Club Update – 7/8/20

, , ,
Thank you for your patience whilst we work on a return to club running post lockdown!

Your K&D Committee Covid Sub Group have been working extremely hard on the logistics of getting us back to club runs in a covid secure environment. I would like to place on record my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all those who have given up their time deciphering the guidance and putting together such a comprehensive plan of action. Tremendous work by all!

We felt the time was right to update you all so please read on.  There are links and email addresses to get in touch should you need more information so please feel free to contact them as they will have all the answers.

Hope to see you soon.


Covid Officer

In line with England Athletics’s advice we have appointed a Covid Officer (Caroline Edwards) and we are working together on a plan for returning to running as a Club.  We are not in position to announce the return date yet as we need to make sure we have every thing planned and tested.  As soon as we have everything in place we will let you know.  If you have any concerns in the meantime please email  and Caroline will direct your question to the right person.

EA Advice

Membership Update

Also in line with EA Advice we are now seeking payment of your membership fees which will fall due on 1st September 2020

You will, no doubt, have already seen reminders and don’t worry because Ann Spencer-Dowdeswell will be chasing you with a big cudgel should your payment fall overdue.
For those of you who kindly paid during lockdown (thank you) there be partial refunds which are currently being arranged by Lissy, our Treasurer.

The email address for membership queries is  

If you are a new member who has never before been officially signed up then information on the sign up process will be online in a few days.

How will we ensure running is safe for our members and the public?

We have a Risk Assessment in place and are working in line with EA and UK Government advice regarding self-assessment, exposure to Covid and maximum group numbers.  There will be some communications in the next few weeks advising you of our plans.
