Coronavirus Update – Oct 2021

Most of our activities are now up and running again as restrictions have eased.  However, we continue to keep a close eye on the situation and up to date with any changes in government guidelines.  All clubs and activities have new Risk Assessments that are kept live to reflect the current situation. 

Our Multi Sports Club started back face to face in June/July with tennis, and we are now running 6 cycling sessions, with more sessions announced for Nov/Dec with The Gym Tin and Taekwondo – please see our Multi Sports tab for more details.   

We enjoyed 3 Youth Club sessions over the summer holidays, and started back properly on 16th September.

Our drama club also re-started at the end of September.

See the relevant club tabs for further information.

Meanwhile stay safe and do email us if you have any questions.
