Covid 19 Update – Face Coverings

With Government guidelines constantly changing, we are continuously having to adapt to fit with recommendations put in place. On that note, we have recently implemented that ALL candidates attending training at our centre MUST wear Face Coverings whilst in communal areas.

These can be removed once in the classroom setting, and within our warehouse as long as social distancing can be maintained. This is typically 2 metres, or 1 metre where the room can be ventilated adequately.


The evidence suggests that face coverings can help protect each other and reduce the spread of the disease from someone who is suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms. 

In the event that you have any of the common symptoms, you will not be able to attend training. In addition, we are also implementing a temperature screening, and having all candidates attending sign a declaration to confirm they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms.

You can do a self assessment to see if you have any Covid-19 symptoms using the below link.

Bradley Stokes plays for Bradley Stoke Town FC

Bradley Stokes is HL Training Services newest team member, having joined HL in August 2018. Since then, Bradley has helped not only with our existing customers, but with finding new customers too. He’s even become a hit away from HL Training – having joined Bradley Stoke Town FC – that’s right, the same team name as his actual name.

Having moved to Bristol for University, Bradleys job search led him to HL Training and living locally to Bradley Stoke, he was intrigued to see if they had a football team. Thats where Bradley Stoke Town FC came into the equation, who play in the 14th tier.

The story was released over the weekend, and has since seen a lot of media attention over social media including Neil Maggs of Bristol Post, Ladbrokes, FootyAccumulators & BBC Sport.

IT HAS ALSO GONE INTERNATIONAL – See the DUTCH Version on the story below;
