Important Announcement - Postponement


Given the continued spread of Corona Virus the organisers have decided to postpone this event.

Whilst, after the recent COBRA meeting, the Government has not yet explicitly required events to be cancelled, we are mindful of emerging public concern, and have decided to avoid the risks of a public gathering involving such a range of ages.

The Havant vs Fareham game will still take place at 2:30pm

COVID 19

This is primarily an outdoor event, but we will be following closely the latest government advice. During the event we will ensure that sufficient hand washing supplies are available during the day.

We would respectfully ask all attendees to follow these guidelines (as advised by the NHS):

• If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have returned from an affected area identified by the Chief Medical Officer as high risk and you are feeling unwell with a cough, difficulty breathing or fever, stay at home and use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111.
• Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
• To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
• Anyone who has travelled from Cambodia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand or Vietnam in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough, fever or shortness of breath, should stay at home, even if symptoms are mild.
