GUIDANCE

Just to remind everyone that we are following the guidance below

1 All events will be limited to 12 cars and entry will be on a first come basis.

2 Entrants will need to register before the event so that there is a record of attendance in case there is a need to “track and trace”

3 We need to avoid the “procession of cars” which gives the wrong impression.

4 To avoid crowds and obey the social distancing rules we will need to be extra careful and choose locations and days that are less crowded, this will probably mean mid week events.

5 Food and facilities are the main issue, so “picnics” will be the main option and finding locations which also have toilets.

FINALLY

Last month we were informed about one of our members Lesley Wilkins who is a type 1 diabetic and so in the most vulnerable group for COVID-19. To help others with diabetes she is undertaking the Million Step Challenge to help raise funds for Diabetes UK. It started on 1st July and so far she has completed over 350,000 steps If you could donate a few pounds that would be great.
