A go-to guide for week two of the season

Tonight (Friday) we hold our second Junior Practice Night. The schedule is the same as last week: 6pm to 6.45pm – Under 9s and Under 11s and 6.45pm to 7.30pm Under 13s and Under 15s.

Can we please remind parents to sign the children in and out after the respective sessions and please remember that…

  • To order from the bar you need to be a member
  • “Sitting down when drinking”
  • “The Rule of Six” and
  • General social distancing protocols

Saturday (April 24) the third XI entertain Middleton while on Sunday our first and second teams take on Bacup.

This week the first team are home while the seconds travel to Lanehead Lane. In all matches WP 1pm.

Can we remind everyone that no spectators are allowed at matches, HOWEVER, people accessing hospitality are able to watch the match. The only exception to this relates to parents/carers who can attend in a safeguarding/caring capacity.

For this weekend’s matches, as well as the bar being open, we will be opening the kitchen with a variety of pasties, burgers and hot dogs available, as well as a choice of delicious cakes.

Unfortunately, seating capacity restrictions once again mean that we can only accept Greenmount Cricket Club and visiting club members. Seating capacity can be increased by people bringing their own chairs. If you do bring your chair just be mindful of the Rule of Six and general social distancing protocols when setting them up.

We have been working very closely with Greater Manchester Police and the licensing team at Bury Council and they are keen that we continually stress the importance of the protocols we have implemented to make the Log Cabin as safe as possible.

There are plenty of notices around the ground reminding you of them but the four key ones are:

  • To order from the bar you need to be a member
  • “Sitting down when drinking”
  • “The Rule of Six” and
  • General social distancing protocols.
