Coronavirus Statement: last updated 17 March at 9am
The UK government has advised that everyone in the UK should now avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to fight coronavirus. Whilst it has not issued any ban on public gatherings of any size either indoors or outdoors at this stage, the advice is to avoid non-essential contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.
As a result, England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.
Message from the head coach with the support of the committee :
In response to the way events have escalated re: “The
Coronavirus” I feel it is prudent in the circumstances to cease
organised club training until a time that it is deemed safe to resume.
It is a tough decision to make but I think it is correct to follow
government health advice.
