Other events including the 2020 Rally remain cancelled.
Below is the advice we have been given by the National MMOC:
Branch and Club Activity
Considering the most recent government information and MMOC branch activity at a local level,
it is the view of the Directors of the MMOC that all branches should also follow the current and
future government advice and take their own measures to locally reduce the spread of this
virus. It is our view that all branches should strongly consider postponing or cancelling their local
monthly branch meetings, rallies and events until the national picture becomes clearer.
This is an unprecedented crisis and requires co-ordinated action by agencies and organisations at
national, county and local levels across the UK. The Directors of the MMOC strongly urge branch
committees to adopt a sensible, proactive and definitive stance and to play their part in tackling
the Covid-19 virus. The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), of which the
MMOC is a member, has issued its own guidance to clubs. This guidance can be found at the link below:
In conclusion, our overriding intention is to focus on keeping everyone safe. Many of our club
members are in the highly vulnerable age group likely to be at the highest risk of infection. We
fully accept that there will be significant disruptions and changes to the way our members will
need to live their lives over the next few months as we weather this national health crisis.
We want to ensure that members can spend the maximum amount of time caring for their family
and loved ones at this difficult time. We hope and trust that all members will recognise that these
measures, though extreme, are taken to do our part to safeguard the welfare of our
members. The MMOC will survive this unprecedented national emergency and we hope that all
members will support the Directors, Committee and staff and the importance we are placing on
keeping everyone safe.
The Directors and Committee are working extremely hard to safeguard the interests of our
members in a challenging and rapidly changing environment. We are acting on the best advice
we have access to at the time. Our guidance may change as the national guidance
changes. We are keeping the situation under continual daily review and we expect to issue
further guidance as the situation evolves.
