RDA UK Update 2 November

RDA UK Update 2 November

To RDA Group contacts & Chairs, RDA UK staff and volunteers

Following the UK Government announcement on Saturday, we have the following information to share with you:

RDA Groups in England

Unless any new information or exemptions are announced, all RDA groups in England will have to close from this Thursday 5 November. We expect this closure to remain in place for at least the next 4 weeks.

As before, staff and/or volunteers are still allowed to travel and be on site to take care of horses, as long as COVID safety measures and social distancing rules are followed.

We are looking into the financial assistance being offered by the government and will update you as soon as we have clarity on this.

This will be a major setback for many of you, particularly those who have found ways to restart activities. Please contact RDA National Office or your Regional team if you have immediate concerns about your group as a result of this new lockdown. We will be doing everything we can to support all our groups through this.

RDA Groups in Scotland

The new 5-tier system begins in Scotland today. Please check local restrictions and visitwww.myrda.org.uk/runningyourgroup/getting-started-after-lockdown/rules-for-scotland/ to find out how this affects RDA activity.

RDA Groups in Wales

There is no new guidance for Wales, which is already operating within lockdown restrictions. Current restrictions are due to be lifted on 9 November.

RDA Groups in Northern Ireland

There is no change to our guidance for groups in Northern Ireland.
