Covid-19

Understandably Coronavirus is an issue on everyone’s mind at the moment. The advice from England Athletics to clubs is “business as usual” but to follow both the Government and the England Health guidance. Accordingly, we would ask that no member attends club events if they have flu-like symptoms or having returned from overseas, especially from affected parts of the world, until isolating for the recommended period. In addition, we recommend those attending either a Stretch or Yoga class bring and use their own mat.  

Chichester Corporate & Schools Championships

Again, we were blessed with good conditions last Wednesday for the second event of the Corporate/Schools Challenge series. We must congratulate Phil, Mark, Jill, Helen and all the team who arranged the event and to the many of you who again assisted so brilliantly on the evening. Please can we ask for your support for the final time on Wednesday 25th March. The provisional results are already published on the club’s website.
