Another update reference the upcoming changes in the Covid Restrictions. As always we will be following the Government restrictions and advice from the BRC. And we’ll be reviewing these restrictions regularly. From 2nd December the UK will be divided into 3 tiers as you know.
And sadly it does mean that at this time, we are unable to facilitate members from Tier 3.
As advised by BRC:
There should be no unnecessary travel into or out of Tier 3. BRC activities would not be considered necessary travel, so whilst events are permitted to be held in Tier 3 areas, they should only be attended by people residing within those areas. Organisers should do their best to enforce these travel restrictions.”
I know this is a difficult time. And as a committee we have thought carefully about the best way to go forward. And so we plan to run the mentoring, as close to normal as possible. Mentoring will look a bit different that this time. And providing Mentors are happy to continue we will running regular clinics.
We ask for your support with these measures at this time. And we all look forward to the time we’ll all be together again to enjoy our lovely sport.
As always if you have any concerns or questions please don’t hesitate to contact either myself or any of the committee members and we’ll do our best to help & support you.
Tracey Matthews (on behalf of the WARC Committee)
I know by now you will all be aware of the latest introduction of a new National Lock Down. And while I’m sure we can all agree this is a necessary measure, it does unfortunately mean that once again we are going to have to cancel our forthcoming mentoring and clinics.
As before we are following the advice from the BRC:
Following the recent announcement of another national lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, we are saddened to announce that the current interpretation is that all BRC activity, bar virtual activity, must cease during this time. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes all activities run under the BRC banner, including competitions, training, clinics and camps.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either myself or one our committee members. We will do what we can to help or advise you.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon, until then, stay safe…
on behalf of your committee
Revised times for Trec this Saturday –
Here you go folks
These are the dates for the next few months
You will notice a new name – Teresa Edmonds – we needed to find a new flatwork/dressage mentor as we sadly lost Jane Ellis due to her having so many other commitments that it was becoming harder and harder for her to commit the time to us too. Teresa is a British Dressage Level 3 accredited coach and is based in Wisbech. She has ridden and trained her own horse to Intermediate 1, and works with all levels from happy hackers to advanced dressage and eventing, nervous riders and/or horses. Some of our members have had lessons with her when they have attended BD training camps and rate her very highly and she is very friendly and helpful.
If any of you fancied a change and wanted to move to mentoring with Teresa, just let me know
So as we come to the end of 2019, a huge thank you from your committee for all the hours you have volunteered at our various events and competitions – in fact an amazing 834 hours over the year. We simply can’t run anything without your valuable support.
Do remember as part of your membership we do ask that you commit to helping out for at least one event in the year – many of you do so much more, some of you not so – let’s make 2020 the year that all of members do just a little bit.
1 hour of help is rewarded with 1 credit/£ towards mentoring, training and clinics.
Here is the hall of fame for 2019 – the list shows the credits everyone has at year-end once any credits you have already redeemed for mentoring sessions or clinics have been deducted.
We have now arranged all the mentoring dates from now until Christmas. They are all on the calendar but here is a handy print out for your fridge door!!
Angela will usually send a round robin email or text a week or so in advance but if you could be proactive and let her know if you are planning to attend your session then that would be great.
If you are a new members and not yet assigned to a mentor – please contact Angela direct
Schedule now available – book your place soon – don’t miss out
