We are opening up again this weekend. At last I hear you say!! However, things will not be like they were. COVID has robbed us of normality and it might be sometime before we are back to it. Your Management Team has been working very hard, with the help of John and Ellen to carry out Risk Assessments and implement safe practices for opening. Whilst we have done our best to make the re-opening as safe as we can, we cannot completely eliminate risk. If you have COVID Symptoms or it is less than 7 days since you recovered, we ask you to stay away, until fully recovered. If you are in a high-risk category, we suggest that you do not come to the club at this stage. Whilst the club is doing all it can, it is also the responsibility of all who attend to look after their own […]

Everyone will have seen, I am sure, that the government has announced a relaxing to the Lockdown to allow the Hospitality Industry to open its doors once more in a way that looks to the safety of its customers. For some weeks now, we have been working on how we can open up in a way that looks to the safety of our Members without removing the enjoyment. We are awaiting advice from the RFU on what this means for training and ultimately playing of Rugby. Once we have this, we will update our own procedures and make everyone aware of this. Please do not jump the gun on this and take any advice into your own hands. We have a set of procedures in place currently, based on Government and RFU advice, and these should be followed until we announce any update to these. If you need copies of […]
With all the discussions about “Black Lives Matter” at present, we think it is very important to re-iterate the stance of the RFU on racism and also include our own commitment. Below is a communication from the RFU: As a sport, Rugby Union prides itself on being inclusive and open to all. Diversity is therefore hugely important to us and we recognise that there’s certainly more work to be done to ensure that our sport is representative of the society in which we live. There is simply no place for racism in our sport. The RFU takes a very dim view of this and will take all actions possible to remove any sign of it from our game. We urge our Member clubs to do likewise and would like you to encourage your members to think about their own commitment. What can we all do to support diversity and what […]
On Thursday, the RFU today announced a national roadmap to support a return to community rugby activity. This roadmap consists of six stages, Stage A relating to individual training with one other person, moving through to Stage F when there can be a return to competitive matches against other teams. We are currently at Stage B following the government’s announcement of 28 May. An infographic and more detailed guidance has been produced to clarify the six stages of the roadmap. This Roadmap is shown below: Timescales to allow progression between stages will be carefully managed and will be determined by medical and government advice. Regular updates will be issued by the RFU, along with detailed guidance, as each progression takes place. The club will follow this advice and implement guidelines and procedures to ensure that we comply with this. Previously, the Board has communicated that it was OK for small […]
The Committee have looked into various ways of increasing income during the period of Lockdown and have reviewed the companies who are offering donations through online purchasing. The idea is that instead of going directly to your favourite online store (eg Amazon), you do it through a Club Portal. By doing this, the club gets a donation from every purchase you make. In this way, depending on the use, the club could potentially raise £1,000-£5,000 per year. We could certainly do with these funds at present. So, how does this work? Sedley Park has an exclusive, online, portal. By accessing your favourite online shop through this portal and carrying out your purchase as normal, you will ensure that Sedgley Park receive a donation from the vendor (donation varies from Vendor to Vendor). Let’s take a favourite, Amazon, as an example. Simply go to the portal: Find Amazon and click on […]
