Coronavirus Advice

All members are recommended to follow the advice given out by Public Health England for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus.
Specifically in relation to training we advise all members to wash their hands thoroughly before coming to training and again after training (either at the venue or as soon as you get home).
Please do not come to training if you or any member of your household is unwell with symptoms of cold or flu.
You may also be aware that there has been a single report of a dog that tested weakly positive for the virus, the owner had tested positive. With this in mind we would advise you not to feed any dog but your own.

Toilets are located to the right after entering through the narrow door between the white building and the metal shutters from outside. The toilets are through the door at the bottom of the ramp with rails. There are also some sinks for handwashing outside of the toilet entrance.

wash your hands, use a tissue for coughs, avoid touching your face
