Coronavirus guidance - read the latest advice on events and local group meets here

TR Action 323

TR Action 323

Well, the restrictions continue to be lifted but, as yet, there are no planned Devon events I’m afraid, although I’m pleased to see a number of members getting out, in groups of no more than 6, taking the opportunity to meet at some local places of interest and enjoy some walks and fresh air in our lovely county - the attached photo shows a few Devon cars stretching their legs on Dartmoor towards Saddle Tor. Many of us also continue to keep in touch with our fortnightly Zoom meetings; with the chance to say hi to each other and chat as well as share stories and enjoy the odd challenge to identify members’ cars and obscure TR parts.

Andrew has produced another issue of our In the Garage newsletter and I’m pleased to see that there are some interesting car improvements, repairs and rebuild topics from a few new contributors, so thank you to them and well done everyone for keeping the stories coming in.

I’m pleased to welcome a number of new members to our Devon area, I hope I’m keeping you up to date through our mailing system and I look forward to meeting you later in the year. If anyone in Devon is reading this and doesn’t get emails from me, please do let me know, so that I can put that right.

The voting for our replacement logo has now completed and I can confirm that we have a convincing 72% in favour of logo nr.1. I shall now be putting this forward to the TR Register Management Team for their approval for our future use. I’ll keep you posted on what we have planned next time.

I’m also keeping in touch with the licensees at our club night venue, the Traveller’s Rest at Whitestone. There’s every likelihood that they’ll be opening soon but the restrictions on numbers at public gatherings will still prevent us from reinstating our meetings but if you’re passing that way, I’d encourage you to call in and meet our new hosts Fiona and Russell.

Until next time, look after yourselves, Alan
