Brian and Team

I am writing this on the 1st of March, and it feels very similar to the 1st of February. I like many people are relieved to be through another month of lockdown. I’m sure I am not the only one. The announcement from the government brings us the hope of returning to normal in the not-so-distant future. Although, like many, I remain cautiously optimistic and don’t want to get ahead of myself. I keep emphasising in my mind “As early as…”

You may have heard me say this before, but I love spring! The week that the trees start to get leaves on them is my favourite week of the year. For me this marks the true end of winter and natures true “New Year”. The trees burst into life; the flowers start to bloom, and it brings me a lot of joy. This new life in the natural reminds me of renewed life and rebirth also illustrated through the resurrection of Jesus. I have a feeling this year I will be more appreciative of the week than any other previous years. This spring will not only be the end of winter but also the lifting of restrictions, which will be relief for many.

We are hoping for our clubs to be back up and running this spring. CYP is looking to add more people to our team. If you, or someone you know would be interested, please feel free to email me at
