Ambulance and Rescue Guernsey - Your safety

Riding is a high risk sport.  The Club strongly advises that any member joining the club should subscribe to the St John Ambulance and Rescue Service annual ambulance service.  The reason for this is to avoid unnecessary delay and confusion in the event that a member requires an ambulance and uncertainty arises as to whether the casualty is able to pay for such a call out.  Go to Useful links for connection to the subscription form.
