be possible since more than six of us can’t even meet in a car park! We did manage a meeting at the Rugby Club in September and although this venue is allowed meetings they can only have separate groups of six who are not allowed to interact. So a Club Night would not be within the law as we would, in reality, be just one large group. This could possibly expose both the Rugby Club and BAMGOC to the full force of the law - a risk which we wish to avoid at all costs! So, for the foreseeable future, Club Nights will continue to be held courtesy of Zoom. Violet and Richard’s email Newsletter will give you all the details. In the meantime I hope that you'll all stay safe. Keep driving your MGs (but only in line with government advice!) and remember “HANDS - FACE - SPACE”
