* Club Update *
We hope you are all well and are endeavouring to stay safe in these strange times.
In normal times we would now be closed for our summer break and be carrying out maintenance. This year our volunteers are also making plans to ensure your safety and well-being when we reopen, hopefully in September. Please look out on social media and your email inboxes for further updates. Thank you once again for your patience. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon. 🎿
It has been three months since we temporarily closed our slope and we would like to thank you for your patience. While we have been closed some of our volunteers have been busy preparing for our reopening. As you know, in normal circumstances, we close at the end of June for our summer break and maintenance programme. This year we will also be looking at how to ensure your safety when we reopen. In the meantime if you know any younger members who are interested in freestyle or just broadening their skills and developing ski fitness they can email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about a new Snowsportengland award scheme. Stay safe and see you soon.
Seeing as the club is still closed due to the virus let’s get involved at home. Futures Project have some off snow activities you can do to help take your freestyle to the next level.
If you sign up in their website you can even get closer to your step 1 futures snow award. We would love to see you getting involved so email email@example.com for a copy of the activities and send us back your videos of your completed tasks or anything you’re struggling with!
Rem...ember to warm up and stretch before having a go, and to keep practicing them even after you’ve mastered them!
We can’t wait to see your attempts!
75th Anniversary of VE Day
Friday, 8th May 2020
Kidsgove Ski Club would like to pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation, from British, Commonwealth and Allied Forces to evacuees and those who served on the home front....
As we all face some of the most challenging times since the end of the World War II, now more than ever it is important to unite in recognition of service to the nation, just as communities did 75 years ago.
At 11am on Friday we would encourage our ski club members and volunteers to take part in a national moment of Remembrance and pause for a 2-minute silence to honor the service and sacrifice of the World War II generation and reflect on the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on so many lives across the world.
There is no right or wrong way to take part in the silence. Some may wish to stand at their windows, step outside their homes while remaining distanced from others, watch the broadcast on television, or simply sit in a quiet moment of reflection.
Whilst VE Day marked the beginning of the end of the Second World War, many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still involved in bitter fighting in the Far East. We remember the contribution of all Allied Forces, including forces from across the Commonwealth, without who the liberation of Europe and Japan would not have been possible.
The Second World War had a profound impact on communities across the UK and the Commonwealth which continued long after the war came to an end. The challenges of leaving, longing for and returning home were experienced by many people at the time and are still faced by Service families today.
