As I write this in late September, when the government is tightening
rather than relaxing Covid controls, it may seem a strange time to think
we may be able to return to fencing.
However, the school term has started, St Peters has had some
experience in managing the risks, and they have indicated that they will
consider allowing the club to resume. At a committee meeting last
week - electronic of course - we were all agreed that we want to start if we have a sufficient number of members who are enthusiastic to do so under government and British Fencing guidelines.
I hope everyone will be willing to fill out a short survey, so we can
be sure we do. I have e-mailed all recent members from the
mailing list I have; but if you have not received an e-mail, please let
me know and I will send you a link. I am happy to send the survey
to potential visitors and new members too. Unfortunately, there
are restrictions on sharing kit which mean we cannot accept beginners or
visitors without their own equipment just yet.
NB. For security reasons, I wouldn't encourage anyone to click on a

Temporary Closure Continues
I am afraid the shutdown triggered by the coronavirus has affected us
for longer than I had hoped. Unfortunately we still cannot set a date
for fencing to resume at the club.
