I recently watched President Joe Biden pass directly over our house in Marine 1, his presidential helicopter. The Osprey escort machine was incredibly noisy. A steady stream of helicopters also passed over us all en route to Newquay airport. Hopefully now things will quieten down a bit, 6,500 police will go home and all the barriers and restrictions will be lifted. It has been interesting.
Regrettably there is a legacy starting to show itself – initially from two weeks or so back when restrictions were, partially, lifted and Cornwall was swamped with visitors. Covid is rapidly increasing and, nationally, another clampdown is being imposed. This will impact our proposed activities.
If you are booked onto an event please watch our website for information and, it is likely, you will get email communications. We are hoping that the restrictions will cause opening up to be delayed for a month to, say, 21 July. This being the case, then we are confidently trusting that the following will happen. Famous last words, eh?
On August 1 John Prewer is organising a visit to the Crich Tramway museum in Derbyshire. Again, please view the website,
www.mgb-register.org/events/crich-tramway/ for precise details including contact for John Prewer. Entries for this are mounting up.
The MGB Register Summer Picnic at Millett’s Farm, Abingdon, OX13 5HB, will be held on August 8. Astonishingly all details are… guess where!
www.mgb-register.org/events/picnic and John Watson himself is the organiser.
A real treat this year is the British Classic Car Show. This will be held Thursday 19 to Sunday August 22 at Farnborough International Expo Centre GU14 7JG. The MGB Register will have a stand at this huge event and wishes to have 10 MGBs on show each day on the stand.
In particular, this could be best supported by members who are, relatively, close to the venue. If you are interested in showing your car on the Register stand please contact John Watson, mob 07770 575236, email: firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance and sooner rather than later. All details of this event are, predictably, on the Register web page at www.mgb-register.
