A Message from the Cavalier and Chevette Club Regarding COVID-19

2020 is turning out to be one of the most challenging times in living memory. But we are gradually coming to terms with the fact that this is a very real threat and potentially here to stay for a

while.

Most of the event that we would attend in the Classic Car Scene are being cancelled. The NEC Restoration Show, Bicester Sunday Scramble VBOA Show, Silverstone Classic and lots of smaller

Show. I fear this is going to impact our hobby for the rest of this year. The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), of which the Cavalier and Chevette Club is a member, has issued

its own guidance to clubs.

This guidance can be found at the link:- https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/news/article/coronavirus

Advice from the WHO and the UK government is being followed. As soon as we have any more news, it will be posted accordingly.

Our thoughts are with those members in society who will undoubtedly suffer throughout this time. People that have elderly relatives and people in the care system. People with school children

also worrying about how they will cope.

This is a very difficult time for the world, every sector of society is being affected.

However, folks stay safe, stay positive, help others, treat each other with respect, kindness, don't panic buy.

Cavalier and Chevette Club Launch Cadet Membership.

Cadet Membership has been created so that younger people with an interest in Vauxhall Cavaliers, Vauxhall Chevettes and associated models can get involved in Classic Cars. We’re not trying to segregate the club into young and old far from it. We are trying to encourage more young people to go and purchase a Vauxhall Cavalier or Vauxhall Chevette in order to help protect the future of these car’s and introduce a new generation to Classic Car Ownership. You don’t have to own a Cavalier or Chevette or even have to have passed your driving test to be a member, just an interest in the cars is sufficient. So, if you are aged 25 years or younger then you are welcome to join the Cadet Membership. Please find below a summary of the membership. Cadet membership – Eligibility: Any person under 25 will be eligible for Cadet Membership. Under 18 years of age, potential members must provide written parental/guardian consent to join.
