COVID 19 Updates

Dear Members

Following the Government announcement on the 12th July, I can confirm some important changes to our current operations and activities. I am sure you will appreciate that we have tried to take a sensible approach to the restrictions we have lifted, or eased, taking into account we have a Duty of Care to all of our Members and Staff.

From Monday 19th July the following steps will apply:
