First of all, I hope that everyone is well and it won’t be too long before we can all get together and become a club again.

We had some social get-togethers in the first couple of months of the year and everybody was looking forward to a busy summer attending shows with the odd weekend away planned.  In reality, we managed to squeeze a Run to Moulin in the middle of March and then we were hit with the coronavirus lockdown. All monthly meeting have had to be cancelled and all of the classic car shows that we normally attend have also been cancelled.  At the time of writing, no end is in sight for the lockdown, but hopefully once it’s lifted we can get out and about again and some Runs will be organised, even if it means that we still have to observe social distancing and have a picnic lunch.  I’d like to give some idea of events that have been planned for later in the year but without knowing what restrictions will be in place and whether there will any limits on numbers gathering, it’s difficult to say.  I’m not sure when our monthly meetings at Bo’ness will start again or even if a belated BBQ will be possible.  Let’s hope that by the end of the summer matters will be much improved.  At the March Meeting we agreed that the Xmas Dinner and Party Night would again be at the Selkirk Arms at the beginning of December and with a bit of luck that won’t be affected.

In the meantime don’t polish all the paint off your car and stay safe.
