Don't scare the locals
Please remember when you are arriving and leaving warriors coaching if you are sharing space with people walking then slow down and be prepared to stop. Give the people walking lots of space and do not scare them. If they step out of your way say thank you. If they don't step out of your way then you must stop and wait politely. We have had a complaint from a resident by Beechwood Park, so be on your best behaviour and save going fast for when you are on the grass.
Any parents able to help on Thursday nights or who might be interested in doing a British Cycling level 1 coaching course please let us know on Thursday night
