Covid 19 Lockdown Restrictions Latest Owners Club Update

Good morning NWM members,

As you rub the sleep from your eyes, do a stretch maybe a great big…yawn! you no doubt will reach for your tablet device to learn what news about any changes to lockdown restrictions.

Sadly no changes as regards driving out in convoys etc but I will leave you to read the full details as emailed to all owners club members this morning.

An update from the MX-5 Owners Club on changes to lockdown restrictions.

As you will be aware advice from the government has been updated with some changes to lockdown restrictions from the end of this week.

Principal changes apply to hospitality industry initially opening in England while restrictions remain in place in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland for a little longer.

However where it comes to Public gatherings, heavy penalties remain within the legislation. This means that the existing rules for general group activity remain unchanged after 4th July and still urge the avoidance of meetings of more than 6 people from different households in an outdoor space and two households indoors (variations exist in the other countries of the UK).

At the current time, the MX-5 Owners Club strongly advises all our organisers and areas teams to continue to work to a programme of postponement of all social activities and refrain from road runs or any other meets in groups, until further notice.

For more details and further information our full statement and guidance can be read here:
