With 'Legal' Covid restrictions now lifted, NECPWA are able to run a limited event programme in 2021. However some venues that the Club use will be applying their own rules on entry. Members are reminded that if attending any event, everyone should follow the Governments latest Coronavirus (COVID‑19) and Social Distancing Advice to 'Stay Safe' so we can all continue to meet safely.

From the Chairman & Executive Committee…
The last sixteen months has had a considerable effect on our Club and its members. Who would have thought that our activities could have been so curtailed, from lack of rallies, restrictions on Branch meetings, to the reduction of the magazine to an online version? All these meant inevitably that members, unable to meet face-to-face with others and, if not online, would have felt deserted to some extent. Circumstances dictated that other methods of communication were restricted by cost, inconvenience to volunteers and the sheer pace of change of restriction rules.
Therefore, we would like to put on record our thanks to those members who, despite all these problems (which they have paid to endure!), have retained their memberships and continue to support the Club. We will, of course, do our best to resume full normal service as soon as possible – a few events already held have proved successful and welcome - and hope that, perhaps, the hard copy magazine that is due to reach you all shortly is an indication of more ‘normal’ times to come.
Commencing on September 5th 2021 Tyneside Branch, Breakfast and Coffee Meets are to be held year round on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays of the month (unless another Branch Rally event is scheduled - Click Here -).
These are held at Red Fox Gardenworld & Coffee Shop Gateshead (1st Sunday), Earsdon Farm Shop Earsdon (2nd Sunday), Daniels Farm Shop Wylam (3rd Sunday)and Newbiggin By The Sea Maritime Centre (4th Sunday).
All of the above can be attended in a Classic or Modern car, weather (and car) dependant. Location maps are available online HERE

IMPORTANT!! - every Visitor and Exhibitor to Beamish Museum has to fill out a 'Track And Trace' Form or they will be denied entry. Each member of a party in a car has to complete the form i.e. if 4 members of a family attend in one car, under government guidelines, the museum requires 4 returned forms. It has to be done online at - Click Here -
Friends of Beamish Members and Beamish Unlimited Pass holders still require a NECPWA Season Ticket to take their car onto the rally field as these tickets do not cover the Classic Car Display.

2020 The year never to be forgotten
Who would think we would miss sitting under brollies keeping the Sun off or as in some cases the Rain!
No Christmas meals with members this year or Summer evening road runs with a meal out at some little country pub at the end.
No local branch meetings for a natter or quiz/game (and a meal out) # Sometimes I wonder if we are a Classic Car Club or a Dining Club? #
Some of us have found it quite lonely not having day to day contact with other like-minded people, we hope this coming year we will be able to get the old motors out and take them for glorious runs to shows & rallies and then of course, have a meal out on the way home! Happy Days
When I was at school and did History, most people can remember 1665 as being “The year of the Great Plague” I wonder what kids are taught in the future about 2020 ? will it be Covid 19 or Brexit finally been done and dusted ?
Take Care & Stay safe, hope to see you all in 2021John & Helen Bilton31st July 2020
