The Government is currently advising to suspend all non-essential activities to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. Archery GB has also recommended shutting down all grass-roots archery activity unless stringent plans and risk assessments can be can be put in place to meet the Government recommendations. The committee has considered this carefully and feel the only responsible action we can take is to close down all access to shooting at the field.
As Government advice changes we will re-assess and will try to re-open when it seems safe and responsible.
In the mean time a small rota of volunteers will be keeping the grass cut. We will keep this groups small and with suitable hygiene precautions.
Unfortunately this also means that the beginners course, due to start on April 25th, is postponed indefinitely. All people who have applied and paid will be offered a full refund if they wish. They will be given first refusal on spaces when we are able to put on a course.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to send an email to the Secretary at the usual email address. Please can you also include a phone number as an alternative way of contacting, because some emails responses seem to be ending up in spam filters, and if the first one goes in the spam filter it is not going to work for me to keep sending them the same way.
