We have produced this Risk Assessment to help our club comply with the current government guidelines. As they change so will this page so please keep checking for updates. 

The responsibility for a safe environment is shared between the instructor and the members. Members must make their own risk assessment when it comes to the decision to train. Anyone should symptoms related to Covid 19, or those whom have been in contact with someone who has had Covid 19, or suspected of having the virus, must follow government guidelines on isolation and timescales.

3. users should wash their hands thoroughly after using these facilities. hand sanitiser will also be available.

class bookings & PRE-payment

1. classes will be restricted in numbers to allow social distancing to take place. this means that classes during the summer will need to be be pre booked to ensure the rent is paid and the club survives. we are asking that students book their place for the full month and if they can't attend they let their instructor know so that their place can be given to others.
