Chairman’s New Years Update
Happy New Year
I trust you all had a safe and good Christmas or at least as well as it could be, under the current circumstances.
Well it’s arrived 2021, thank god we have seen the last of 2020. Or have we? I am not too sure that the start of 2021 will be any better than the majority of 2020. We will have to make the most of the start of the year.
Tier 4 has been applied to many areas in the UK and most of us are now in tier 4, this will have an impact on what we can do going forward for the immediate future
We have cancelled all club events for January and February, we will continue to monitor each month and keep you all up dated with any club activities.
Let us keep our fingers crossed that the “R” rate will come down and we can get back to some normality. There is another vaccine been approved now and hopefully this will have an impact on the Covid 19 virus. I am aware that not everyone will be having the vaccine, but that is a personal choice and it is left to each individual.
We are still planning events for this year and preparations are underway for the GVEC Manor Park Show. Hopefully we will be able to attend plenty of the events that we are currently planning with other car clubs. If restrictions are still in place and we are unable to attend shows, we will of course, as we did last year, arrange some car drives, so that we can at least get our pride and joys out on the open road. (This will of course be subject to what restrictions will be in place)
March will now be our Spring Drive on the 21st (subject to no restrictions) and we will be sending out details as soon as we are able to confirm the event / drive. Our annual GVEC anniversary dinner planned for the 13th March is still on hold. Once we have conformation that it can go ahead we will let you know.
Easter Sunday April 4th we don’t normally have a planned event for this day. The club planned a drive last year and we had a great take up for this, so we are happy to plan one for this year if the members would like one just let us know.
We are not yet sure if we will be able to hold a get together for the AGM and it will depend on restrictions if we are able to hold one where we can all get together. We will keep you up to date via e-mail and all our media pages and our web site.
The Ireland trip in June is hopefully still going ahead. I have reserved rooms at a hotel and I am in constant touch with them. They will let me know when they will require a deposit to secure the rooms. For those of you who would like to join us on the Ireland trip you may need your passport so make sure it is in date. We still have availability on this event.
