Sport and Recreation Sector Update


Posted: Thu, 11th Jun 2020

Outdoor Gatherings Increase to 20 from Saturday 13 June

In the ever changing world that is the easing of restrictions please see below the most recent information from the Office of Sport, what does this mean for pony club I hear you all ask?

From Saturday 13th June clubs may hold training/rally days with groups of up to 20 per group instead of the 10 listed in the risk assessment document on our website. The risk assessment document is to be used as a template (example) for clubs and can be amended as changes occur to the Public Health Orders. Clubs will need to complete a Covid Safety Plan here and send a copy of their risk assessment to the office for insurance purposes.

Clubs who have canteens can look at re-opening these as well however please remember that you will need to follow the guidelines surrounding serving of food on top of the other Covid safety precautions so for those of you that haven’t as yet run a rally day maybe leave the canteen until next time.

Hopefully we will receive some guidelines regarding competitions from the 1st July once we have more information we will share that with you.
