Following the recent guidelines issued from RDA National and after careful consideration the Trustees of Woodchurch Driving Group RDA have made the decision to postpone the start of the season for the foreseeable future.
This was a difficult decision as we know how our driving sessions are so important to our participants, however the health and safety of all our drivers and volunteers is our top priority.
The Trustees will be reviewing the ongoing situation carefully and will update all participants, volunteers and carers in due course.
We realise that this is extremely disappointing for everyone involved with the group and we hope that everyone stays safe and well during these unprecedented times.

The RDA have put out this specific information
While our advice as a nationwide organisation remains in line with the Government’s position, individual groups, volunteers and participants must feel able to make decisions based on their own specific circumstances.
In order for your group to stay open:
Everyone must have the ability to wash (or sanitise) their hands in line with government/NHS guidelines. Ensure that your volunteers and participants don’t feel under any obligation to attend if they have concerns
*Respect the feelings of everyone at your group and take their concerns seriously.
There is an advice leaflet available on: www.myrda.org.uk/about-rda/latest-news/
We are also postponing the May 60’s night but hope to reschedule for the autumn and will let you know the date when we have one.
