Litter a Big Problem

Complaints from the Public !

Litter - Pick Up and Deposit Responsibly !

A general reminder making from NBBC reminding teams to take litter (bottles, tapes etc.) home with them, we’ve had an enquiry/complaint – specifically relating to Vale View. More now than ever, we shouldn’t be expecting anyone to pick up someone else’s rubbish.

It is great to see Football continue at at Sandon Park but I am getting increased complaints from residents at Cleaver Gardens about parking issues. The vast majority of people are parking sensibly but we do have a few who park on the pavements, across dropped kerbs, in residents parking area and on corners. 

It would be very useful to add a note about considerate parking on your newsletters as some of the residents are being significantly annoyed by a very few who park badly. I understand how difficult things are with COVID stopping things like car sharing.

Litter at our Venues - Comment from a Member of the Public.

I am a bit concerned on the amount of rubbish that is left on the side lines after football matches on a Sunday, it doesn't take 5 minutes, for teams to pick it up and dispose of it. Also when teams take down their nets they leave all the tape on the ground this also doesn't take long to pick up. Could this problem be addressed at club level. I don't travel around the pitches, what I said above is just an example from the Avenue Road pitches in Nuneaton....

National Lockdown - Covid-19  !

Updated News - Jan 6th 2021

Following the Government announcement earlier this week, placing England in a 3rd lockdown, all football at Grassroots level, including training, is now cancelled which means that no fixtures will take place in the NDSFL up to and including Monday February 15th.

The review of the current lockdown is due to take place on February 15th so we will keep you up to date nearer the time to let you know what will happen then.

BCFA are holding a Zoom meeting for member leagues next Wednesday 13th January which Glynn will be joining. I understand there are several items on the agenda one of which is the continuation of the 2020-2021 season. No decisions have been made yet by anyone so it's too early to predict what might happen, but the FA are in constant dialogue with the Department of Culture Media and Sport and it will be as result of those discussions as to what happens to the rest of the season. 

At this point in time the NDSFL do not have any intentions to bring the season to an end. There are no cup fixtures this season only league matches and some clubs are a third of their way through fixtures, some close to half way through. We are therefore confident that if the current National Lockdown works and coupled with the role out of the Vaccine, that restrictions are lifted and we drop back into Tier 3, we will be able to complete the season. However there are a number of factors at play here and we are constantly reviewing the situation nationally and locally. 

When we have any more information we will share it with you.
