I’m sure that it will come as no great surprise that the current restrictions imposed by the Government to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus mean that Broadland MGOC club meetings have been suspended until further notice. It also means, regrettably, that this year’s Heritage Run has been cancelled and the route which, due to unforeseen circumstances, had only very recently been confirmed will now be used next year.
The AGM, which was due to be held on the April club night, will now be deferred until a later date. Club membership will continue without the need to renew subs until the controls to reduce the pandemic have been lifted and club nights can return to normal.
As there will be no car runs or events to report on for several weeks, this may be the last newsletter for (hopefully) a short while. That is unless members wish to send me articles and photographs that they think others might be interested in. Please email any items to me at www.broadlandmgoc.co.uk and send items typed into the email message or as a separate Word document. Photos, at the highest resolution possible, are best sent as jpegs.
Many thanks and stay safe. Steve
Minutes of the March Club Night, Bridge Inn, Acle, – by Jill Smith
The club night predated the current restrictions imposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and many of the events David mentioned may now be rescheduled or cancelled.
A good crowd turned up for the March club night, which started off with entertainment from John and Brenda, aka High Mileage. David then presented them with a cheque for £100, which will be donated to Foxy Lodge Wildlife Rescue.
David passed on regards to everyone from Jeff Brown, who has recently had an operation on his eye.
David ran through a few events coming up throughout the year:-
28th June – Heveningham Hall Country Fair. Pre-1990 cars only.
5th July – Martham Open Gardens; Poppy Line (favourite option). The meeting point will be Cromer Road, Norwich

2nd August – Helmingham Festival of Classic and Sports Cars. Entry fee is £10 per car.
16th August – Stonham Barns. Please let Geoff Barnes know if you wish to go.
