Markfield Community and Sports Centre
MORE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
As I write this article it is amazing to note that first time vaccinations have now exceed 20 million doses. With the R Rate going down and new cases and deaths declining on a regular basis there hope that this dreadful pandemic is on the retreat. But we MUST still keep our guard up and stay safe. You will all know by now the Government’s road map to recovery giving the various steps towards “normality”.
As far as the Community Centre is concerned, we are looking towards a gradual and COVID safe return as follows:
29th March we should be able to accommodate organised outdoor sports for both adults and children.
12th April Community Centres will be allowed to re-open though we do not yet know exactly what the rules on social mixing and distancing and activities will be required.
17th May organised indoor adult sports
21st June no legal limits on social contact
However, the above dates are the earliest that may be allowed and are subject to review if circumstances change.
So, hopefully we should be able to manage a gradual and COVID safe return.
MARKFIELD GOOD NEIGHBOURS SCHEME

Every year prior to the pandemic we have held a pancake flipping competition which was always great fun despite all the pancake debris flying across the hall. This year it had to be different with members making their own pancakes at home and flipping them with various degrees of success. Unfortunately, we could not declare a winner this year but members managed to enjoy their pancakes with whole variety of toppings.
The club meets virtually every Wednesday afternoon and we are planning other events including Saint David’s Day with leek soup and perhaps something special for Easter. It is a good way of keeping in touch with people and giving them something to look forward to each week with an update call from Carol Kemp, recipes, jokes, quizzes and useful information. You can join in if you wish by simply contacting us at the Centre. Hopefully we will be able to resume the sessions at the Centre after 12th April provided that we can meet Government guidelines and rules.
