:: [  CORONA  VIRUS   EPIDEMIC   IS   CANCELLING  SVVS  MEETINGS  ] ::
The Coronavirus Pandemic which is playing havoc with large parts of the world  has resulted in the mandatory closure of pubs and clubs, and any venues where meetings can take place. The Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society Committee has been monitoring the situation closely from the very beginning and had instituted a partial shutdown before any intervention by the Government. The situation however, is now entirely out of our hands and we have had no option but to halt most activities.
   ...BUT,  SOME SVVS  OLD CAR MEETINGS MAY SOON RE-COMMENCE !! 
As anticipated, Government Law restrictions tightened further and prevented us from holding all Meetings since March 2020. Vaccinations have commenced and there is talk of holding of meetings at some time mid-2021. Details of our proposed plans for restart are on the CLUB PAGE (URL in the Magazine). So until then we are filling the 'This Year's Event Page' of the SVVS Website with interesting articles before we can get back to showing rows of pristine Historic Cars and happy Members !!
