I thought I would do a bit of a round up as to what has happened over the passed year those with a good enough memory will remember the last game played at the Strawberry Grounds was on the 7th March against Upper Eden.
Then we were hit with the Pandemic and lots of rules and regulations to follow depending what tier we were in. Thankfully the Rules and the weather allowed us to enjoy food and drinks outside until the weather and the rules changed.
We were given fixtures for the 2020 -
Arrangements were made to progress a limited Bonfire night, but this was rapidly given the no go.
Things seemed to be getting better until a full lock down was forced on the UK just after Christmas.
You will have noticed that the Six nations Forecast Draw whish we have held for years, had to be abandoned, with a lot of people not working, or on Furlough we were unsure who could sell the tickets or even those available to purchase them.
What next: Who knows, we may even see the return to using the grounds once again during the Summer, but I don’t think we will be given the go ahead for grass roots till at least the start of the 21 -

Covid update: The Tier 2 restrictions mean that it isn’t viable to open the clubhouse. The situation is however under constant review so all hope that the clubhouse might be open over the Xmas and New Year period for a few socially distanced beers accompanied by a ‘substantial meal’ hasn’t vanished. In the meantime, Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to all our members and friends who have supported us during a very difficult year.
