**NEWS**

 
Corona Virus – Bulletin 2
 
PCUK on Facebook and on their website have made the following announcement in respect of the Corona virus.
“Following The Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, (17/03/2020)requesting that we minimise social contact and non-essential travel, we advise that ALL Pony Club activities cease with immediate effect.”
 
What does this mean, in these times of uncertainty? We are currently given no indication of time frames; so we are obviously following guidelines and all competitions and training, both mounted and unmounted will be cancelled for the time being; currently until the end of the Easter holidays.
Our treasurer will make refunds to you for all the cancelled training for which you have paid. Regarding Camp; we are still hoping this will go ahead so your deposits and booking will remain as is currently the case.
As far as time frames are concerned we will keep closely in touch with changing circumstances and react as appropriate, always keeping in line with government and PCUK advice.
We will however keep planning for the future this summer so that we are ready for activities when restrictions ease. We will keep everyone in touch via the website and Fb as well as emails (but please remember that there are at time inconsistencies in the Pony Club’s email system).
 
As always, in these cases, it is a time for ingenuity and innovation and I am keen that we should be able to provide some training and activity (can it even involve a rosette or two?) through our current technology.
Do please get in touch with me if you have any ideas, it looks like I’ll be in!
Please continue to stay safe and well during this difficult time and thank you all for your co-operation.
Barbara Coulson
District Commissioner
