The London & Southern Counties Regional Championships 2020 has been cancelled, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Please read a Statement from Kevin Williams (Regional Secretary) below:
Following ongoing discussion and debate amongst the Regional Committee ever since the Coronavirus outbreak first appeared we have desperately been trying to find a way of allowing the contest to go ahead as planned.
Even though the Stevenage Arts & Leisure Centre is currently still operating normally we have come to the decision that our duty of care in ensuring your health and safety can not be guaranteed, and so we have taken the devastating decision to cancel this year's event.
The Committee is desperately sad to have had to take this course of action but trust you understand our reasons for doing so.
Over the coming days, we will be firming up how we manage the grading tables and advancement of bands to the National Finals and will not make any further comment until they have been finalised.
I would like to thank my Committee and Chairman for their advice and enduring support through what has been an incredibly stressful time for us all.
Regional Secretary, London & Southern Counties Regional Championships
More information relating to a decision regarding the qualifiers from the London & Southern Counties Regional Championships will be released in due course.
