On Thursday 25th March, BF hosted its second session in a series of discussions dedicated to updating clubs on the progress of the government’s COVID Roadmap for England. Read the latest details below and find out more about the next planned session.
As part of England’s roadmap BF will look to run a discussion session prior to each expected stage. Please note that specific guidance from the government, including how sport is affected by each stage, will not be confirmed until one week before the restrictions are due to change. With this in mind, and as stage dates may be pushed by the government with limited notice, any community discussion dates in this series could be subject to last minute changes.
Stage 2 expected 12th April
The next session in the series is scheduled for Thursday 8th April. Registration information will be sent out to all registered Club Admins and COVID 19 Officers, ensure your club’s profile is up to date by logging into the membership platform. To assign your COVID-19 Officer follow the instructions here.
We will, as always, keep our website as up to date as possible. It is a good idea to bookmark the following pages for the latest guidance. All these can be found under the COVID-19 section of the main menu;
