Press Release 25 July 2020

LRC Building 640x480pxV2 

Covid-19 has changed the landscape for every business, organisation and charity and as a consequence we have taken the decision the Lord Roberts Centre will remain closed for the foreseeable future. In doing so we take into account the running costs of reopening, the additional cost of making a large, complex building Covid Secure each time it is used and the duty of care we have to our staff. It is also right each employee has been sent a personal communication to this effect in advance of this press release.

As we enter the last few days before reopening we just wanted to  share with you a selection Covid-19 Security Posters that may help you in your final preparations. These can be downloaded and displayed in your Club in strategic positions and to reinforce key messages. They have been produced in conjunction with Public Health England and NHS. Good luck for the rest of the week and we hope you have a successful and safe reopening. Please let us know how things go via social media or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you very much for your refund applications which we are processing as quickly as we can. We are currently working on this year’s Scottish Meeting and would like to thank all of you who have requested entry fees be carried over to next year’s event (26 June – 2 July 2021) and in a number of cases have expressed a wish for entry fees to be converted into a donation to NSRA Charity. This is greatly appreciated and we will continue to keep you posted and as always thank you for your support.
