As you may know England Hockey (EH) have now confirmed arrangements for 'getting back on the pitch' with effect from March 29th 2021.
Unfortunately all league hockey is now declared null and void (including for our M1 & L1) so the rest of the season will comprise training, intra-club games and some friendlies against local sides. I'm sure your section chairs will be in touch to provide details soon. You can read full details on the EH website https://www.englandhockey.co.uk/media/news/hockeys-first-steps-back-for-summer-of-fun
Despite rapidly falling Covid infections it is crucial that we continue to remain Covid-Secure. Hollybush has been given a full Covid-clean in preparation for your return. In general the measures remain as they did before the current lockdown but at the moment we await further clarification about car sharing. Current advice is NOT TO DO SO.
Also no spectators are allowed at Hollybush except in certain special circumstances
Have fun and enjoy your 3rd return to hockey for what's left of the season.
