๐Ÿ’‰ JAB-U-LOUS! ๐Ÿ’‰

We are delighted to see that Leighton Buzzard PCN undertook a successful first day of vaccinating our local community against COVID-19.

The transformation of our clubhouse into the vital vaccination centre is down to a huge amount of hard work and support by local businesses, local healthcare services, combined local authorities and of course many from within our fabulous club, especially our very own Dave and Ruth.

Thank you for all your kind words and support from across not only our own members and Leighton Buzzard community but across the wider rugby family - we are proud to be playing our part in the battle against COVID.

Please do follow the PCN page on Facebook for regular updates about the Vaccination Centre.

๐Ÿ’™ LEIGHTON BUZZARD SAYS THANK YOU ๐Ÿ’™

We would like to give local companies the opportunity to join us and come together to say thank you and support our NHS and Keyworker community via sponsoring our large banner that will stretch the length of the rugby club car park during it's use as the local Covid-19 Vaccination Centre.

It is anticipated that this banner will be viewed by the majority of Leighton Buzzard residents over the course of the vaccination centres use.

If you would like to be involved with this exciting and unique thank you, please email commercial@buzzardrugby.co.uk by 2pm Wednesday.

๐ŸŒน BUZZARDS FEATURED IN RFU TOUCHLINE ๐ŸŒน

Leighton Buzzard RFC, having supported the NHS through special T-shirts earlier in the pandemic, is now becoming part of the countryโ€™s network of vaccination centres fighting Covid-19.

For the past few weeks, they have been working closely with their local Primary Care Network and the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group to transform the club into a community vaccination hub.

With the NHS currently offering the vaccine to those most at risk from coronavirus, including the over 80s, those working in care homes and health and social care workers at high risk, the clubhouse and facilities at Wrightโ€™s Meadow will be serving the community and patients of local GP surgeries 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

"We were contacted just prior to Christmas and itโ€™s been extremely busy since then," said club chairman Lee Beaumont. "The clubhouse layout and car park were thought to make an ideal community Vaccination Centre.

"We didnโ€™t hesitate to offer our help and are immensely proud to do so. The sooner we can control the virus, the sooner we can have a return to normality."

Police, fire brigade, clinicians, and various volunteer groups from across the town have been on site coordinating the setting up of the vaccination hub with the PCN. Like most rugby clubs Leighton Buzzard has a number of front line workers among their members and Lee and others have volunteered to help wherever they can.

๐Ÿ  U12s BOOSTED BY REDROW SPONSORSHIP ๐Ÿ 

A local housebuilder is supporting children in sport by sponsoring Leighton Buzzard Rugby Clubโ€™s mini and junior teams.

Redrow Homes , which is currently building at Leestone Park, on Heath Road, has donated towards the U12 teamโ€™s new kit.

Suzanne Irons, Sales Director for Redrow South Midlands, said: โ€œLeighton Buzzard Rugby Club is an invaluable part of community life, and we are proud to support its mini and junior teams as part of our commitment to creating thriving communities.

โ€œItโ€™s great to see the enthusiasm of all of the team members, we will be following them throughout the season once it resumes and wish them luck in their future games!โ€

Pippa Bruckland, Commercial Manager at Buzzards, said: โ€œWeโ€™re thrilled to have Redrow South Midlands sponsoring our mini and junior teams. Our club is all about developing grassroots rugby while encouraging children from a young age to get active and give the sport a try โ€“ itโ€™s wonderful to see everyone come together and improve every time we train.

โ€œWe have a great bunch of players that we are really proud of, and they all deserve to feel a sense of pride when they step onto the pitch. We canโ€™t wait to debut our new kit once the season resumes.โ€

The sponsorship forms part of Redrowโ€™s ongoing commitment to promote health and wellbeing in the community.

Leestone Park offers the ideal balance of rural living with great connections to surrounding towns. The centre of Leighton Buzzard is just a mile and a half away from the development, and the handy train station means you can travel to Milton Keynes in less than fifteen minutes. In due course, there are also plans for a local centre to be built on the development, as well as an orchard and plenty of open spaces โ€“ making the location perfect for families.

For more information about Leestone Park, please call 01525 351 716 or see www.redrow.co.uk/developments/leestone-park-leighton

We have just received the following from the CCG team who are coordinating volunteers.

"To let you know that we have been absolutely inundated with non- clinical volunteers interested in volunteering in LB. It is great news but it is to the extent that we are struggling to keep on top of the acknowledgements and logging.

We will do our best over the next few days but if anything can be done to stem the flow for a while, I would greatly appreciate it as it is impacting on administrative resource that is supporting all areas of the vaccination programme.

What a wonderful community spirit there is in LB!"

May we ask if you could put a hold on volunteering so that we don't overload the system and impact on the team who are organising volunteers for the whole of the county.
Thank you all for your amazing support!!!
Don't forget that you can volunteer to work in other locations.
Go Leighton!!!
