For all future editions of NECPWA News, the editor would welcome any article, letter or item relevant to our general purpose - the promotion of classic car ownership . This can still include For Sale/Wanted advertisements, for example, when buyers and sellers would have to organise themselves in light of the current situation.

1st May 2020

An update from the Club Chairman: In this strange world we seem to be living in at the moment, one of Helen’s friends called it like living through a Science-fiction movie. No one seems to know when we will get back to normal. At the moment, we at the Tyneside Branch are cancelling events at the latest time possible. Some other clubs seem to have taken a blanket approach and cancelled the full season, which I, for one, think seems a little OTT.

What we may have to do is rearrange some of the cancelled events after we get the all clear to go back to normal. This may mean extending the season into the October, as always, weather permitting.

We will, of course, keep you all informed if this was to take place. John Bilton

All current Club activity is suspended until further notice, other events listed elsewhere may be cancelled/postponed and whilst we will endeavour to list them where appropriate on the noticeboard HERE it is down to individuals to check out the related websites for more information.
