A message to all our members Having taken advice regarding the current coronavirus situation we feel it is only prudent to cancel our Club Nights, Lunch Meetings and Sunday Runs until further notice. We hope to resume our normal activities in September pending further advice and updates. In the meantime we hope that you'll all stay safe. Keep driving your MGs (but only in line with government advice!) kind regards Chairman and all members of your committee

17/07/2020 General advice from MGOC HQ Outdoor gatherings of up to 30 people are permissible within the law but the understanding is that they should only be interacting with a maximum of six people within that number so total group interaction seems to be not allowed. It is really a question of keeping strictly within the law, behaving responsibly from the hygiene and social distancing point of view and avoiding any opportunities for others to criticise the MGOC for “bending the rules”. Advice would also be not to organise any convoy type runs as technically you could have 15 cars with two occupants on a convoy run to meet at the seaside for example and then all park together whilst observing the distancing rules on arrival. This might give the wrong impression to any “busybody” observers, but it is all down to how different people interpret the rules!” General Advice from other classic car club sources Many local group organisers will know that recently, key changes to Government guidance were implemented to enable sections of the hospitality industry to re-open. So, what does the easing of restrictions mean for events, shows and meet ups and what are the rules that apply to car clubs? The Government advice pertinent to us is shown below. However, as regional outbreaks occur, (such as seen this Summer in Leicester, England) local guidance may also change on a regional basis, so clubs should probably also check with their local authorities for advice specific to their area of the country. Some venues have been running or advertising certain small scale events. If people attend such gatherings, they do so at their own risk and should satisfy themselves that the business, venue or organiser has put in the necessary infrastructure, social distancing, track and trace and hygiene measures to comply with the regulations for hospitality venues. Cafés, restaurants and pubs that are able to re-open, have been placed under heavy restrictions to enforce hygiene and social distancing. Many venues are operating a pre-book only policy and all venues are required to record the personal details of anyone entering their premises. Venue owners are being asked to act responsibly and control over-crowding at their establishments. From mid- July, outdoor theatres, cinemas and political bodies were also added to the list of exemptions from the rules on public gatherings. The latest advice, which applied from 4th July 2020, urges us to ‘Remain Alert and Safe.’ It’s therefore vitally important that people act responsibly and follow government guidance for their area, as tighter lockdown measures could very quickly return following a second spike if guidelines are not followed. What are the rules on meeting up with people? Advice shown for England only *It is currently against the law for gatherings of more than 30 people to take place except where specified in the Regulations, this includes private homes and outdoor spaces. From 25th July: Venues following COVID-19 Secure guidelines may be able to host larger groups. This is provided they take reasonable steps to mitigate the risk of transmission, in line with COVID-19 Secure guidance and including completion of a risk assessment. Any other gathering in an outdoor space must not be any larger than 30 people except where specified in the Regulations. *Those operating venues or running events following COVID-19 Secure guidelines should take additional steps to ensure the safety of the public and prevent mass gatherings or large events from taking place. *If attending a venue that is following COVID-19 Secure guidelines, you should take care to limit your interactions with anyone outside of your group and you should continue to maintain social distancing from those that you do not live with. It is critical that you follow these guidelines to keep both yourself and others safe. *Two households are now able to meet indoors and people from those two households are allowed to stay the night. Those two households have to maintain social distancing throughout, unless they are in a support bubble with each other. *Meetings indoors of more than two households are not recommended, because of the higher risk of infection that meeting indoors poses. Households can meet with multiple numbers of other households, as long as each is a separate meeting. *Outdoors, people from multiple households can meet in groups of up to six. What about clinically vulnerable individuals? Those who have been unidentified as at “high-risk” of contracting COVID-19 are now able to gather in groups of up to six people outdoors. This number includes individuals outside of the household. Those shielding can also form a “support bubble” with one other household. When will the rules change? The rules can be relaxed or made tougher at any time. However, the Government must review again before 31st July 2020. Guidance Links England: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing- after-4-july For NHS information visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ Key points : *The pandemic is NOT over – the lives of our families and friends are still at risk. *Check your car over carefully if it’s not been used for a while, paying particular attention to tyres and brakes. *Maintain social distancing of 2 metres where possible (1 metre in certain circumstances – refer to Government guidelines). *If you previously declared your MG as being on SORN to the DVLA , be sure to update it before taking to the road. *If you didn’t renew your insurance policy during lockdown, do it right away. To help with this, check out the contacts for our panel of insurers in Safety Fast Magazine. *If your vehicle needs one, do you have an MOT? The six month extension only applies to cars that were due an MOT after 30th March 2020 and before 1st August. Extensions are granted in the seven days before the expiry date. After August 1st, you will be required to renew your MOT upon it’s expiry as normal. *For more information on COVID-19 visit www.who.int *To view UK Government advice visit: www.gov.uk *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. Shown here is a pic of the latest in face mask fashion available. Large choice of fabrics. The total raised to date is a now around £900 and she’s aiming to break the magic £1000. The masks are all adult size. 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. Choice is fairly random but state whether pretty or plain(ish) (ie female or male) and maybe colour preference. 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.
