Covid compliance and supporter behaviour (posted Fri 23rd Oct 2020)
Last Tuesday was an eventful evening. A very welcome first win - more of the same please lads.

We had visits to the ground by the police and the league covid officer and we have taken on board their feedback regarding the control steps we have taken. You will see stricter measures in place around the ground from this Saturday. there will be 10 covid compliance officers, in hi-viz vests, in strategic positions around the ground. they have full authority to deal with covid non-compliance in any way they see fit. We must be compliant, not complacent.

There was a very rare incident of spectator unruly behaviour on Tuesday night. 99.9% of people attending our matches display the proper behaviour, a tiny minority do not. we say this to that minority - we know who you are, do not visit our ground again, you will not be allowed in, you are not welcome.

Pendley Day Nursery (posted Thu 8th Oct 2020)
The Club is very pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Pendley Day Nursery (PDN) for PDN to run a nursery at the club.

PDN is a new organisation, intending to open its doors on Monday, 4th January 2021. The clubhouse and the overall environment will provide a wonderful facility for young children to learn, grow and develop.

This relationship will, in time, provide the club with much needed finance at a time when we strive to fund our new floodlights project and, generally, to balance the books.

This is a joint venture betweeen TAFC and PDN. If you would like to make an enquiry about nursery provision then please email the club on tringathleticfc@hotmail.com and we will pass it across to PDN.
A CASHLESS CLUB (posted Tue 6th Oct 2020)
We are working towards becoming a cashless club such that all our transactions are carried out via credit cards or bank transfers. This is in line with modern trends and has substantial benefits to us. Handling cash is time consuming, has the potential of transferring bacteria, is insecure and also difficult to control from an accounting perspective and so the planned move makes sense all around.

We do recognise however that some of our supporters may need time to get used to this idea and so we will phase this change in over a period.

From next Saturday, spectators will be able to pay by credit card at the gate, but, for a short period, we will also be accepting cash. Thank you.
