CHAIRMAN’S CHAT Well I have used the MG to do essential shopping a couple of times but that's it. So Lady B is siting quietly in the garage waiting to be released, like the rest of us. We are now allowed to travel a little further to exercise but not to meet people so it's not possible to reschedule any club nights at this time. However for a club supporting older cars we achieved a first this month (May) by holding an interactive on line "zoom" club night. This is an entirely new experience for old timers like me but much to my surprise it worked amazingly well. I think we had 16 people log in to the session, some with partners, and Charlie from Canada where it was nice to put a face to the name. Thanks to all who took part. Following the success of the experiment we will use this medium for our next club nights until we are able to get back together properly. Stay safe everyone and look forward to seeing you for "real" soon. Garry
SECRETARY’S SLOT Hi All This magazine, almost of necessity, has a lot of content relevant to the current Coronavirus lockdown and other restrictions. Let’s hope that by the time of the next magazine we have more positive news to report. However, our members are ever resourceful and have been keeping busy. Not least in sending in items for the magazine. I had thought it would be very slim pickings but have had a job and a half fitting everything in. So thank you to those who took the time to contribute - it’s much appreciated. I have also received an email from Charlie Taylor (our Canadian member) with power window installation tips. I didn’t have room to reproduce it in this issue of Fast Forward but if anyone would like a copy then contact me and I will email it to you. Your committee have been keeping in touch and is reluctantly announcing that, having taken advice regarding the current situation, we feel it is only prudent to cancel our Club Nights, Lunch Meetings and Sunday Runs until further notice. This unfortunately includes the Autumn Run which has been postponed until 2021. We had a successful Club Night in May using Zoom on our computers and tablets - great fun! We are planning a repeat for June Club Night so look out for Violet and Richard’s Newsletter which will have details of how to join in. We hope to resume our normal activities in September pending further advice and updates. Everything is in a state of flux so keep an eye on the Events Page on our website for any changes. You never know - maybe injections of disinfectant might help - oh, haven’t I heard that somewhere before??? In the meantime we hope that you'll all stay safe. Keep driving your MGs (but only in line with government advice!) Pauline

Moss Bristol 14 Avonside Industrial Park, Avonside Road, Bristol BS2 0UQ Tel: 0117 923 2523 Fax: 0117 942 8236 Email: bristol@moss-europe.co.uk Web: www.moss-europe.co.uk Our thanks go to Moss Bristol for advertising in our magazine and to Owen, Jim, Tony, George, Steve and Martin at Moss Bristol for all their help and support to our members.

Our thanks go to the following magazine sponsors:

Chris Leverett Classics (near Backwell) Tel: 07710 796841 Web: www.mgrepairs.co.uk Our thanks go to Chris Leverett Classics for advertising in our magazine and for advising members for many years.
The magazine is financed by both your membership fees and our advertisers. If you, or anyone you know, wishes to advertise in Fast Forward then here are the rates - full page £15, half page £10, quarter page £5. There are 6 issues a year so the maximum cost is £90. Copies go to all members plus copies are handed out at Moss, Chris Leverett Classics and at any shows we attend.
A plea for the magazine: It takes all of two minutes to stop and take a picture; how many of you now own a digital camera? How many of you own a computer? It would be lovely to feature some members cars being used as they should each month. It is so simple to email them, just say who its from and where it was taken, if you wish to write more we will be more than pleased. Email to MAGAZINE PHOTOS - thankyou.
