Petition Allow amateur athletes within a lockdown area to continue to train and be coached outside of the area.
Deeside ice rink is currently being used as a field hospital resulting in our skaters having to travel to Widnes ice rink as it’s our nearest rink. Local lockdown rules now prevent them from training as they can’t travel out of the area. For the majority of sports, facilities are still available within the lockdown area but for Ice Skating this is not the case. Not allowing these skaters to train can have a detrimental impact on their physical and mental well being.
There is also a negative impact for the ice skating coaches as they can travel for work purposes but will have a loss of income due to their pupils not being able to travel for lessons.
Please let not having a facility to train be a reasonable excuse for them to travel for sports
