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.
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.
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.
The 1953 A40 Somerset Coupé, belonging to member Ken McGuire is up for sale at a forthcoming Sothebys auction to be held in Elkhart, Indiana. This really is an outstanding example of this rare car.
