Centre News

Dear all

 

I know how excited you must be to be able to resume rallies after the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 22 February, and the devolved nations’ roadmaps out of lockdown. 

 

As you are probably aware the Club is anticipating being able to reopen Club sites in England on 12 April 2021, although we are still awaiting confirmation regarding certain aspects relating to shared facilities. In addition travel between countries (ie between England, Wales, Scotland and NI remains restricted, and guidance has not been provided yet in Scotland, Wales or NI). For example the guidance in England is that domestic travel after 8 March is permitted but should be minimised (eg. stay local).

 

In brief, and please note that these dates and details are obviously subject to change as per the announcements from the respective Governments.  Please make an informed decision before deciding when to commence rallying, mindful that the dates could change.

 

Step 2 (no earlier than 12 April 2021)

England

Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it, and all members must comply with the Government’s guidance regarding social contact, and group size outdoors.

Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally.

Step 3 (no earlier than 17 May 2021)

England

There can now be a maximum of 30 people outdoors. This means social activities on a rally can resume but for only a maximum of 30 people. 

A Covid Risk Assessment is still required to be submitted to governance seven days before the start of the rally.

The Rule of Six applies to indoor meetings and two households (a van represents one household) are permitted to meet. 

Step 4 (no earlier than 21 June 2021)

England

There are no longer any restrictions on social gatherings at rallies. 

It is likely that there will still be a requirement to have Covid Risk Protocols in place on rallies and more details of this will be advised at a later date. 

 

All Centre rallies and events must continue to have a Risk Assessment undertaken, per Centre Guidance, and this is to be held on record with the Centre Committee per the GDPR data retention plan. This is good practice to ensure safety on a rally and will be a good reference should anything go wrong. 

Reminders to ralliers about handwashing and compliance with any Government regulations are to be followed. 

 

No earlier than 1 April 2021 (Easter Weekend)

Wales

Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it.

Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally.

 

Date TBC

Northern Ireland

Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities associated with it. 

Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally.

 

No earlier than 26 April 2021

Scotland

Rallies can commence but as a campsite only; there can be no social activities. Scotland will remain in level 3.

Covid secure protocols must still be adhered to and a Covid Risk Assessment is to be sent to governance@camc.com seven days before the start of the rally.

NB. We are aware that the Centres in Scotland have decided to cancel all rallies until the end of May 2021.

It is with great sadness that Fran Phillips sadly lost her long battle with cancer, she passed peacefully at St Barnabas hospice in Worthing with her family around her.

She was a beacon of the club and a wonderful former chairperson.

The clubs thoughts are with Scott, Tia, Dean, Freda, Pete and Paul.

Update 14th January 2021:

Scott would like members of the club who knew Fran to have details about a link for Frans funeral.

Please contact Scott directly via e-mail - fran.scott@ntlworld.com
