Pudsey Grangefield School partially closed – Bramley Buffaloes games cancelled, Rodley Nature Reserve changes

A lack of staff numbers had led to the partial closure of Pudsey Grangefield School tomorrow.

A notice on Leeds City Council’s website said:

“This a partial closure due to a lack of staff in response it the latest Coronavirus advice. We are open to Year 7, 11 and 13 students tomorrow and we are also open to all children whose parents work in the healthcare profession.”

Bramley Buffaloes rugby club have had all their fixtures postponed, initially until 3 April, and the clubhouse will remain closed until further notice.

Chairman Martyn Cheney said:

“While we are saddened by this decision, we must act in the best interest of our players, volunteers and the wider community by following the latest Government advice regarding social contact and mass gatherings.

“We also feel that the suspension of the community game is the right thing to do at this time if we are to protect the safety and wellbeing of our trusted supporters/associates.

“We will be keeping a close eye on the government updates and endeavour to update you regularly throughout these uncertain times.

“We hope to be back in action soon but until then, we urge you to stay safe and look out for your neighbours, and the vulnerable members of our community.”

Rodley Nature Reserve is remaining open for the time being, but the visitor centre will close from tomorrow. A statement on their website said:

“We are still open, but having to make changes.

“Reluctantly, but in all our interests, we have decided to close our visitor centre from 4pm Wednesday 18 March until further notice.

“We know how much you value the reserve and recognise how important our open spaces might be in the coming weeks, so WE ARE KEEPING OUR GATES, HIDES AND TOILETS OPEN AS NORMAL FOR THE TIME BEING.

“Sadly,  our Supervised Pond Dipping and Aireborough Rotary Easter Egg Hunt events are cancelled. Other planned events will be assessed on a individual basis and announcements made about them with as much notice as possible.”

School and group bookings will be cancelled at least until the end of the Easter holidays.
