You will all be aware that the Government have moved from ‘Containment’ to the ‘Delay’ phase of our Country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, in the last few days you will have heard that a number of sporting events have also been postponed and that the Government are now considering the implementation of legislation to prevent large gatherings with the aim of social distancing to reduce the short term impact on our health service.
As a Committee we have discussed this rapidly changing picture and with a heavy heart we have decided to postpone this year’s AGM which was due to be held at the Wisteria Hotel on the 17 April. As a running and triathlon club, our member’s health and wellbeing continues to be a priority and at this time we feel it is the right decision to delay this event. However, we really hope that we will be able to reschedule this later in the year in order to look back at the last 12 months and celebrate some of your amazing achievements.
In relation to our weekly training and other regular club sessions these have also been cancelled until the situation with the Covid-19 virus allows our activities to resume.
As a Committee we really appreciate your understanding and hope that these small considerations are short term and will see us through this challenging time. For further information we would recommend the NHS or .GOV websites which have up to date measures which will be implemented to help keep us and our loved ones safe.
