    After a great deal of thought regarding the Corona virus, government advice, and of course the safety of everyone involved with our event we have had to make the decision to move the date of our 2020 event.

    The Great British Day Out for Jaguar Owners 2020 is now set for the 20th September 2020.

    Everyones Access Pass has automatically been switched to the new date, so if you can make the date of our first ever Autumn event, you don't need to do anything - however if you are unable to make the new date you can either request a refund of your registration, or switch it to our 2021 event.

    Everything about our event is remaining the same, as we will all be looking for a GREAT Autumn Jaguar event..

    Please watch our event closely for the next few days for the very latest news on our events switch to its new date....

    Finally, a massive Thankyou to everyone for their support not only in our very difficult decision to move the event date, but over the next few days/weeks as I get everything re-jigged for the new date.

    OK everyone I need to update you with things.. I have made contact with all our incredible sponsors and supporting companies that I have email contact details for, and have asked Holiday Inn Express to move our reserved block forward to the new date. If you do not want your accomodation booking moved to the new date for any reason please contact Holiday Inn Express via the details in the 2020 Event section of our website and they will correct things for you. Equally the link/code has been adjusted to the new dates, so should still work - please let me know if you have any issues at all.

    Also remember that your registration for our event has automatically moved forward to our new event date - if for any reason you cannot make the new date we can refund your registration, or transfer your registration to our 2021 event to make sure you don't miss out on a Great British Day Out - but we would love to see you on the 20th of September

    As I hear more from our sponsors etc I will let you know, and you may have already noted our event website has had it's counter reset for the new date too...

    If anyone has any queries, or issues regarding the change of date, or feels I should have contacted them directly and have not, please, please drop me a line and I will be happy to help resolve any issues you may have as a consequence of the change.

    OK everyone - our event may have been put back a few months, but we still have a Great British Day Out coming up for you so don't forget to register - the more Jaguars we are able to register the better our chances of more specialists, clubs and forums getting involved with us.

    Also we are still looking for specialist recommendations around the world - and don't forget if we already have a specialist listed that you would recommend, still let us know so we can add another star to their entry.

    And finally we are still short of international Jaguar clubs in our Club/Forum Register - so if you are a member of a great Jaguar club, again anywhere in the world please let me know and we will get them listed so everyone can find them.

    During the Corona virus pandemic it is more important than ever that we, in the Jaguar community, look after, and out for each other - please help us to help everyone by making it easier than ever for them to hook into local Jaguar communities, obtain parts and so on.. and we know there is positive news out there that can brighten everyones days so lets get it into our Facebook group, and forum threads.

    Our message to everyone involved with our event is please take care, look after yourselves and please help us to help Jagsters around the world, wherever they may be, connect to their local Jaguar communities and support

    Hi Everyone - it's Stats Friday *but* I am busy setting my day jobs' UK office staff up for a transfer to working from home. As of Monday night I believe that will include me too since most of my IT & Tech support I can do from home remoting onto users computers.

    So, this week is more of a synopsis of where we are currently - rather than figures..

    The majority of our event sponsors are happy to switch to our new date, and I believe that everyone who has booked a trade stand will still be doing so on our revised date.

    We have only (so far) had one cancellation by an attendee (due to a date clash) and have two more possible cancellations so have retained far more attendees than I had feared we might lose.

    I don't believe there is anyone that I haven't either notified about the change in date, or will be aware from our website, Facebook group, or Telegram chat group.

    Our accomodation block has moved forward seamlessly retaining the current bookings, Denbies have cancelled our May booking and agreed our new booking date, and we are back to promoting our event, getting as many Jaguars signed up for the day as we can, and giving everyone a Great British Day Out for Jaguar Owners this Autumn

    My focus, whilst we work through the Corona Virus, getting it under control, is to work on expanding what we offer Jagsters - to ensure that everyone can access the support they need for their Jag with more club listings, more specialists, promoting our chat group, and of course the Classifieds that allow you to buy and sell your jaguar parts safely and virus free

    I am extremely grateful for all the support I have had whilst getting everything moved around regarding our event - a massive Thankyou to everyone.. and now it is just a case of saying to you Please keep safe, as we want to see you at our next event - and if you know any great clubs and specialists our event website does not yet list please, please let me know.

