Covid 19 has had a devastating effect on all aspects of daily living the world over and the car club scene did not escaped it. Many clubs closed their doors as a result of being unable to meet with their members in the ways they have become accustomed to whilst others were more innovative and thought of ways to maintain contact with their membership whilst still keeping within the rules. Exeter MG Owners Club fells within the latter.
Covid rules have now been mostly relaxed and as a result the Exeter Area MG Owners Club are back. Our social meetings are now every second Wednesday of the month 7.30pm at The Cat & Fiddle, Sidmouth Road, Clyst St Mary, Exeter, EX5 1DP. The rules regarding the need for a Lateral Flow Test when entering high risk events and venues changed on the 27th January 2022. The Government says that the need for testing is still necessary for people visiting “high risk” areas such as hospitals and care homes. They also are saying that if individuals show symptoms of Covid 19 they should test and if a positive result is obtained adults should self isolate for five days and then have two negative tests on seperate days before returning to normal activities. As a club we would support these rules but can no longer ask you to obtain a negative LFT before coming to the social meetings but leave you to make your own decision on this matter.
As things change we will update this website with our latest arrangements which will meet with whatever the “current government rules” are at the time. It is always our intension to both follow the rules and keep our members safe.
