Good morning chaps, i would be very interested in how the meet went last night in terms of the arrangements and format at the venue.
Did you all feel safe and would you be happy to do an indoor meet in October providing that the rules don't change? , your comments would be very useful in organising the next meet which,in terms of rotation would be the Queens Head on October the 9th.rob.

Hi Rob, first time for me at The Sun Inn and I enjoyed it. We had our own area and the food was good. Just paid at the bar individually for food and drinks. I felt safe, so would be happy to do another pub meet next month. Hope you make next time for more good food and company :) John

It seems that we are heading into some uncertainty regarding covid 19 and it is with regret that i suggest that the current format is postponed for a while. I personally no longer feel as confident about this as i did, having 2 teacher daughters,and 2 grandsons ,all of whom attend school,and i do not intend to endanger them any more than necessary. We could however, arrange a drive out to a place of interest,but obviously this would have to be at a weekend during daylight hours, so what do you think about that?. I shall wait for some replies before suggesting venues so as to gauge interest,rob.

I'm happy to still meet in pubs as they have all the measures in place to be safe.

A weekend drive in addition would also be good.

Hi All,

Haven't been on forum much, car has been SORN most of the year! We haven't been out and about all that often either, probably being overly careful but I'd rather err on the side of caution with the baby. So I won't be doing anything with groups for a while as things stand.

On the car front, I finally got around to fitting the aluminium door sill plates, and fixing the air solenoid CEL by replacing it, then the SSV solenoid failed so I replaced that as well, handy having small hands I can fit behind the upper intake (with a bit of wrist bruising). So car is running well anyway!

Hope you're all doing well and hopefully can meet up with everyone again at some point.

Mark

We're all good thanks Rob, whilst 2020 hasn't been the most social of years it's been great for me to spend so much time at home with my little girl rather than being in the office all the time, handy being able to work from home!

Hi All, sorry Rob, but I don't think I'll be able to make next week with Flintshire going into lockdown. Stay safe, and I'll hopefully see you all soon :thumleft: John

Thanks John, it is a bit tricky atm, and we all have our part to play. Limiting social meets is a small price to pay if it helps to keep us all safe, rob.

Hi Rob, I'm a new member & PZ owner living in Wallasey, Wirral , 51 miles from Oswestry. I was about to confirm that I would attend on the 9th but Covid lockdown of the Liverpool City region has just been announced on TV.
I would like to meet up with other members and would be happy to travel up to 70 miles to a venue in Shropshire, Cheshire or North Wales for a future social event, Covid permitting,

What would be the plan for the 9th? Or would it be best to leave it this month and look to see what another months brings. I'm not fussed either way I'm happy to meet somewhere similar to what we did previously

You have some great roads up there gents so once lockdown is history a driving day would be good. Plenty of time to plan it unfortunately!

Looking at the changes once lockdown is lifted in Wales there may be an opportunity to have a drive out legally, let's hope the new rules unlock the roads 👍😎
Should know soon.

Lets get this Wales lockdown over and see what the new limitations will be. as a monthly meet, we have five regular visitors including one from West Sussex and it would be good to welcome you both to the ranks,rob.
