Return to meets - update regarding size of groups
Many of you have been in touch with us during the past 24 hours to ask how the new rulings over group sizes in the outdoors in England will impact on club meets. We have been busy working with partners to try to understand the implications.
However, Sport England has today announced “While social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from 14 September, the government’s confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue, as can organised outdoor sports and physical activity events”. The full statement can be viewed at https://www.sportengland.org/how-we-can-help/coronavirus/return-play
This means that if clubs follow the guidance set out in the BMC document COVID-19 guidelines for groups of outdoor climbers & hill walkers they will be able to continue to plan and run meets in England for more than 6 people. The full guidance is available at www.thebmc.co.uk/covid19-restarting-club-meets
