Current advice

At the moment it would appear that this part of England is a low risk area. However, we feel that we should take note of the advice being given and be watchful.

The most important advice is to thoroughly wash hands and more frequently (singing the National Anthem slowly is about the right length of time)

The infection is not serious for most people – they recover after a week or so with rest and hydration. However, if you do feel you have the symptoms, contact the NHS help line on 111.

Public Health England continue to monitor the situation closely and state that you can only catch the virus if you have been in close contact with someone who already has it.

At present, as far as the Club is concerned, we continue to function as before but suggest that extra washing of hands before and after training is a good move.

England Athletics registration packs go digital for 2020/21

From 1 April 2020, athlete registration packs will be sent out in digital form, via email, rather than as printed copies. With faster delivery, the new digital packs will also enable athletes to access key information at their fingertips and allow users to save their digital registration card to their desktop, tablet or mobile phone. To ensure athletes can receive their packs digitally, clubs must provide a valid email address for each athlete they register and athletes should ensure their email address is up-to-date on their myAthletics profile.
