Changing Rooms refurbished.

In preparation for the return of Cricket and Football to Bream, club volunteers have been busy re-furbishing the Sports Club changing rooms.
The finishing touch, the Bream Amateurs logo has been painted on to the wall in the home dressing room by Harriett.

Volunteers also cleared stones from the playing surface.

And sieved tons of topsoil – by hand.

Sports Grounds – stone removal

Whilst maintaining social distancing, small numbers of volunteers have been taking daily exercise by removing stones from the surface of the sports grounds.

Grass seed sown in the autumn has grown during the warmer weather. Removal of stones from the surface using only rakes, buckets and wheelbarrows has now allowed much of the new ground to be mowed.

Bream FC donate £1,055 to Great Oaks Dean Forest Hospice

BreamFest donation helps Great Oaks Hospice.

BREAM FC presented a cheque for £1,055 to the Great Oaks Hospice –after holding a very successful BreamFest at Bream Sports Club in August. The donation was made possible by the proceeds from the BreamFest.

Previous BreamFests have seen £1,100 raised for a special school and another £1,400 for a playgroup.

A report in the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Review added: “… Bream currently play at Worrall Hill, but the club has recently imported 20,000 tons of soil and topsoil to construct a brand new pitch”.

“With seeding virtually the only job left to do, the club is hopeful that the first game on it will be at the start of the 2020-21 season at the end of next summer”.

“At the end of last season, the club achieved FA Standard Charter status, meaning that each of the sides goes out with fully-trained first aiders on hand”.

Sports Grounds now seeded.

The sports grounds have now been seeded. The seed was drilled into the ground in several directions and the ground has been roped off to prevent new grass seedlings being trampled.
We therefore ask members, guests and visitors to keep off the grounds until further notice.
