To all DVRFC club members, clients, supporters and visitors:
Following the latest Government Advice this evening regarding the Coronavirus, we have considered our current position regarding the opening/closing of the Valley clubhouse & facilities.
At this time, in line with the latest advice re. schools & community facilities, we will remain open to fulfil our obligations to hirers and users of the facility.
Also, in line with hygiene advice, we have increased our anti-bacterial cleaning schedules, provided additional hand sanitisers in the building and are encouraging all visitors to use them.
Regarding Rugby at the club, the RFU has announced this evening that all rugby activity in England, at both professional and community level, including club training, league and cup matches is suspended from 17 March until 14 April subject to continued review.
Therefore, ALL scheduled DVRFC Youth Academy & Senior training & matches are cancelled during this time. Please spread the word and SHARE this post with fellow club members, players & supporters.
As you can all imagine, this is a very tough time for the club & facility, happening so soon after the opening of the new facility. However, we are confident that, with ongoing support from the community and others, we will find a way through these difficult times.
As the situation develops, rest assured that we will keep you updated through Social Media & Website channels.
