Patron’s Message

Well 2020 has not quite turned out like we all thought!

So many people have been affected by this whole coronavirus pandemic and it has been a truly testing period.

Certainly, here at the Castle we are not immune from the challenges but one thing that has heartened me is the way that the Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust has managed to continue to work with our young children. Not in recent history has there been a time when our young people’s physical and mental health have been so affected and I am so pleased that the Trust has found innovative ways to keep these children engaged.

For all of us I hope this pandemic will pass and we can return to some sort of normality but for now I would urge us all to support the great work of the Trust and congratulate them on everything they are doing.
