10 Sep 20: Training Guidance Following Government Update

As Rugby is an organised sport under RFU guidelines, we are pleased to report that there are no changes to where we currently stand. We remain at Stage D.

However, due to the government restrictions, some distancing rules will need to be observed. Please read the Clubhouse Updated Guidance within the clubs website ‘News’ section.

Youth Training:

We are delighted that we will be able to welcome back the Youth Section to The Mote on Sunday 20th September, as long as there are no further developments.

As part of the organised sports guidance, parents can attend as normal but we kindly ask that you follow the below rules.

  • Help adhere to the new clubhouse operations guidance.
  • You must space yourselves 2 metres apart and must not congregate in a group larger than six people.
  • Timings for the youth training will be need to be amended in accordance with the latest guidance / distancing regulations and will be communicated by your Age Grade Coach.
  • Please respect the timings, park and leave responsibly.

Senior Training:

Senior training can continue as it has been operating since we reached Stage D. Please observe the updated clubhouse guidance as this has changed.

Physio:

Indoor treatments will be starting again as of Tuesday 22nd September. There will be restrictions on when you can enter the room, so please make sure that you book an appointment if you would like to be seen. The Physio is a service to paying members only.

10 Sep 20: Changes To Clubhouse Guidelines

Following the recent government announcement, the club has reassessed the guidance and evaluated where that melds with the RFU guidance.

We are pleased to report that this will incur only minor changes to our current COVID operations. Please read the below and help all of us keep safe and compliant, so that we can continue bringing you the best possible service we can within these difficult restrictions.

Important Clubhouse Regulations as of Monday 14th September.

  •  Patrons must use the one way system and observe social distancing of 2 metres.
  •  Register your name in the guest book or with you designated coach / person in your group for contact tracing.
  •  Use sanitisers provided when entering the facility.
  •  No more than one person in the restroom at all times.
  •  Only people from the same household allowed at the bar at any one time, when ordering refreshments.
  •  Contactless payments only.
  •  Masks strongly encouraged.
  •  No more than 6 together at a minimum of 2 metres apart.
  •  All other patrons must space themselves away from any group that they are not included within, more than 2 metres.
  •  Maximum clubhouse occupancy of 20 customers.

There will also be COVID monitors to assist with numbers and ensuring that we are compliant. They are volunteers, helping ensure that we keep everyone safe and that we can continue to operate, so please respect and assist them.

On days that there are food available, you maybe asked to move along after you have eaten to allow for the table to be cleaned and another member(s) to eat. Please do not take this personally. Keep in mind that it could be you waiting whilst others are occupying a table unnecessarily.

There will be additional tables outside on the Pétanque court. The intention is to construct a structure over this to keep rain off for the winter days ahead which has been agreed with the Cricket Club.

Once again please help to support our staff and volunteers with these guidelines, so that we can continue in some form of normality as one club. Anyone that shows disregard for them, maybe asked to leave the premises. 

08 Sep 20: NatWest Rugby Force: Thanks To All

 

The club was chosen this year to receive the £500 grant as part of the Natwest Rugby GroundForce Day.

There were several jobs on the to-do list and with nearly thirty volunteers on hand, representing the committee, playing, youth and supporters, much was accomplished. The pitches were mowed by Veterans Captain Karim, areas were brush cut, weed killed and debris shifted by the likes of Jerry Sargant, President Paul Ehrhart, the Chairman and Pete Bulford. Trevor Marvin was on hand organizing the advertising boards whilst the players on hand led by Will Fox fitted, repaired and cleaned them.

Some of the trees around the grounds with dubious branches were trimmed and an area cleared & tidied to make way for some disabled parking bays adjacent to the top pitch. The railings were painted by a troop of individuals, with additional painting and touch up done by Richard Ewence. Getting involved here, there and everywhere was none other than Head Groundsman Bob Hayton, who once again organized a very productive day.

Refreshments were taken at the end of a great afternoons work by all. The club committee wholeheartedly thanks all those that turned up and contributed with more work that we could write about! One great day for one great club!

08 Sep 20: Club Blazers Awaiting Collection & Payment

The delivery of the blazers has been made, sanitised and held in storage. The supplier worked hard to ensure that the delivery was in time for the Veterans tour, which has unfortunately been delayed for obvious reasons. 

We understand that payment for the blazers could be difficult at this time and there are a lot of blazers still unpaid. Please could you help support the club by paying as soon as possible. Instalments are welcome. For delivery, please contact the Admin team so that the blazers can be taken out of storage and transported to the clubhouse.
