LATEST COVID 19 LOCKDOWN POLICY

as from September 14th 2020

 

As a charity and responsible public organisation, we have a duty to ensure our members abide by Government advice and we keep the safety of our members and the public paramount.  Although lockdown restrictions are changing regularly, the core guidance has not changed the MVT‘s existing policy regarding the organisation of Area Meetings and public events; they continue to be suspended until further notice.

 

However, in the light of recent changes to the law, in particular the “Rule of 6”, we request that members also adhere to this guidance and do not meet up and/or attend events in groups, in the name of the MVT. This also applies to organised road runs, as these can be seen as a means of transmitting the virus between areas.

 

As a direct result of these new restrictions, we will continue to suspend the Vehicle Verification service for the safety of our volunteer inspectors.

 

Members are also requested to follow additional local or international restrictions.

 

We all know our vehicles draw immediate attention where ever they go, so let’s be vigilant and follow the MVT’s Code of Conduct and behave in a thoughtful and responsible way.

 

Please stay ‘Stay Alert’, not just for yourself but for everyone else.

 

The arrangements for local area lockdown and the related Government guidance are being updated regularly.

 

Please check for the current Government guidance and any local arrangements at all times.

 

About SHMVT:

The South Hampshire Area is a local branch of the MVT and has members who share the aims of the Charitable Trust which was established for the purpose of restoring and preserving military vehicles of historical interest including the preservation of books, drawings, documents, sound and visual recordings, films, photographs and other media and ephemera relating to such vehicles.

 

MVT member vehicles include the well known Jeep through to tanks, transporters, lorries, landrovers, motor bikes, the humble folding bicycle and range from pre First World War to the present day.

 

In fulfilling our Charitable objectives we exhibit our vehicles at various public shows and events instilling in others the role these vehicles have played in the historic context of world conflict, and endeavour to ensure our younger generations are aware of our heritage and the debt we owe to all branches of the armed forces.

 

All members are proud of the standard of their vehicles and often this is reflected in the frequent requests for vehicles for film and TV work, charitable and commemorative events.

 

The South Hampshire Area meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, 8.00pm Salon bar at the Golden Lion PO17 6EB in the village of Southwick (Suthwyk) (Unless ordered otherwise by General Mayhem).  

 

Come and sample a pint of Old Dick or Liberation ale, served by our host Greg and Jane in the same bar once used as the unofficial Officers' Mess for the senior Allied Commanders who were planning OPERATION OVERLORD at nearby Southwick House.

 

We really are a friendly bunch and welcome guests.

The Military Vehicle Trust (MVT) is an organisation dedicated to the conservation of all forms of ex-military vehicles.

 

Formed by historic military vehicle enthusiasts, The Military Vehicle Trust has grown into one of the largest military vehicle preservation groups in existence with branches worldwide and a membership of thousands.
