Club Update 2
Due to additional restrictions in our location, any thoughts on trying to re-instate club meetings, runs to dining experiences and any other visitor attractions have been curtailed for the foreseeable future.
However, a small group of not more than six people have been able to meet outside and have given the old faithful MG a run out in the Lancashire/North Yorkshire countryside, followed by a picnic lunch & complying with social distancing but close enough for a good natter without shouting, face coverings at the ready.
One recent trip out to take advantage of the good weather by Neil & Janet was a drive through the Trough of Bowland and a second shake down run for the MG after is replacement clutch. I can report that all is well no adverse effects whatsoever.
It is pleasing to note that most people in the club are safe and well, except for one, our Gail, who had a fall that resulted in a broken leg and torn ligaments (ouch!). Healing has progressed over the past weeks, the plaster cast has been removed and recovery is well underway.
Keeping in touch during this period of restrictions is not easy and is done mainly by phone, or Facebook, which can be a wonderful source of information if used responsibly. Another source of information is the club website where articles under ‘Latest News’ keep members up to date.
Mick and Barbara took the opportunity to travel to the Trout in Cockermouth, a club favourite which, unlike some of the Lake District, was surprisingly dry. They also sent us a photo of B&P MGOC secretary Geof and Mike – a Rover fan – on the Jacobite steam train to remind us of happier days with an MG.
