COVID-19 Update: Greyhound racing suspended
In responding to tonight’s PM’s announcement we have to suspend all racing tomorrow as this is the responsible thing to do however there remains a need to clarify the government position in terms of ‘gatherings’ and ‘work’. I have contacted our contacts in Defra and DCMS and await their urgent clarification on these points. The GBGB has planned for this eventuality and we are ready to meet it head on. I firmly believe that the UK racing greyhound community are of the same stoic mind. Let’s remain calm and we will carry on.
