DYMOCK FESTIVAL CANCELLED

Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to cancel the Dymock Festival this year. We felt that given the current situation, even if we were allowed to run the event, the risks involved and the precautions needed in order to operate would detract from the quality of the event and that by encouraging others into our community we would increase the Covid risks in our local community.
Any tickets purchased for the 2020 festival will be valid for the 2021 festival which will be held next May. Tickets can be purchased at this year’s pricing for next year on our crowdfunding site https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/dymock-cc-voucher-fund-1

DYMOCK HALF MARATHON CANCELLED
For similar reasons we have also decided to cancel the Half Marathon. To encourage people to visit our village at this time is not in the best interests of the community. We look forward to welcoming the runners to the 2021 Half Marathon in May next year.

The same applies to the new 10K run that we had planned to run on the same day.
We are, however, planning to do a “Virtual 10k Run” and details of this will be published on our website in the near future. Entries will be available through our crowdfunding website and money raised will go to local community projects.

PLEASE HELP US RECOVER FROM THE LOCKDOWN

Without any cricketing income or fundraising activities such as the half marathon and festival our income through the summer months has been negligible. Whilst the return of cricket has now been announced we will still have a vastly reduced income. So we are asking for support by receiving donations and offering many “rewards” on our crowdfunding website

https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/dymock-cc-voucher-fund-1

You can pay for membership, playing or social, join the popular 100 club which is a monthly draw with thee prizes each month.
You can buy tickets for next year’s festival at this year’s prices, get your car washed at the club, come for cream teas and enjoy the setting or buy some delicious cakes.
Your business can advertise on our pitch side
You will be able to register for the virtual 10k run details of which will be announced soon.

We are also hoping that we will be able to get to our target of £5000 to then be matched funded from Sport England, a special thanks to everyone that has got us to nearly half way to this target already, we only have a matter of weeks to get to the final target so spread the word.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see many of you at The Pound during what is left of the summer.
