What you should expect
on a Covid Secure Rally - Guidance from Headquarters.
We very much
welcome you back to rallying with us, however, there are some changes
we have had to implement on a rally that you need to be aware of.
The Coronavirus pandemic remains a significant threat to public health,
therefore we need to implement certain restrictions on the rally, and
for the time being a rally is purely for the siting of leisure vehicles.
All Club Centre rallies have to have completed a full Covid Risk Assessment
which is to be sent to Head Office 7 days prior to the rally starting,
and this is to ensure that all aspects of the rally are operated in
line with Covid secure protocols, health and safety and government guidelines.
All guidance has been provided by the Club to ensure that we are compliant
with current legislation, and more importantly, to keep all of us safe.
1 Unwell on a rally. -
If you are showing symptoms of Covid-19, please do not attempt to travel
to a rally.
It is very important that if you feel unwell during the rally that you
follow the Government and NHS guidance:
a) Contact NHS 111
b) Call the Rally Officer/Marshal on the phone number provided and inform
them - they will make a record of the incident.
c) If a case is suspected on a rally, and if you are able to, please
leave the rally and travel home to self-isolate and be tested. Prior
to leaving the rally, access for
members of the affected outfit to common service points will only be
allowed at a pre-agreed time with disinfection of the service point
afterwards. All refuse waste from the outfit should be double-bagged
and taken home - not disposed of on site.
2 Track and Trace.
The Rally Officer will retain all details of those attending the rally
for 21 days after the event, when it will be safely destroyed.

4 Travelling to a rally

hubs, such as motorway services, to reduce the risk of contamination.

There are no visitors allowed to visit the rally.
7 Pitching up
Spacing between units will be strictly monitored on the rally.
Please follow the instructions from the Rally Officer to allow for as
little interaction as possible and adhere to social distancing measures.
We may have to limit the numbers on the rally to ensure that the rally

8 Flag / Social Activities
We are not able to hold a gathering at Flag, nor can we offer any social
We cannot erect any awnings/gazebos/marquees/event tents for common
shelter or social activities at this time.
We may be able to operate sports and games, but these will be strictly
in accordance with Government regulations.
No food or drink can be shared amongst ralliers.
9 Water taps and service points
We need to ensure that there will be adequate social distancing around
any water taps and service points. Please maintain a distance if there
are ralliers already in the area and avoid queuing where possible.
10 Waste disposal and refuse
If the landowner has not provided secure disposal of refuse we ask that
you take your rubbish home with you.
Any grey waste must be disposed of in the allocated agreed points.
There will be additional signage on a rally to remind members to wash
their hands for at least 20 seconds after using service points, waste
disposal (if provided) or electric hook-ups.
We may provide extra hand sanitiser at service points, but we expect
ralliers to have their own supply in their unit.
Remember that we all have a responsibility to be mindful and considerate
to fellow Club members and ralliers, and in particular, we should follow
any procedures, practices and Government legislations in place.
Parents remain responsible for the conduct of their children whilst
on the rally. During these difficult times we ask that parents ensure
that their children continue to social distance and follow the rules
in place to minimise transmission of the virus.
Our Rally Officers are not expected to police the rally
and ensure that members are complying with the guidance. Any allegations
of misbehaviour on a rally will be investigated by the Centre Committee,
and may lead to a disciplinary process being undertaken in accordance
with Centre Rules.
Your Centre is run by volunteer members and we are working as hard as
we can to ensure that rallying can continue. <br>We appreciate
your support with this.
