Dear BHRFC friends and members!
Please see the below statement from Burgess Hill Rugby Club Committee – sorry to be the bearer of bad news however everyone’s safety is our main priority.
Due to the sharply rising numbers of Omicron Variant cases of CoronaVirus in Mid Sussex and in discussion with the RFU, Burgess Hill Rugby Club has made the unfortunate decision to suspend all rugby and club activity until the New Year. This week we have seen a number of players, members, junior parents and committee members test positive for Covid-19.
Therefore the 1st XV and 2nd XV fixtures on Saturday 18th have been postponed. Juniors training on Sunday 19th has been cancelled as has the Junior Christmas Party. Our social event “Elf Night” on Saturday 19th has also been cancelled.
The safety of our members is our top priority and The Committee cannot justify putting anyone at risk, especially so close to the Christmas Break. We will update you in due course as to when we plan to “Return To Rugby (Part 3)” and in the meantime we wish you a happy, healthy Christmas.
