CLUB OF THE WEEK Ynysgerwn CC coping with Lockdown


Thanks to Howard Bowden Secretary of Ynysgerwn CC for this case study

Ynysgerwn club shut down in March during the COVID-19 lockdown. Since that time Some of the committee got together (over Whatsapp) and Simon Williams & Steve Williams under the tutelage of Lawrence Williams the retiring groundsman, who have been managing the field co-ordinated many members who volunteered to come to the club in small numbers so they could observe social distancing while sprucing up around the club.

The members have been outstanding replacing facias on the side and back of the club, repainting walls, railings, digging up old flower beds and renewing them. We have even removed an old astroturf wicket alongside the square and made the ground good . There was and old overgrown area near the roller shed that has been transformed with tons of earth being moved.

Thanks to Neil Davies. Nicky Maggs and Craig Evans have taken it upon themselves to organise virtual quiz nights, bingo, raffles which a lot of the members buy into.

Recently the Nets project has restarted and work progresses.   We as a committee would like to publicly thank all who have taken their time to contribute in their own way. A few have been named but the number is many.
