Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Statement

Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19  situation in the UK and the expectation of the government extending the lock-down we have taken the difficult decision to extend the closure of Petans for scheduled training.  We plan to resume training on Tuesday 26th May 2020, please see our Customer Statement.  Please note that we will continue to follow government advice and this date may change.
