As a club, we've decided to challenge our members to put their athletic abilities to good use and walk 1000 miles to raise £2020 for St. David's Hospice.
It's a local-registered charity, providing free end of life care to people with life-limiting illness. It faces a challenge every year to raise 75% of the £1.9 million annual running costs, but due to Covid-19, this year is even tougher than usual.
The Hospice has had to close all of it's charity shops, put all fundraising events on hold, and send it's volunteers home. This means it is faced with a £1 million loss.
As two of our own work for the Hospice, we've really appreciate your support in this fundraising effort.
It's a great way to help our local Hospice whilst abiding by the Government's social distancing guidelines. We'd really appreciate it if you would spare as much as you can - every penny counts!

We're missing training and our amazing members! To keep spirits up and support everyone on the front line, we're keeping the ball moving for all keyworkers!
1) Record a video of yourself receiving a pass from the left and then passing to the right
2) Say "I nominate [name your team mate or training partner] to keep the ball moving for all keyworkers
3) Post on social, tag Colwyn Netball, and use hashtag #keepsafe
Once we've had everyone's videos in, we'll edit together and publish the final video.
Keep safe everyone & stay at home.
Due to these exceptional circumstances we are having to postpone the AGM, which was due to take place in May.
As a result of this, the current committee members will keep their positions until we are able to reschedule. We hope this will be in August, but only time will tell.💛
Unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus situation, we've had to make the decision to cancel all future netball training sessions with immediate effect.
This decision has been made following the Government guidance issued last night and with the health and safety of our members in mind.
We're sorry for any inconvenience.
We'll be back up and running as soon as it's safe to do so.
We have made the decision to continue training for all ages groups as normal this week (unless any further government advice is received after the time of publishing).
Although the committee has assessed the risk to our members and the wider netball family as low, we will be implementing some additional hygiene measures to protect against COVID-19:
Going forward, we would like to continue training until we are informed it is no longer safe to do so, because at times like this, exercise and normality are important to our mental health and resilience. However, we will assess this on a week-by-week basis.
If you feel unwell or have been to any of the affected countries in the last 14 days, please do not attend training.
If you are unable to come or choose to stay at home as a precautionary measure, please let your captain or a member of the committee know so we have an idea of numbers.
Thank you for your continued support.
Colwyn Netball Club will be following advice from local government, Welsh Netball, Public Health Wales, and the World Health Organisation on the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
At present, there are no plans to cancel training sessions or league games, but this is a rapidly changing situation, so please keep checking our social media channels and website for the latest news.
It goes without saying that the health and safety of our players, coaches, and committee is our main priority, so if you feel unwell or have recently visited any other country (particularly the known affected areas), please refrain from attending training or games until further notice.
Following the devastating news about Delyth last week, we have decided to postpone training for another week.
Instead, we will be at Rydal Sports Hall on Wednesday from 6pm with a book of condolences. We will also be collecting donations towards the Club's flowers for the funeral, with the surplus going to the charity of the family's choice.
Everyone is welcome to attend - past and present club members, parents, committee members, others from the wider netball community.
This will be a safe space for us all to come together and remember what an amazing person, player, coach, and chairperson Delyth was.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
It is with deep regret that we have to inform you all that Delyth sadly passed away last night (24th September).
As most of you will know, Delyth was chairperson and coach of Colwyn Netball for many years. She was loved by everyone involved with the club and an inspiration to many. Her presence will be greatly missed in the North Wales netball community.
We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating news, and our thoughts are with Delyth's family and friends at this tragic time.
JUNIOR internal league
Anyone that didn't collect their trophies/winner medals on either of the presentation nights can collect them the first night of training (21st August).
We are submitting a fifth team into the North West Wales Netball League this year and we want your help to name it!
