~~~~~~~~~~ 12.04.21 UPDATE ~~~~~~~~~~

A little bit of good news which will allow us to get back to training and competitions.

Organised UNDER 18's sport is now permitted

Organised outdoor sports activities involving up to 30 people including over 18's will now be able to start from the 26th April

so venues with two outdoor arenas will then be able to run competitions and training.

Indoor schools can be used from the 3rd May for training and Indoor Arenas can be used for organised sports with upto 15 people from the 10th May, so venues with an indoor and outdoor arena can run competitions from that date.


Soo with all this in mind we are recommencing our training with flatwork lesson with Sam Whyley for the U18's on Monday 19th April and a jumping lesson with Rachel George on Friday 23rd April. 24th April Richard starts back with flat lesson available to all members
