Dear BMBS Member
N.B.This communications is being sent to all BMBS members with an active email address and has been sent by Royal Mail to all others.
A return to the Club Lake, Crawler Hill, Buggy Track, and Road System
The UK government has indicated that there will be some ‘relaxation’ of the current restrictions and that from Wednesday 13th May it will be possible to leave home and drive somewhere to engage in a sporting/recreational activity. Please note that at the present time, this ‘relaxation’ applies only to England. The advice for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales remains ‘stay home’.
This change in government advice suggests the resumption of some Radio Model equipment activity in England subject to compliance with certain guidelines and social distancing. Points to note include:
1. We remain in the midst of a pandemic. The updated government advice must not be regarded as meaning a ‘return to normal’. The situation is dynamic and current government advice must be followed.
2. The effects of the COVID-19 virus are most serious in men over the age of 60, and to both sexes with other underlying health problems. As many of our members fall into this group, we would urge careful consideration before venturing out and risking any potential exposure to the virus, however small the risk may be.
3. At no point during the lockdown has the use of RC models been prohibited. It is mainly the government’s blanket restrictions on non-essential travel which has precluded our hobbies activity (which remains the case in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Therefore, regardless of any changes to the government’s advice, any such local restrictions must also be considered.
eg ERYCC.. That Beaches are "open" but some but Not all Toilet facilities are available.
4. With the relaxation on 13th the site is open provided;-
These additional rules are subject to change & we will issue further guidance as details become available.
The health and wellbeing of our members remains our first priority, so please stay safe.
