Spares Service Suspended

Due to the latest very necessary restrictions placed on the population due to the Covid 19 virus, the club has been left with no choice other than to suspend the spares service for the time being. This is because Ray can no longer visit the spares store to fulfil orders for members , as it is not classed as a necessary journey.

Club Magazine

Following the successful publication of the March/April magazine, and its secondary distribution via email, we are continuing with creating the May/June issue, which, all being well, will be distributed once again via both means.

I’ve managed to find a better means of bulk email distribution, rather than the slightly clunky MS Outlook means currently being employed. Next time you should see an email from ‘ACCC Editor’, which offers the option of downloading the magazine. I’ll send out a covering email via the previous Outlook method beforehand, just to confirm that I’m about to make this switch.

Annual Rally 2020 – Important update

The ACCC Annual Rally on 20th/21st June in  Kent is CANCELLED.

Regretfully, taking into account the advice of the government in light of the Coronavirus crisis we had no other choice. This was not a difficult decision as the health of our members is paramount and many of the club’s membership are in the high risk group.
We intend to carry forward arrangements into 2021 but we will review this in the coming months in conjunction with Graham Potts. If you have made hotel reservations please contact the relevant hotel to cancel. Hopefully taking account of government advice there should be no problem with refunds of deposits.

Annual Rally 2020

This year’s annual rally will take place in Kent, at Mount Ephraim Gardens, nr. Faversham.

The main event is on Sunday the 21st of June, but as usual there will be trips etc. across the weekend, including a visit to the Canterbury and Whitstable railway tunnel on Friday 19th; and a road run from Judds Folly to Dover Castle on Saturday 20th.

Further details will appear in the next issue of ‘County Counsel’, together with a printed rally entry form. The rally entry form can also be downloaded here

For further details, please contact this year’s rally organiser Graham Potts the club’s used spares representative.

Renewals for 2020

Due to an oversight, membership renewal forms were inadvertently not sent with the Nov/Dec issue of ‘County Counsel’. In order to avoid additional postage costs o sending them separately, we have decided instead to send these with the Jan/Feb 2020 of the magazine.

Please note that if you do not renew following receipt of the Jan/Feb magazine, that will be the last issue you will receive – a similar reminder to this one will be included in the magazine. You can also download a renewal form via our Membership page.

Please renew as soon as possible – our loyal members are very important to us.
