Following on from our Prime Minister’s announcement last night, we have now further restrictions in place.
As of this morning (20th December 2020), Peterborough has been declared a Tier 4 area. As Whittlesey remains a Tier 2 area, members living in Peterborough are now no longer able to travel outside of their area to attend the club.
South Holland County Council residents have had this restriction already in place for some time now, and Peterborough County Council residents will now also have to abide by these new rules.
Residents of Fenland District Council may still use the club as normal – using the bookings system.
We will of course constantly review any changes to these rules and get you back shooting, as we all should be, as soon as is safe and lawful.
I am very pleased to announce that with certain restrictions, the club may now be used again! Could all members please read the instructions on the Members Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/WhittleseyRifleClubMembers/), or alternatively request these instructions via email (stating full name and membership number please) using the contact form.
As we are classed as an Indoor Sports facility, we cannot legally open before 25th July at the very earliest, and then only when certain stipulations are in place, which we are currently waiting to see what these exact stipulations are.
As an approved NSRA range, we also have to have NSRA approval before we can open our doors (irrespective of which discipline we shoot), so we are also waiting on an announcement from the NSRA. Otherwise we won’t have Home Office approval, and again be illegal.
Thank you to all our members for your extreme patience. We will get you back to shooting as soon as we can. It won’t be the same as before for quite a while, but we will get you back.
