Noggin Meetings

Post date: 2021-01-05

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) rules and restrictions are being set by the governments of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the Welsh Assembly, and by local or regional authorities as and when required.

Local Noggin groups should only hold meetings, gatherings, drives-outs, etc. in line with 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.

Whilst shielding advice remains in force it is up to individual members to only attend local Noggin meetings/gatherings if they feel safe to do so.

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 rules now vary on a regional basis - see below to work out what applies to your area:

As the country changes the classifications of restriction into localised levels, there are varying approaches by devolved authorities and it has become necessary to evolve guidance on a localised basis. 

The best way to keep up to date with your own area is via the Government link:
