This afternoon, the club were contacted by the Rugby Football League who had received a complaint from an individual(s) that our club have begun some ‘non contact outdoor training’ against regulations.
We would like to sincerely thank this individual(s) for their time and effort in making the report.
Having providing the RFL with a verbal update of all the mitigation we have put in place in line with Government guidelines, key legislation and the policies from our governing bodies, they requested all of our resources as they wish them to be shared Nationally as best practice. This will significantly raise the profile of our club.
So from the Covid-19 video we have created, to the deep cleanse of the clubhouse, the investment and installation of numerous hand sanitisers and signage through to our new hygiene policy. Via regular updates and reviews, we have implemented a strategy that goes above and beyond the guidelines as we stay alert to control the virus and thus save lives.
We will continue to support our families throughout and will welcome them back with open arms BUT only when they are ready. It was absolutely superb for some of our children to be back at Scholes Lane with their teammates this week despite the control measures we have implemented. Nobody can take that smile off the children’s face when it’s so important to their physical and mental health.
So once again, on behalf of all committee members, a huge thanks to our mystery person(s) but your allegations have proved to be unfounded and malicious but helped raise the profile of our wonderful club.
***Update 13th June - The Projects and Partnerships Manager at RFL, the Director of Partnership and Development at RFL and the chair of NWC primary age groups have all been in touch with the committee to state how impressed they are with the lengths the club have gone to with such informative and regular correspondence and innovation during these unprecedented times.
