If you have any news for the monthly bulletin please send to Jayne Bridgett about 4 days before end of the month
One of our members has discovered that Coronavirus testing is available at Uttoxeter Racecourse for anyone who wants a test whether symptomatic or not. Tests can be booked online or if anyone has trouble getting online it is possible to just call round and book an appointment with them in person. They were there last Sunday (26th) so it appears that tests are not limited to weekdays. (However, they wouldn't be available on race days!)
