Your DHRC committee have decided to take pro-active steps to ensure our members and families are aware of what to do regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Since the risk level in the UK has risen and given the news of the spread of the virus to Europe we felt it was important for the welfare of our members and families to be open and support each other. It is Important that our families and members take the spread of the virus seriously and we do all we can to prevent it spreading further and putting others at risk. Please check the following pages for the latest updates:

With regards to club activities, we see no reason to suspend any club sessions at the moment, but we strongly advise you all to follow general guidance and that you do not come to sessions if you have any flu or virus symptoms as detailed in the links above. Please also avoid personal contact (and please don’t be offended if others refuse contact) and sanitise your hands before and after where possible. Please also be aware and follow any guidance issued by any of the facilities we use.
If anyone has been to any of the areas that have been classified by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as an ‘all but essential travel’ destination, then please do not attend sessions until 2 weeks after returning to the UK and have no symptoms. Please do get in touch with the Club Welfare Officer (Caroline Greening on firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can talk any of this through with you and follow the advice given in the links above. Look after yourselves and each other.
