CLUB NEWS

Following the recent Government advice regarding the contingency measures to deal with the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, the club has reviewed its procedures and also taken into account the IAM advice which was published 17th March (reproduced below).

  1. With immediate effect the Committee have decided that we will suspend all NAB member meetings until further notice.
  2. Associate training, on a one-to-one only basis, may continue by agreement between the observer and the associate but this is entirely optional. You will see from the IAM statement that a membership extension will be granted, free of charge, to all associates who cannot complete their training owing to the current situation.
  3. The 2020 European Tour scheduled to commence late June will be kept under review.

Please remember that we can still communicate via the club Whatsapp.  

Take care and stay healthy!
