Participant safety is paramount to Across the Divide and we are continuing to monitor the situation with regards to swine flu and its potential impact on our overseas events. At the time of writing the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is not advising against travel to any of the countries in which we operate however, should this advice change we will ensure that both charities and participants are kept informed, and will work with you to make suitable alternative arrangements.Please note that some airlines (most notably British Airways and Virgin Atlantic) will prevent passengers from boarding the plane if they are suspected of carrying the swine flu virus, and that medical screening facilities have been introduced at some international airports. Across the Divide strongly recommends that anyone suffering from flu-like symptoms prior to departure contacts the National Pandemic Flu Service (please refer to the website ) for advice.
Please refer to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for further information regarding swine flu overseas and do not hesitate to contact us on 01460 30456 should you have any further concerns.

Across the Divide has a busy weekend planned.
Tomorrow sees the start of the London to Paris bike ride with Visa – who are fundraising for NSPCC. They cycle over 300 miles in just 4 days but what an amazing trip if not an exhausting one. They will start in the centre of London, cycle through the rolling Kent countryside, across the channel, along quiet French roads and into the heart of Paris finishing at the Eiffel Tower. Why not join us on this event next year?
Then on Saturday sees the NSPCC once again with a cycle event in Buckinghamshire – the Big Bike Ride A stunning cycle event through picturesque countryside with the choice of taking part in a 25km, 50km or 75km route. Why not join them in Sussex next weekend?
Charity Treks and Events.
