NEW FUNDING SOURCE – SPORT ENGLAND

Sport England has launched an additional fund to help clubs returning to sport.
They have launched a new £16.5 million fund to give additional help to the sport and physical activity sector during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
 The Return to Play Fund will support groups, clubs and organisations who have been impacted by restrictions brought in to tackle the disease.
 
If you think that your club might be able to benefit from this new funding stream, get applying.

 
COVID UPDATE

From the 24th September, clubs are also required to display an official NHS QR code to support NHS Test and Trace. Leisure and Tourism – Clubs providing team sporting activities. You do need to have the code even if it is people accessing the club / shed / container to work on the gigs make use of equipment.

You can create your own Club NHS QR code using the link. PLEASE NOTE this is in addition to your club’s own track and trace, not instead of.

Some clubs have now decided that they are suspending rowing for various reasons. This is entirely the decision of the clubs and although it might not be something that an individual member wants, it has been done with the best of intentions and therefore please support your committee at a difficult time.

All clubs need to ensure that they have procedures in place should a member test positive for Covid who has been actively rowing / interacting with the club membership. In the event of this, what are the steps that would be taken and how are you going to ensure that the necessary members / community know?

With the introduction of the Three Tier COVID Alert Levels – check Sport England for more info.

Please remember and respond regarding guidance for all, including coxes.

The Covid advice / guidance can be found on the CPGA Website Covid page.
