Latest on return 17 Sep

Apologies but it now looks very unlikely that Teign School will be available for our use this Friday 18th Sept.

Two weeks ago the school reservations team wrote to Community Clubs saying that, subject to having the correct documentation and processes in place, Community Clubs could resume their bookings week beginning 14th September.  As we had all the necessary documents and plans already in place, which I had previously sent them  (and then resent amended versions on the same day as I received the email), I assumed we should be ok to start on Friday 18th Sept.

The automatic response received from reservations yesterday says;

Community use Re start – We are currently processing all of the submitted Risk Assessments and we will communicate with you once yours is approved and a new start date can then be agreed. 

  • RA received which has now to be assessed by the ESW Risk manager. Please bear with us as we are experiencing a high volume of these currently and will get back to you with any amendments, if required or to agree your hire and arrange a start date.
  • Once RA approved and a start date is agreed we will need to take an initial upfront payment which will then confirm the hire agreement between us.
  • You will be notified by email of the start date and the COVID specific instructions for the site or space you will be using.
  • ONLY then will your use of the given site/facilities commence.
I would hope that the reservations team will get things moving to enable a start on Friday 25th Sept, but that cannot be guaranteed.
If we can return on the 25th then I suggest that all those who expressed an interest in playing on Friday 18th Sept will automatically get the same sessions on Friday 25th Sept. So I would be grateful if you could let me know if that is not suitable for you as I have others waiting to slot in if spaces are available.
Apologies once again for building your hopes up for a start tomorrow.
