Covid-19 - getting back outdoors
All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.
Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.
