I hope everybody is well and has come through the last year ok.
It is looking certain that fencing training activities will be able to restart, initially with some restrictions, after 12th April. This email is aimed to establish how people may wish to engage with this restart to help with planning the return to fencing of our club, Sheffield Buccaneers and also weekend individual lessons. It is likely that there is likely to need to review a number of areas including, costs, provision of personal fencing kit during sessions etc.
Sheffield Buccaneers My current understanding is that Birkdale School will not be open to external bookings until September. We will however have the opportunity of restarting our sessions on Mondays based at Mount St Mary’s College, initially for a limited size group of under 18s and it is anticipated that we may be able to do this from Monday 19th April.
Individual Fencing Lessons at Weekends It appears that these will be able to restart for everybody from 12th April. I have enquired after the availability of our usual venue the Park Centre and have not as yet had a reply. However, if this is not available, I have the possibility of using Frecheville Community Centre. This would probably involve afternoons rather than mornings. This venue may also be available to us for some evening activity.
I would be very grateful if people could give some idea of what they would like by considering these kind of questions
1 – Would you wish to attend fencing on Mondays at Mount St Mary’s College?
2 – If you wish to attend on Mondays, would you wish to continue throughout the Summer?
3 – Would you wish to take up weekend individual fencing lessons?
4 – If you wish to receive individual lessons, would you prefer Saturdays or Sundays?
5 – If you wish to receive individual lessons, how frequently would you like this? 6 – Are there any other considerations you would like to raise?

All the very best
