Please download and read the Covid-19 Guidelines that we expect may be in force when attending future Shows while Government Guidelines are still in place due to Covid-19.
It is now June now and we have all had to ensure this very difficult lock down. I hope that all members are safe, well and using their time wisely.
I am in regular contact with BSPS Sawtry and hopefully will be able to give our members any relevant updates.
We have dates booked at Morris EC for August and September, and if Government Guidelines allow us to proceed and it is legal to do so, we will hopefully be able to run a Show or Shows.
We are currently organising a Virtual Show, details of which will be published very soon, which we hope our Members and Non Members will take part in.
In the meantime, stay safe and we will hopefully see you all soon.
BSPS SCOTLAND SPRING SHOW 2020 – CANCELLED
After discussions by our Board of Directors and due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we have no option but to cancel the BSPS Scotland Spring Show due to be held on the 4th April at Morris Equestrian Centre.
The health and safety of everyone that attends our Events is of utmost importance to the BSPS Scottish Branch, and it would be irresponsible of us to proceed with the Show.
We hope everyone understands the decision we have made and we hope you all stay safe.
BSPS Scottish Branch is very much aware of the growing concerns regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and are continually monitoring and taking advice on the situation. Our number one priority is to ensure the health and safety of all Competitors attending our Shows. At the moment we are intending to go ahead with our Spring Show on the 4th April at Morris Equestrian Centre, although we have made the decision not to open the online pre-entries this weekend as planned, and may revert to entries on the day at a reduced rate. Please regularly check our Facebook page and website for any updates.
