This page will be updated and the guidance documents re-issued (with any changes highlighted) just as soon as we have the details through from the various bits of Officialdom, but initially it is belived there will be none.

 

Please Remember - None of the above is the Executive 'making up rules' all of it is simply the distributed requirments from the various bits of government condensed and with the correct terminology for what we do, that is the Associations task and is what is required of us. We don't have any authority to relax government regulation, we could theoretically tighten them but none of the above does.
