Richmond Championship Dog Show 2021 - Covid-19 Restrictions
Posted: Thursday 29th, April 2021 Time: 12:48:18 pm
The Government has published a Roadmap out of Lockdown that aims to support a return, on or after 21 June, to the holding of large out-door events. We are conscious that the holding of such events may remain conditional upon having measures in place to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Officers and Committee are liaising closely with Loseley Estates and Guildford Borough Council to jointly define both the level of risk and agree an appropriate risk mitigation strategy to enable the holding of a show which is "Covid-compliant" and financially viable at Loseley Park on 10-12 September 2021.
There will be difficulties in sourcing some of the facilities, for example benching, and wet weather rings, normally provided at the Society's shows that are likely to have a significant impact on the format, layout and running of the show.
A further announcement will be made once the Government has confirmed the date (currently 21 June) for deployment of Step 4 of the Roadmap out of Lockdown and the extent to which measures intended to control the transmission of Covid-19 will continue to be required.
