Training to resume at vandals but the club house remains closed until authorisation from the local authority

Good News
Let’s start with some great news. The Rugby section is to commence training from the 27th June following comprehensive guidance from the RFU. It will be very different and controlled but club members will be able to enjoy the grounds and get some well needed interaction with fellow members and some fresh air.

Other sections of the club are gradually returning to training also. If you have not heard anything, please get in contact with your coaches and managers for updates of when and how training will be starting.

Each section is following advice from its governing body so please get in contact with them for the latest updates.

Clubhouse update
Please remember that the clubhouse remains closed until we are given the green light to open and we ask you to sensibly follow all the published recommended guidelines.

Whilst some businesses are getting back to the “new normal” we at Vandals are waiting for the authorisation from the Local Authority. You may have seen in local press and social media that a few pubs/clubs have tried to open unsuccessfully.

We are currently waiting for the latest Government update to confirm how and when we can open but are hoping and planning that this will be Saturday the 4th July.

Rest assured we have been working in the background preparing for all scenarios and ready to put in place a plan of action to welcome you all back. It goes without saying that there will be many changes to safeguard all the members and staff.

The club has been mothballed for several months and there are many jobs that need doing. We are hoping that some of you could lend a hand so please watch out for a cry for help soon.

There are also some events planned to welcome you all back as soon as we are up and running.

Section General meetings
- Rugby AGM 8th July 2020
- Netball AGM 9th July 2020

Contact your usual section contact for further information.

Finally, it has been an unprecedented time for all of us. May we take this opportunity to thank you for all for the support and advice that has been given to date as it really does show what makes Vandals special. Thanks for being part of our family and we hope to see you soon.

Gareth Owen – President
Peter Wellden – Club Chairman
