Firstly, thank you for your patience over the last few months. We really appreciate your continued support in making this a safe and successful club.
Following the revised social distancing measures which were recently announced by the government, the club committee has been seeking further guidance and advice from Sport England and the various National Governing Bodies (NGBs). We believe we can now restart some of the club’s activities, but this can only be done if all of us act responsibly and abide by the “social distancing” rules specified by the government.
The Committee has and will continue to monitor the situation and update you weekly when new information is provided. Our aim is to keep everyone safe - members, coaches, volunteers, members of staff and the public.
Therefore, we have agreed that the following activities will restart this week. We must stress that this is not a “return to normal”. There will be no formal club sessions – what we are doing is making the lake available for club members to use for their own exercise in line with the current government rules.
This has meant putting in extra restrictions and limitations on all the activities that are being allowed to take place. Unfortunately, it also means that restarting some club activities will be delayed until a safe way of operating can be agreed.
We have laid out the following timescales and new rules that have temporary been introduced for your safety. Please see the comments under the section, your section leader will advise any details on changes and how the section will operate.
