Noggin Meetings

Post date: 2020-06-26

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation appears to be improving restrictions have started to be eased and pubs, restaurants, etc. can re-open with distancing requirements.

The governments of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the Welsh Assembly have/will set their own different dates for easing restrictions. Restrictions can be imposed by Governments/Assembly or any local or regional authority as and when required.

Therefore, local Noggin groups could resume meetings, gatherings and drives-out, providing that they adhere to the latest guidance from Governments/Assembly or any local or regional restrictions in force at the time. It is important for everyone to keep up to date with and understand all regulations and guidance in force in their area at all times.

In addition to Government guidance, the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) has issued guidance on their website, which can be viewed at

The current shielding advice remains in force until 01 August and it is up to individual members if they attend local Noggin meetings/gatherings when they feel safe to do so.
