Good news is that the club's application
to Sport England, for funding from their Return to Play scheme, was
successful. They have agreed to fully fund our application of £6,546, to
ensure that our facilities are Covid compliant, for when our activities
resume at the Gin Pit cycle speedway track.
Extract from the grant award letter from Sport England:
"This project will purchase a cabin, to provide changing facilities for
users, which are compliant with social distancing, along with tables, chairs
and lockers. Sanitising equipment and materials will be provided to ensure
that the premises are kept clean at all times. Face masks and thermometers
will be provided for personal safety together with additional equipment in
the form of Covid compliance signage and a card reader, to facilitate non
cash collection of income. This will all help the cycle speedway track to
become COVID compliant safe and help get cyclists back to the track."
