WIRRAL 100’S ‘ANGLESEY GRAND’ MEETING CANCELLED

Today (1st September) the Wirral Hundred’s committee, after consulting with the Anglesey Circuit and after taking into account the continuing uncertainty and anomalies over the Welsh Government’s strict Covid-19 lockdown restrictions banning sporting events involving more than 30 people, agreed regrettably, in the absence of any tangible easing of the restrictions, to cancel the Club’s ‘Anglesey Grand’ race meeting scheduled for 10th & 11th October.
