Here Tudors Supporters Club tells its story

'Community Kickabout' returns to Hemel Hempstead

Tudors Supporters Club recommenced 'Community Kickabout' sessions on Monday, March 29, at Vauxhall Road, when restrictions on outdoor team sports were eased.

The over 30's football sessions were organised to encourage Hemel fans and local residents to get active.

A spokesman for Tudors Supporters Club said: "So far we've been fully booked each week, enjoying some great sessions with everyone keen to get active again.

"We're planning to increase the initiative to two sessions in order to address increased demand for places, and we're thankful for the continued support of Hemel Hempstead Town FC and Dacorum Borough Council."

> Why not get involved in the Hemel Gazette's Happy Returns feature? We’d be delighted to hear details of how businesses and the community are emerging from the restrictions of the pandemic.

It might be news of a business relaunching, your youth sports team resuming its matches, how your school is coping with the ongoing challenges, how your club or society is ditching Zoom and is looking to meet face-to-face again, a family reunion or celebration which can finally go ahead, or the many other examples of events and activities we all took for granted slowly returning.

This is a great chance to tell your story over the coming weeks and months ahead. Submit 100-300 words to this newspaper on how the pandemic has had an impact, how you’ve kept going and most importantly news of your ‘Happy Return’ when it’s deemed safe.

We’d also love to receive photos of those joyful reunions/reopenings. Please send all details to [email protected]

Here’s a handy reminder of the remaining roadmap steps.

> From May 17, ‘rule of six’ abolished for outdoor gatherings and replaced with a limit of 30 people. Two households can mix indoors - with the rule of six applied in hospitality settings like pubs. Cinemas, hotels, performances and sporting events can reopen. Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, receptions, funerals and wakes.

> From June 21, all legal limits on social contact is intended to be removed, with the final closed sectors of the economy reopened.
