:: [ CORONA VIRUS EPIDEMIC HAS CANCELLED ALL 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 therefore had no option but to advise that
   ALL SVVS MEETINGS ARE NOW CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 
It is anticipated that Government restrictions will tighten even further for the next few months and it is therefore prudent to assume that we will not be in a position, nor be allowed, to recommence activities for the time being. We are simply not in a position to even take a guess as to when normality will return because UK Government strategy is based on not having only one major epidemic peak, but a number of smaller peaks. We are currently anticipating that the majority of our planned Summer Events are not likely to occur. Please keep a regular eye on the SVVS Magazine and SVVS Website for updates on meetings restarting.

:: [Fidlers Field 2. Godstone   -  August 2020  ] ::
As SVVS are not allowed to organise meetings within the Coronaviarus Regulations, our outside meetings are CANCELLED for the rest of the year.  It was however agreed that Members can meet privately. Two such events are organised by Malcolm Ward in Fidlers Field, Godstone, and are made open to SVVS Members to attend but entirely at their own risk. At the second meeting there were 20 vehicles, all shapes, ages and sizes and total number of people attending did nor exceed the 30 limit.

August Bi-cycle

:: [August Bi-cycle  -  August 2020  ] ::
Coronavirus continues play havoc with our Events Programme by not allowing our normal meetings to take place. So, as nothing much again in normal Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society gatherings, we have continued to encourage all our members and friends to take photographs instead. Some of our friends, such as Stephen Laing, continue  'socially cycling', even joining proper Cycle Clubs. Those less energetic may be interested in power assistance as that provided by the Trojan Mini-Motor for bikes.

Independence Day

:: [  Independence Day   -  July 2020  ] ::
Coronavirus remains the 'sci-fi alien bug' which all governments are uniting to overcome, and the ban on public meetings ontinues, but July 4th is apparently 'Independence Day'.  So, as nothing much again in normal Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society car gatherings, we have continued to encourage all our members to take photographs instead. Some of our Members continue  'socially cycling' and have sent photos. The cycling theme continues,  but thankfully cars seem to be returning!  

The June Bug

:: [  The June Bug   -  June 2020  ] ::
Coronavirus continues play havoc with our Events Programme by not allowing our normal meetings to take place. This however does not stop some Members taking their daily exercise. This month we continue the 'history of cycling' theme with dangerous acrobatic contributions from our  Matt Tester on his Penny Farthing, and more sedate exploits of Michel Gosset's Velo-Solex now belonging to Andy Coombes, and student historical adventures of Chairman Bozi Mohacek on a Velo-Vap.

Flaming June

:: [  Flaming June -  June 2020  ] ::
Coronavirus continues play havoc with our Events Programme by not allowing our normal meetings to take place. This however does not stop some of our Members taking their daily exercise while fully complying with the regulations. This month we continue the cycling theme with contributions from our 'cycling correspondent' Chas Moody out and about on his 'Hercules' bicycle, and historic background by Chairman Bozi Mohacek on his very first bicycle in England, -  also a Hercules ??  

May B or Maybe Not

:: [  May B, or Maybe Not - May 2020  ] ::
Coronavirus continues play havoc with our Events Programme by not allowing our normal meetings to take place. This however does not stop some of our Members taking their daily exercise while fully complying with the regulations. This month we continue the cycling theme with contributions from our 'cycling correspondent' Chas Moody. Additional static passive non-exertion type of information supplied by Chairman Bozi Mohacek about old bicycles found discarded in the Farm cowshed.  

The Cycling Buds of May

:: [ The Cycling Buds of May - May 2020 ] ::
Coronavirus continues play havoc with our Events Programme by not allowing our normal meetings to take place.

Additional static passive non-exertion type of  information supplied by Chairman Bozi Mohacek.  

The FBHVC Drive-it-Day

:: [ The FBHVC Drive-it-Day - April 2020 ] ::
The Coronavirus also put paid to the FBHVC's annual Drive-it-Day in April when all owners of historic vehicles are normally encouraged to take them for a drive on the roads and publicize the popularity of our movement. The FBHVC encouraged all instead to take photos of their machinery and share them on Social Media. Many of our Members are of the elederly variety so were hankered down anyway and too old to know what this new fangled social media is. Instead, some sent photos to us. 

The Gambol Run

:: [ The Gambol Run, Smallfield - April 2020 ] ::
As Coronavirus had wiped out the entire SVVS Events Programme for the time being, I have been taking photos of what has been very much moving and running around without interruption here on the Farm. The lambing season was very much in progress and fields were filling up with noisy fluffy baaaing wooly bundles demanding constant attention. The Gambol Run 2020 was very much in progress ! There are a number of breeds at the farm and that is why not all sheep and lambs look alike.

Moody's Virtual  81st  Pioneer Motorcycle Run

    :: [ Moody's Virtual 81st Pioneer Motorcycle Run - March 2020 ] ::
The "Pioneer Run" is organised by the Sunbeam Motorcycle Club and has become one of the main events in the Veteran Motorcycle Movement, and draws a gathering of over 300  pre 1915 solos, sidecars and tricycles from all over the world, Regretfully due to the Coronavirus Epidemic it has had to be cancelled but this did not deteer our Memb Sec Chas Moody from taking out his fully fettled 1914 Triumph TT Roadster for a daunting run of 'one' in the beutiful spring flowered lanes of Surrey

SVVS Lunchtime Meeting at the Sportsman, Mogador

    :: [ SVVS Lunchtime Meeting - Sportsman, Mogador - March 2020] ::
This venue is being visited for the second time, and the same thing happened as last year: it HAILED !! Maybe it is the time of the year or it being on a hill, but out from a dismally grey cloud it suddenly started deluging and hailing great chunks of ice. Also this year 'Coronavirus' was devastating China and Italy, and was rapidly spreading within Britain with a number of deaths. So not an overwhelming turnout was expected, nor got ! We had 10 Proper Cars,  and a number of moderns.

SVVS Lunchtime Meeting, Cock Inn, Headley

    :: [ SVVS Lunchtime Meeting - Cock Inn, Headley - February 2020] ::
The Cock at Headley is our first outside meeting of the year so the weather can be pot luck. Yesterday was lovely sunny, warmish and dry. Just perfect for taking the dogs for a hike in the countryside. Last night, red and amber weather warnings. Today Storm Ciara was battering the whole of the UK, flooding complete towns, closing many roads, washing away railways, shutting down airports and cutting off power. Therefore quite surprisingly we did have ONE Proper Car navigate the fallen trees!

SVVS New Year's Meeting, Reigate

:: [ New Year's Day Lunchtime - Beehive, Woodhatch - January 2020 ] ::
New Year's Day 2019 was dull, grey and miserable but it was neither raining or snowing so winter-stored cars came out reluctantly without getting dirty or wet. or requiring major re-conservation. This resulted in a relatively reasonable turnout of 26 proper cars and a couple of moderns. Our ranks were swelled by a number of non-members who came with SVVS friends and preferred to join us rather than the scrum at Brooklands they experienced last year. Very Happy New Year to all !
