ACCESS TO POOLE PARK - Posted - 9th October 2020


From 13th October the road into the park from the bottom of Twemlow Avenue turning right thro the park gates will be closed to traffic to allow for the installation of crossing places and road resurfacing.

It should not affect the clubs activities.  Also please be aware that the amount of cycle traffic on Whitecliff Road (thro the keyhole bridge) has increased in both speed and numbers.  Please be extra alert for their presence when driving off or executing 3 point turns.
















 Covid-19 Keeping us informed - 21st September 2020

As you may have heard one of our members has gone into self isolation whilst awaiting a relative’s test result for Covid-19. Hopefully this will be negative but we will keep you informed of developments. 

This and the recent guidance released from the MYA means that we have to have a document in place which guides us through a procedure if this occurs again. 

If a member feels unwell he should keep away from club activities. 

It is imperative, as happened in this case, that the club is informed and until tests have shown there is no need for concern those involved do not come down to the club. 

 If a club member has been in contact with someone showing symptoms they should be in self isolation for 14 days and be tested if they develop any symptoms. 

If a club member has symptoms he should immediately inform one of the committee so that we can alert other members who may have had very recent contact with that person. 

 If any of the above are relevant to you please keep the committee informed of all developments both positive and negative. 

Please remember that we are trying to protect our members who almost exclusively fit in the “At Risk Group” due to age alone if not a myriad of underlying health conditions. You may feel that you can “Weather the Storm” so nothing to worry about, but others are far more vulnerable. 

Part of this protection is that all 6 people attending a club racing session must make sure that they or the safety officer has them “signed in” (please print clearly) and a contact phone number, preferably mobile, left. We can be asked to produce this track and trace information in the event of a suspected outbreak.
