Practice Venue

Dear Member

It is with regret that we have to inform you from the 31 July 2021 Birdlip Quarry Practice Ground will close permanently, due to the A417 road re-routing at Nettleton Bottom.
We had hoped to salvage some of the Quarry, but unfortunately it is completely out of our hands, the owners of the Quarry have other plans for the remaining parcel of land and therefore have terminated our use of it.  
We have contacted every District Council, County Council, Highways England, as well as local landowners, The ACU and the Police to try to secure somewhere to relocate to, however we have been unsuccessful.  
We would ask that should you know somewhere/someone we could contact in relation to leasing or purchasing some land to relocate the Practice Ground to if you could please respond to this email asap so that we may act upon it.  Also, should you know of somewhere that the large containers/ JCB could be stored whilst we continue to hunt for appropriate land, we would be most grateful to know, again, please respond to this email.
The remaining value of your membership monies will be calculated and refunded to the date of 31 July 2021, we would please ask for your patience as there are a lot of members to refund and this may take a short while to sort out.
Zona 1 hopes to continue running and hopefully we will be able to run events in the near future.

Please do note the police have been informed that riding at the Quarry after 31 July 2021 will be deemed as trespassing and therefore illegal. 
We, the Committee at Zona 1 would like to thank all of you for your continuous support over the years in keeping this great Practice Ground going and helping when/if you could.
We wish you all well and good luck in your future riding, but we hope to be in touch with you soon once some new ground is secured.
Best regardsThe Committee: Rob Workman, Kathleen Workman, Steve Workman, Andy Colbourne, Adam and Izzy Coopey.
