We would remind everyone that if you have NOT yet re-registered your child to play on GMS you must do so before returning to training. If you need help or have any queries please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
It has certainly been a tough year for everyone and as the end of 2020 approaches, we are all hoping that 2021 will be a much better year. What with the floods earlier in the year and the covid-19 closure we haven’t been able to operate as normal, but we have been overwhelmed by the support of our coaches, supporters, volunteers, parents, sponsors – Cotswold BMW Cheltenham and Bps Builders Merchant and of course all our players. So we would like to send to you all Seasons Greetings and wish you a Happy Christmas and New Year! Stay safe and we will see you in the new year.
The RFU has shared further guidance for community rugby in England for the return to recreational team sport from Wednesday 2 December. This includes all friendly fixtures and training for males and females, Age Grade and adult, for all contact and non-contact rugby.
Organized outdoor rugby activity with approved adaptations for both match play and training is permitted across all three tiers from Wednesday 2 December. However, it is extremely important that players, coaches, match officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow both the UK Government’s latest COVID-19 guidance and RFU guidance to ensure we can continue our phased return to play. We are now at Stage E on the Return to Rugby roadmap. Our senior team training sessions will recommence from Wednesday 2nd December whilst our junior teams will return to training on Sunday 6 December 2020.
Our clubhouse, however, will remain closed whilst we remain in Tier 2. We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are permitted to do so you can be assured that we will open our clubhouse to our members.
We’re encouraging all members, as well as your family and friends, to take advantage of a new offer created between the RFU and Amazon that lets you watch England Rugby for free in the Autumn Nations Cup, while also creating much-needed revenue for the club.
The Quilter Internationals kick off this Saturday and will be streamed online via Amazon Prime. To help grassroots clubs generate revenue, Amazon has worked alongside the RFU to open up registration for clubs to become Amazon Associates.
This means the club will now receive £3 for every member of the community who signs up to Amazon on a free one-month trial through our club’s unique Associates link below.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE THIS UNIQUE LINK www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/primesignup/ref=acph_piv?tag=tewkesburyrfc-21 to sign up for your free one-month trial, otherwise the club won’t benefit from your subscription.
There is no expectation for members to stay on Prime past the trial period. The club will make £3 from each individual sign-up via the unique link, regardless of whether the member stays on past the trial period or not.
Every little helps in these challenging times, so please spread this message and our unique URL link far and wide – friends, colleagues and neighbours are all welcome to sign up!
