Following the latest advice from the Government announced at 5.00pm today, British Canoeing has issued the following statement:
“In light of the Prime Minister’s advice this evening and in the interest of the safety and well-being of all members of our community, it is with regret that we are announcing the cancellation of all British Canoeing events and gatherings, with immediate effect from now until 30 April 2020. We will keep this end date under careful review and extend it as necessary.
This does of course regrettably include any events that were scheduled for this weekend (21-22 March).
We acknowledge that the cancellation of domestic competitions and gatherings will impact greatly on the paddling community.”
Further clarification on club training to come tomorrow. The Polo Committee is meeting (conference call) on Thursday evening to begin to determine the ramifications for this season.
Wash your hands. Keep social distance. Flatten the curve. Be kind.
Sending our support to all those on the front line in the NHS as well as those facing working pressures (especially teachers).
