Coronavirus hits Rutland events

The widespread Coronavirus pandemic has hit many Rutland events which were due to take place in the coming weeks.

The UK Government imposed restrictions aimed at restricting the spread of the virus, including an effective ban on mass gatherings.

Although not implicitly forbidden, Prime Minister Boris Johnson suggested that medical personnel, usually present at sports and cultural events in case of accidents, should instead be available to the NHS at this time of need.

Midlands Pointing announced on Tuesday 17th March that all the remaining point-to-point horse racing meetings due to take place in the Midlands were cancelled, including the four fixtures due to take place at Garthorpe Racecourse, just outside Wymondham.
