We would like to take this opportunity whilst we have numerous children Summer camps in operation to remind all adults members to be mindful, when using the shower facilities, if there are children in and around the changing room areas. This is to ensure the required safeguarding measures are in place protecting both the children and the Club. The Safeguarding Policy, which can be found pdf here (78 KB) , provides an overview of the changing room protocol.
Male members should generally use the first floor changing room shower facility rather than that on the ground floor. There may be the exceptional situation where this may not be appropriate and the sports coaches will direct you accordingly.
Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the Board members.
I had sent a Club News advising of a planned tea for the Club and our neighbours on May 8. Well, I read that enthusiasm for such events has waned accross the country, and the Club and its neighbours turn out to be no exception. Given the lack of response, we won't hold the planned tea party.
I hope everyone nevertheless is able to enjoy the coronation weekend, and if you happen to be knocking around a ball of any description at the Club, why not bring cake to share!
I am very pleased to let you know that, on 15 April, Peter Chappell is going to re-join us at Brondesbury as Head Groundsman. Yes, the wheel has turned full circle! Over the last couple of years, although occupied elsewhere, Peter has retained his nearly lifelong contact with Brondesbury, helping with various jobs, and now is looking forward to being full time here again. Please welcome him back.
Very nice news from our cricket section:
England Over 50s cricket team beat hosts South Africa at Newlands Cricket Ground on Monday, thereby winning the Over 50s World Cup. Brondesbury was well represented in the England squad by Robert Nelson (1st XI player and ex-captain) and James Williams (recently appointed 2nd XI captain), with Bob Baxter as acting team manager.
Robert and James moved on to represent England against Australia for the Over 50s Ashes, before returning to the UK this weekend after a 3.5 week tour.
Greetings everyone. The Club will be marking the coronation of King Charles III with afternoon tea on Monday May 8th, either on the bowling green or in the clubhouse. This will be a combined event with the local residents. More details to follow, but meanwhile if you would like to help with the organisation please email [email protected].
