Dear Club member,

It’s a very difficult and challenging time for us all, where only a few weeks ago we was all looking forward to a exciting spring of track and field, marathons, or just the companionship and the support of all your friends at the club.

Everything has changed for us all, you might be isolating at home, or one of our essential workers, not least you might be involved directly in the fight against this nasty virus.

Wherever or whoever you are this can have an impact on your mental health wellbeing, and there is support from how to look after yourself on a daily basis to where to go or contact if more is required.

While there is a lot of information out there, the Club has put together the following list of trusted sites, and we encourage you to take a look and use them.
