COVID-19 Update – 14th September 2020

In light of the new measures announced by the UK Government to control the spread of Coronavirus, the BRAT Executive Committee met on 13th Sept 2020 to discuss implications for the club and its activities.

We are pleased to confirm, that after reviewing all of the guidance, we are able to continue as we are for the majority of our training sessions. This will be reviewed if any further guidance is issued either nationally or locally.

Importantly, to ensure we can continue to offer Covid secure training, all members must adhere to the following:

Thanks everyone. Please pay very close attention to the instructions issued by session leaders and coaches. We must ensure we are all actively following the guidance as issued, and ensure we remain socially distanced particularly prior to and after each session. We understand that some members may not wish to continue training in group sessions at this time, and we ask that all members are respectful of everybody’s decisions whether they choose to train together or on their own during this time.

If any member wishes to discuss any aspect of the club’s activity in relation to the current guidance, please contact welfare@bratclub.co.uk.

Wishing you happy and safe training,

Chris Davy

BRAT Chairman
