The league has recently learned of the sad passing of Peter Hargreaves.
Peter was involved with the league for a long time as a player for St Marks in the 60’s, progressing to treasurer and committee member, many years after he stopped playing.
Donations have been preferred to flowers so the league have sent a donation of £50 to the Pendleside Hospice where he was cared for.
I’m afraid it’s not good, no badminton if in high or very high tier unless part of a family bubble:
Great news about the re-opening of Blackburn & Darwen Leisure facilities and B.A.E.’s return to competitive play, scheduled for 12th September.
- contact their venue about a return to play and let P. Wright know asap
- appoint a Covid Officer for their club
The member of the committee in charge of ensuring the league adheres to the BAE Risk Assessment will be in touch shortly.
