The Committee regrets to say that it has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Annual Rally. With the on-going coronavirus crisis, the safety of our members is uppermost in our minds. Also, the current restrictions on movement and social distancing are unlikely to be lifted before that date. Whether it will be possible to arrange an alternative event later in the year is difficult to say at this stage, but this is something the Committee will keep under review.
We regret to announce that the Douglas Cavalcade, planned for the 24th of May 2020, is cancelled due to the restrictions on gatherings resulting from the coronavirus outbreak.
This is one of the key events in the Club’s calendar and we look forward to holding it next year, in 2021.

For a set of factory tools in the original wooden case to have survived for almost 100 years is remarkable. For one lucky EW owner out there, this will be the ultimate ‘must have’ accessory!

The Surrey and Hampshire Section will be heading over to Fred’s Fish and Chip Bar in Littlehampton on Sunday 12th of April, for the World’s best fish and chips (according to Mr Staunton!) More details from firstname.lastname@example.org
Given the current concerns regarding coronavirus, please confirm with Roy before you set out.
In view of the coronavirus situation, the Committee has decided that this year’s AGM, scheduled for April 5th, should be cancelled. This measure has been taken reluctantly but is considered to be the safest course.
If you know of members who may not see this message and who may plan to attend the meeting, please communicate this information to them.
