Rugby action finally returns to Lockwood Park!
It has been a long wait but the First XV will be back in action against league newcomers Bournville on Saturday 4th September, 3pm KO. The match will be the first meeting between the two teams.
We will be holding a pre-match lunch prior to the game with a meeting time of 1pm for 1.30pm service. The two-course meal consists of Len’s famous Meat and potato pie with chips and mushy peas, followed by
Sticky toffee pudding and custard for dessert.
The cost of the meal is £15 for members or £20 for non-members.
Book your place before Wednesday 1st September 5pm, by calling the club office on 01484 469801.
The Match Partner for the day will be Ian Williams.
Whilst we are looking forward to the new season, there are a few things to bare in mind:
- Some people will still not be comfortable being in crowded places. Please ensure that you respect people’s personal space and give them the space they require. We will have sanitiser available around the building for those that wish to use it. Facemasks are not mandatory, but a personal choice. If you wish to wear a face mask, please do.
- As well publicised, the hospitality industry has been hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic and this has affected staffing and recruitment, the Rugby Club has not been immune to this. All of the bar staff have either been furloughed for the past 18 months or they are completely new staff. Whilst we aim to provide the same service levels that you have previously enjoyed, please be patient and understanding with our staff. As an effect of this, the pitchside kiosk will not be open for this first match whilst staff get up to speed with the unique beast that is matchdays. We hope you enjoy the game and thank you in advance for your understanding.
