Chairman’s Update 13th October 2020

Dear All,

Following the recent announcement by the Government I thought it worth giving everyone an update on the impact on the Rugby Club.

Cheshire East is at Tier two (high) in respect of the guidelines and the Rugby Club remains at stage D on the RFU roadmap back to rugby.

The Club AGM/FGM will take place as planned on the evening of the 14th October and meets the requirements of the Tier two guidelines. Please either book to attend at the Club or join the meeting on zoom. The details have been circulated.

Off the field The Club will continue to operate an outdoor bar with beer garden. The barbecue will serve food and beverage on a takeaway basis only. We regret that there will be no indoor bar or other service for the foreseeable future.

We have our own outdoor bar arriving on Thursday and it will be fitted out and functioning for the weekend following. Huge thanks to Jeremy Bostock for the donation that has made this possible. The bar will be named ‘The Sin Bin’. We also have cover which has been donated by Louis Smith. Andy Appleyard is working with Louis to create a permanent outdoor facility including furniture and heating. For clarity an outdoor service will be available this weekend.

The Priory Park Horror will take place subject to any changes in the guidelines. It meets the requirements of the Tier two guidelines. If you want to come along please book here. It should be scary fun!!

On the field we are pleased to report that we remain at stage D and therefore not subject to any changes. The Mini/Junior section will continue to meet on Sundays with some age groups training mid-week and the seniors will continue to train midweek. Walking and touch rugby will continue on Thursday evenings and on Saturdays for some. Andy Appleyard will continue to plan rugby on Saturdays. The outdoor bar will be open on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. There will be no organised league rugby until January 2021 at the earliest.

 

The message is that the Club remains open for business on and off the pitch and we would welcome all the support you can give as we continue to manage our way through the restrictions on our way of life due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
