****CITY AND WEST SESSIONS TOMORROW****

Morning All

Timings for tomorrow evenings joint City and West session at Druid Park have been altered slightly.  Looking at the forecast it is going to be cold tomorrow evening so we have cut the session times slightly so the Under 14’s are now in earlier.  Please ask the boys to dress for the conditions - we want the boys to enjoy themselves and not freeze to death! 

Times are now:

Under 13’s City and West – 6pm to 7pm

Under 14’s City and West – 7.15pm to 8.15pm

Please remind the boys to sign in on arrival. 

I will be around from about 6.50pm if anyone has forms to hand in or photos (still missing a few for the 14’s) and will have the 14’s registers.    Rob and Ash will have the 13’s registers.  Changing rooms will be available for the boys should they need them.    (I know that the Ponteland boys are off on tour tomorrow so don’t worry about sending through apols – I have them listed already!)

If car park is busy, don’t park on the verges along the road as the local residents then call people and traffic wardens arrive to slap tickets on cars – you have been warned!!   Metro car park is a 2 minute walk from Druid if you need an alternative.   For anyone who has not been to Druid before, postcode is NE13 8DF and its next to the Wheatsheaf.

See you tomorrow.

The DPP Parents Facebook page has now been cleaned in line with County Safeguarding procedures (right age groups on the right pages).  All Under 14's parents will need to re-join the parents DPP Facebook page. 

The page has been re-named to reflect the current season so is now "Northumberland DPP 2017/18" if you do a search, or click on this link: 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/NorthumberlandDPP/

To re-join the facebook page, you will need to answer the security questions – Lawrence and I won’t add you in unless you do!

thanks
