Posted as received from Mandy Wright, Nottinghamshire CCC:
As you will be aware, instructions in relation to public spaces, outdoor activities and exercise during the ongoing coronavirus crisis have recently been revised by the government.
The new government guidance is available for you to read here…
I am writing to draw your attention to the guidelines that have been put in place by the England & Wales Cricket Board, in response to the instructions from central government, regarding clubs and their facilities at this time.
The guidance in full is attached, and I would strongly recommend reading both the government and ECB documents, and considering the respective contents in detail, prior to permitting any access to your facilities.
It is important to note that clubs are not obliged to open their facilities at this time, and that you are advised by the ECB not to do so if meeting the safety requirements is deemed unachievable.
With the situation constantly evolving, the ECB have committed to keeping the guidance under review. I will continue to endeavour to share any significant developments.
Joe Fish and Andrew Wilson, Club Development Officers will be returning from furlough for an short time and will be available for support and guidance from Monday.
Nominations are invited, from club Secretary or League Representative, for the Stewart Hague young player award.
This is for Under 16 cricketers for their performances in the Gunn & Moore South Nottinghamshire Cricket League 2019.
Play cricket will have the statistics so a full summary why they should be considered. The winner will be presented with the trophy at the Presentation Evening on Friday 15th November 2019 at Cotgrave Welfare.
