Vol. 1, Issue 8 - People & Pitches
The summer rolls on, and our preparations for the new season continues.
Hello, and welcome to this week’s club newsletter.
We will try to keep this week’s email short and sweet. As you are all aware, our weekly Football Fun Days have started. Despite strong winds and the occasional shower, John, Mike, and Jack welcomed more than 25 children to the Bear Trap on Tuesday.
We will be back on site this week for another day of fun and games, drills and skills. If you would like to come along, please remember to pre-book if possible.
The lovely Paul and Vicky Beamont have donated the portaloo for another season! We pass them our great relief (!), and thanks for coming to our rescue again.
The club would like to buy a large gazebo as a shelter for the children for matches and fun days. Do you have a contact that could get us an excellent deal? Could you sponsor one?
Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
PRE-SEASON GROUND PREPARATION DAY
Pre-season readiness picnic afternoon Saturday 28th August 2021
WE NEED YOU!
The committee wants to invite all members and their families to the Bear Trap any time between 1-6 pm Saturday 28th August.
Do come along, bring a picnic and enjoy the beautiful environment that it has become. There’s just a little hitch – we need your help!
To maximise the habitat value of the non-playing areas, we have allowed the edges of the field to set seed, and now we need to strim them and load the green matter into a trailer. If you have a cordless or petrol strimmer, please will you bring it with you? We would be very grateful for an hour’s work over the course of the afternoon.
Other jobs would be loading the trailer, a job that only requires gardening gloves, and filling holes in the pitch over at Brickfield Lane with topsoil. A spade and fork would be useful tools to bring for that task.
Please do let us know if you’re aiming to come; and if you have a working strimmer that you can very kindly use.
WE’RE AFFILIATED AND ACCREDITED!
And finally, we are delighted to announce the Barham FC is once again affiliated with The FA & Kent FA. Add this to our England Accredited Club status, and you can see that BFC is working hard to create a fun and supportive environment for all to enjoy the beautiful game.
