CORONAVIRUS - Friday Night Club & 2020 Easter Show
Dear Members, we are working closely with Riverside Ice & Leisure management regarding Coronavirus, specifically to the course of action that the Club should take regarding Friday Night Club and the 2020 Easter Show. Our priority is naturally the safety and wellbeing of all concerned. Management at Riverside Ice & Leisure, are working with both Chelmsford City Council and Essex County Council to keep fully appraised with Government guidelines.
Members of the CRISC Committee met with Riverside Management on Monday and Friday this week to discuss the topic in detail. In short, as it stands today, the show is going ahead. However, Riverside Management continues to monitor the situation daily, and, with things being so fast-moving, their position may well change at any time.If we are not able to run the show at Easter as planned, we will reschedule to a later date in the year. The Committee is already looking at alternative dates should the show be rescheduled. We will, of course, keep you updated should the current position change. In the meantime, I have attached a link to Chelmsford City Council's website, specifically, the page covering Coronavirus.https://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/coronavirus/ Also, please find below a summary from the Essex County Council website regarding Coronavirus.Update: On Thursday 12 March, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced:The UK has officially entered the 'delay' phase of the Government's strategy to combat Coronavirus. • Anyone showing systems of a persistent cough or high temperature is advised to self-isolate for seven days. • Schools are not closing at this stage.
