A Statement from SCB

Good afternoon all,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

Please find attached our latest Newsletter (Newsletter 4) – with the main story being the “USING OUTDOOR CRICKET FACILITIES DURING LOCKDOWN IN ENGLAND” we would strongly recommend before you open your facilities that a holding message be sent to members whilst your respective Committees decipher the guidelines and assess whether you are able to meet the responsibilities set out in the documents.

ECB is clear that outdoor facilities should only reopen if those responsible for them are ready to do so and they can do so safely, following public health guidance: no club should reopen their outdoor facilities if they feel unable to meet the requirements.

Other headlines in the Newsletter are –

Webinars coming up
Latest guidance from the Grounds Management Association – with downloads and on-line course – really worth a read.
Safeguarding and DBS – we are open for verification and initiation, in order that cricket is safe
The Grounds from the air Quiz – Part 2, this has proved very popular. Part 3 will come out next week.

Please share with your membership.

We have been running week long promotions on our Social Media this week we have had a focus on Women and Girls this will continue into next week so keep a look out for some great insight and some real success stories.

Congratulations to all of those clubs who have been successful in gaining grants, whether Local Authority and/or Sport England, hoping this takes some immediate pressure off your financial concerns. In the coming weeks we will be encouraging you to think beyond this season and start to consider the activities for the Winter and what will it look like next Spring, a little more mid/long term planning.

Finally if you do have any questions, require any support, (it has been quite a roller coaster ride for administrators of clubs) if there is anything you want to discuss we are here, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards

Steve Reese, Lead Officer, Shropshire Cricket Board.
