Dear Members, Sponsors and Supporters,
We are living through a period of uncertainty not experienced for a generation. You will have been monitoring the Government’s response to this pandemic and the measures implemented over recent days in the ‘delay’ phase. Organisations have adapted and changed plans in order to comply with these measures. As a Club we have been monitoring this closely and have held an emergency Committee meeting to manage our response to these measures and any associated implications:
England and Hampshire RFU have ceased all rugby activity until further notice
All clubs and activities associated with or held in the Clubhouse have ceased
Army v Navy game is cancelled, if you purchased tickets for this you can get a refund from where you purchased them
The committee have worked very hard to ensure that any financial exposure and impacts to the branch have been minimised and we remain a viable club and business. No one really know how this will play out going forward, but we will come out of it at some point. We aim to comply with all Government and RFU guidance going forward as we move through the various phases of this Pandemic and move back to normality.
We will keep you all informed of any significant changes going forward. In the meantime, please take care of yourself, families and friends. Pick up that phone and call more often, if you or anyone you are aware of in the Club that may be having a tough time in the next few weeks or months, then please get in touch with Graham (07711045799) or myself (07922905128) who can muster up some support from the club to help with transport, shopping or anything else that might be causing problems.
Chairman SSRFC on behalf of the Committee
