CLUB NEWS: Wednesfield’s weekend of racing cancelled
Wednesfield’s weekend of racing on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th September, which was due to feature the Dash Trophies Under 12’s, Women’s and Junior events as well as the Christine Ellis & Joan Aris Memorial matches, has had to be cancelled as a result of the high rise of COVID-19 outbreaks across the Black Country & Birmingham areas. Wednesfield CSC chairman Steve Mullinder posted the following statement on Facebook earlier today:
“After a lengthy phone conversation late Friday with Wolverhampton City Council and Public Health England and then followed by an email we were advised that our weekend meetings on the 19th & 20th September be suspended. This is due to the high rise of COVID-19 outbreaks across the Black Country & Birmingham. The Wednesfield committee have consulted on this and made the decision to CANCEL both days racing. Our aim is to keep everyone safe and follow ALL Guidance that is given to us.
“Keep Safe Everyone and we will hope to see our sport get back to normal before too long”
