CLUB SADLY ANNOUNCE CANCELLATION OF CHRISTMAS EVENTS !
It with great regret that Carlton Town have today been left with no choice but to cancel all Christmas functions at the ground following the governments decision to bring all of Nottinghamshire into Tier 3 , the highest of restrictions.
For the first time in 20 years, there will be no Christmas Luncheon and the lights switch on with Cliff “as if” Richard will also not be allowed to go ahead.
The club have had to cancel virtually every fund raising event in 2020 and will now focus their efforts on the Christmas draw which in effect is the only extra way they can raise money to pay their forthcoming ground rent and Water rates due at Christmas.
Although the club have secured grants during this horrendous year, the rules tied to these awards are strict on what the money should be spent on and although Supporters will shortly see a big improvement in the car park, the club will face fresh challenges going forward in terms of paying their bills with the latest draconian measures.
The supporters 100 club money is being spent on maintaining the standard of the pitch and further work will take place next week following damage to the pitch during last Saturday’s monsoon and further heavy rain fall this week.
The club can comfirm the first Academy game at Carlton Town this season will take place on Thursday 12th November when the Millers take on Belper Town at 1pm.
The club can comfirm excellent feedback following the Supporters decision to do a collection for the local feedbanks last Saturday and the club have been contacted by local people and supporters including former Mp Vernon Coaker who is donating and donations in general will be welcomed once again at the Chasetown game a week on Saturday.
Feedback re the new look stage and Dj vinyl equipment also received fantastic comments and the club’s looks forward to be allowed to stage events once again , hopefully in 2021.
Finally the club would like to thank Craig Jordan who won the 100 club first prize last Saturday of £100 and donated it back to the club, a top man indeed and particularly with the new restrictions coming into play, every pound is going to count in the coming weeks.
