I've just had this encouraging news from NRA:

Dear Club Member
 

Use of Mod ranges in England during Covid-19 restrictions
 
I am pleased to announce that NRA Club bookings on outdoor Defence Infrastructure (DIO) ranges in England can resume, subject to Government Covid-19 Tier restrictions.

Clubs Officials are responsible for ensuring that members comply with any local Covid-19 restrictions, and have a Covid-19 risk assessment for the activity.

Range bookings in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are subject to local guidelines set by each of the Devolved Administrations.

Please contact me directly if you require further clarification.
 
 

Nic Couldrey
Regional Ranges Manager

Always willing to throw myself on the sword 😉

It is good news as long as the region stays in the lowest tier of risk - Kingsbury is currently "Medium" but close to "High" zones.

The plot thickens ! I know Lydd had a problem with alleged asylum seekers coming ashore during live firing the other day but what's going on?

Maybe a few days for everyone to be on the same page - I hope.

Coo, it must be strange living in black and white.  Not buying into Boris's nightmare doesn't make me a 'communist'  - silly boy, your tin-foil hat must be too tight.

Unfortunately Boris has been a massive disappointment so far , and no doubt will be booted out at the next election.  

The God Emperor Trump on the other hand 🇺🇸😎

We don't need Trump to sell us any crap food, we already do o.k. with it as it is. Have you walked up any high street in the last 20+ years?

The NRA have sent another email re DIO ranges - the key issue is local Covid restrictions override (as one would expect) and a maximum of 30 persons - how that is interpreted when there's three or four clubs on a day I think will be problematic.
