The Bream Flower Show organised by Bream Gardening Society took place on the Sports Club grounds. The team from the club had worked hard to ensure that visitors to this long-standing show enjoyed facilities that it deserved. The committee and members were delighted to host the show and thank all those that attended.
The British and Irish Lions vs New Zealand was shown live on TV at Bream Sports Club. More than 40 Lions supporters turned up at 8 a.m. to watch the game. Although they would be made welcome, there were no Kiwis present!
Thanks to Lou for making numerous cups of tea and coffee and to Glyn for making the bacon rolls. Thanks also to all that turned up to watch the game. The score ended up as 15-15 and the series was drawn.
Our area has a long-standing connection with New Zealand rugby. The Bathurst Cup was donated in 1931 by Lord Bledisloe of Lydney. Lord Bledisloe (then Charles Bathurst) also donated the cup that is still contested in the Forest – the Forest of Dean Combination Cup.

At Easter 2017, 8,000 tons of inert infill material have so far been imported onto the Sports Grounds. The material has been sourced from the “Northern Quarter” at Cinderford. A further 12,000 tons of material is needed to complete the project.
The project will provide a level football pitch and also level the cricket outfield.
The organising team have successfully managed to obtained permission to import approximately 9000+ tons of inert subsoil from a site in Cinderford. Work has started on tipping and levelling the imported material.
The team are also looking to get approval for importing material from 2 other sites in the Forest of Dean.
