Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday, I am sure it will come as no surprise to you that all facilities at Lymm Rugby Club are now closed. This includes, the Club House, Half-way House, AGP and all grass pitches. It is with a heavy heart that I forward this news as I was truly hoping that the return to rugby process that we were discussing in December would lead to competitive rugby under the new “Cluster” structure in January. With the increased transmission of Covid-19 this clearly cannot be the case. I have included an extract from the latest RFU communication below for your information;
National Lockdown announcement – Monday 4 January
Following Government’s national lockdown announcement to counter the steep rise in Covid-19 infections, all community rugby activity in England is suspended until further notice.
In line with current Government policy, all adult and age grade rugby training and fixtures must stop. This means we return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap for all players.
While this is not the way we hoped to start 2021, we all need to stick together and play our part by making sure we adhere to Government guidance over the next few weeks. This will help to protect our communities and to enable the vaccine to be as effective as possible, so we can all begin to return to a more normal way of life, including rugby, in the coming months.
We would like to thank you all once again for your commitment and resilience in the face of adversity. We appreciate the support you have provided for your rugby communities and thank you for your understanding during the toughest of times, for the sport and society as a whole.
I would like to echo these final 2 paragraphs and urge you to follow all Government guidance to help in the fight against Covid-19. We will continue to update you as the guidance changes through our website and other social media channels.
Keep Safe and well!!
John Cartwright – Chairman
