All rehearsals in the usual Memorial Hall at West Buckland School, by kind permission of the Head. Prior to June 21st, and possibly after that depending on National Restrictions, we are obliged to follow strict Covid-19 conditions:
We must only enter the Hall from the outer doors and not through any part of the School. Please park in the main carpark, turning left shortly after entering the main drive. Those with large or heavy instruments may park at the front of the school, if there is room available.
We will sit in “bubble” groups of a maximum of 6, with 2m or more between groups.
Please use the sanitiser available as you enter and leave.
Philip Stapleton has requested that where possible, players take a lateral flow test before a rehearsal.
Please follow the instructions from the appointed representatives of the School, most likely Dom Carter and Mike Burstow.
