With many facilities around the country due to open this coming weekend, we are very aware that people will be asking what the situation is with our own clubhouse. The committee has reviewed the present Covid-19 guidelines and has now developed the following plans to open our club’s facilities in the weeks and months ahead.
With so many of our players keen to resume training, our focus so far has been aimed at starting training sessions, in line with the RFU Return to Rugby programme, for our senior and junior teams, and details of training sessions are available from the team coaches. Some of our junior teams have already taken part in training and our seniors have also been back training, so it’s great to see some action and the detailed plans we put into place working well and keeping everyone safe.
Our next focus is to open the bar for our club members, and whilst we understand everyone’s hopes of re-opening it is not a simple process and many new systems will need to be put in place to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and members and this will take time. Given that we do not anticipate opening before 27 July or possibly later.
At present all other events have been postponed for July and August.
The committee is now meeting every two weeks and is working hard to make sure we can put in place everything we need to open the clubhouse once again, we know that not opening on the 4 July will cause disappointment, but we must all be mindful that our priority must be to ensure everyone’s safety so we would ask you to bear with us.