    Hi Guys,

    Just a very brief update in view of the current Corona virus situation here in the UK. Firstly I am now working from home and whilst everything is on hold regarding our event I will not be quite as busy with things here as I usually am. Secondly our Facebook group and Instagram membership/following is increasing quite quickly as people start to come to us for info on where to find support, parts, service, and general news.

    If anyone has any suppliers, repairers, parts suppliers etc they are happy to recommend to Jagsters please let me know and we can pop them up in our Recommended Specialists section - noting it is not just UK specialists we need recommendations on, we need global recommendations from anywhere a Jagster may be.

    Additionally if you know of a great Jaguar club able to offer local support for Jagsters, again anywhere in the world, please let me know and we can get the details up for everyone.

    Whilst a lot of us are working from home, may have lost their job due to this virus, or are helping on the front line supporting and helping people please help us to keep Jagsters in touch with everything out there for them and lets look after one another as best we can.

    There is so much you can do.. you could post any pictures of your Jaguars on the event Facebook group, maybe write a review of a gadget or product you have recently brought that we can put on the event website, recommend clubs or suppliers, or maybe write a 'do-it-yourself' article for our upcoming tech support section on our website covering a simple job on your Jaguar that is so much easier if you know the tricks to make it easier.. so go on, why not make use of your spare time and help us as a community to support all the Jagsters in our community? Help us all, by helping ourselves - hmm, it definitely did not sound like that in my head when I thought about what to put.. lol.. but if ever there was a time for us to help one another online, and develop our event resources to enable even more support for Jagsters - this is the time... please keep safe wherever you are, and help us to help support Jagsters, wherever they are, and their incredible Jaguars.

    I know Friday has always been Stats day for our event, but with the current Coronavirus lockdown, and Jagsters hopefully self isolating with their families, Friday has switched to a more general news and request day..

    I am aware that some Jagsters have already gone down with this terrible virus, and my thoughts are with them and their families at this time.

    I am also self isolating, and have been working from home since Monday night, and as of the 1st of April will be on Furlough leave.. which means a drop in 20% of my income, I am still employed but not allowed to work until taken off Furlough leave which is likely going to mean finally doing some gardening, and am planning to clean the interiors thoroughly on both the S-Type and the C1, which to be honest is well overdue.

    Our annual event, for the first time ever, has been put back to 20th September (subject to review as we go) and now we need to fill our time at home with some Jaguar goodness to keep us going a few more months.

    I am looking for ways in which we can top up on our Jaguar time as I call it, and am looking for anyone who may be able to help with any of the following, enabling us to help all of us get through the cabin fever involved with everything currently..

    Any recommended suppliers/repairers/parts suppliers we can add to our Specialist Register.
    Also if you would like to second someone already recommended please let me know and I can add another star.

    Any stories you may have about your time with Jaguars.

    Details of any clubs or forums that you can recommend to other Jagsters.

    Oddly, if you know any Jaguar orientated jokes they would be very welcome in our Telegram chat group to help brighten some peoples days up.

    If you know any quick fixes for Jaguar issues - why not write a quick guide or article and we will put it up on our event website for everyone.

    Anything anyone can do to help lighten things for our fellow Jagsters and help us get through this time of Coronavirus and the restrictions would be fantastic.

    Any of the above can be emailed to me at stephen.sheldon@jaguarforumsuk.com, equally any ideas anyone has are very, very welcome.

    Meanwhile please keep yourself and your family safe there, as we want to see you at our next event

    and Finally Thankyou so much to everyone for your continued support of our event
