Multi-sport camps this summer

Adult tennis coaching – starts 8th July 2017 

Adult coaching starts this weekend at Cherry Burton Tennis Club. There are 3 sessions planned before the holiday break:

Saturday 8th July   10.30-11.30am
Saturday 15th July 10.30-11.30am
Saturday 22nd July 10.30-11.30am

All sessions are £5.50 per person. Sessions will be run by our coach, Sam Marshall, and they are open to all adults, members and non-members. No need to book or commit to all three sessions, just turn up and pay as you go.

It would be helpful for planning purposes if you could let Sam know if you will be coming to any of the sessions. You can contact Sam on 07455 298671. Sam can then also let you know if any session is cancelled due to rain.

We would be very interested in any feedback you may have for us on adult coaching as we make plans for the autumn.

We hope you enjoy the coaching!

A flyer for the sessions is available here.

Ashley Godber – RIP

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Ashley Godber, a long-time member of the Cricket Club and for a short while a member of the SFMC. He was a well-liked family man and respected member of the Cricket Club and will be sorely missed. A few months before he died he set up a just-giving account intending to run the Hull 10k on 18th June to raise money for the Club. If you wish, you can donate to his just-giving page by clicking; https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ashley-godber

Owl box erected – 11/06/2017

A Barn Owl Nest Box has been erected on the perimeter of the sportsfield, this continues the policy of the sports field committee to encourage wildlife and fauna to the sportsfield.

The Barn Owl box has been sponsored by York Bird of Prey Centre (yorkbirdofprey.co.uk)

In addition to the Barn Owl box the Cherry Burton Scouts have built a Tawny nest box and erected it on the perimeter of the sportsfield , it is planned to erect a second Tawny nest box in the next few weeks.

Wild flowers are also encouraged around the perimeter with bluebells, primroses, cowslips and snowdrops adding colour in the spring. Summer flowering wild flower seeds were sown in the autumn, we await to see the results.

It is planned to continue to improve the ecology of the sportsfield and we are looking to erect small bird nest boxes over the next 12 months

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) 24/1/17


The Sportsfield Management Committee are pleased to confirm the installation of an AED at the Cherry Burton Sportsfield.

The AED was kindly donated by N.U.R.S.E. charity who are based in Beverley and raise funds by organising quiz nights , fun runs , sponsored walks, to name a few of the activities they get up to. Please support them whenever you see them fund raising.
All the sports clubs and also Baden Powell have given a donation to N.U.R.S.E. as appreciation for their gift of the AED.

The AED is situated on the west wall of the pavilion.

The AED is used to treat patients who experience a cardiac arrest. It can only be applied to patients who are unconscious and not breathing normally. The AED will analyse the heart rhythm and advise the operator if a shockable rhythm is detected. If a shockable rhythm is detected, the AED will charge to the appropriate energy level and advise the operator when to press the button to deliver a shock. If the AED does not detect a shockable rhythm then the AED will advise “no shock advised” and will not allow a shock to be delivered

If you are faced with the situation where someone has collapsed the first action is to ring 999. The operator will take details and advise you whether you need to get the AED; they will give you a code number to gain access to the AED cabinet.
No training is required to use this AED as it is semi automatic. However, for those who wish to learn more about the AED we will organise a training session early in 2017.
