As you will be aware those of us who live in Sussex are now in the government’s coronavirus tier 4, to go alongside those of you who live in Kent and Surrey. However the rules do allow under 18s to take part in group training sessions, subject to the maintenance of 2 metres social distancing rules.
This means that under 18s can come to the East Court training sessions we have already arranged for THURSDAY DECEMBER 31 and SUNDAY JANUARY 3. The sessions will run from 10.30 to 11.45 or thereabouts. Under 18 athletes who live in Surrey or Kent can also come to these sessions.
The weather this week looks as if it will be very cold – possibly some snow – and you should therefore make sure you have sensible warm clothing with you. In particular it is perfectly OK for you to wear gloves. Scarves are also OK provided you don’t leave them loose to flap around.
The races that were due to take place at the Ardingly Showground on Saturday January 2 have been cancelled – because of the virus -and the next races are due to be on Saturday January 23.
We are due to re-start at Imberhorne Upper School on Thursday January 7. We will let you know in due course if this is likely to happen.
