What to expect on a COVID secure rally
Unwell on a rally
If you are showing symptoms of Covid-19, please do not attempt to travel to a rally.
It is very important that if you feel unwell during the rally that you follow the Government and NHS guidance:
Contact NHS 111
Call the Rally Officer/Marshal on the phone number provided and inform them - they will make a record of the incident.
If a case is suspected on a rally, and if you are able to, please leave the rally and travel home to self-isolate and be tested. Prior to leaving the rally, access for members of the affected outfit to common service points will only be allowed at a pre-agreed time with disinfection of the service point afterwards. All refuse waste from the outfit should be double-bagged and taken home - not disposed of on site.
Track and Trace
A QR Code will be displayed on the Rally and the Rally Officer will retain all details of those attending the rally for 21 days after the event, when it will be safely destroyed.
Pre-arrival at a Rally
Remember that at the present time the rally is for siting of leisure vehicles only. Social gatherings and meetings of groups from different households will not be taking place, except those in line with the limited numbers allowed under current Government guidance.
Travelling to a rally
Where possible, when travelling to a rally, please avoid busy transport hubs, such as motorway services, to reduce the risk of contamination.
Paying for a rally
We are not able to accept cash payments for rallies. Please pay for your rally by SumUp which is our contactless payment system; ask the Rally Officer prior to attanding the rally for details.
Arriving at a rally
We will not be passing out any paperwork when you arrive on the rally and we are not able to provide any refreshments either.
Rally plaques will not be available at this time.
There are no visitors allowed to visit the rally.
Spacing between units will be strictly monitored on the rally.
Please follow the instructions from the Rally Officer to allow for as little interaction as possible and adhere to social distancing measures.
We may have to limit the numbers on the rally to ensure that the rally is not too busy.
Flag / Social Activities
We are not able to hold a gathering at Flag, nor can we offer any social type events/gatherings.
We cannot erect any awnings/gazebos/marquees/event tents for common shelter or social activities at this time.
We may be able to operate sports and games, but these will be strictly in accordance with Government regulations.
No food or drink can be shared amongst ralliers.
Water taps and service points
We need to ensure that there will be adequate social distancing around any water taps and service points. Please maintain a distance if there are ralliers already in the area and avoid queuing where possible.
Waste disposal and refuse
If the landowner has not provided secure disposal of refuse we ask that you take your rubbish home with you
Any grey waste must be disposed of in the allocated agreed points.
There will be additional signage on a rally to remind members to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds after using service points, waste disposal (if provided) or electric hook-ups.
We will provide extra hand sanitiser at service points, and we expect ralliers to have their own supply in their unit.
Remember that we all have a responsibility to be mindful and considerate to fellow Club members and ralliers, and in particular, we should follow any procedures, practices and Government legislations in place.
Parents remain responsible for the conduct of their children whilst on the rally. During these difficult times we ask that parents ensure that their children continue to social distance and follow the rules in place to minimise transmission of the virus.
Our Rally Officers are not expected to ‘police’ the rally and ensure that members are complying with the guidance. Any allegations of misbehaviour on a rally will be investigated by the Centre Committee, and may lead to a disciplinary process being undertaken in accordance with Centre Rules.
