The Quilter Internationals kick off this Saturday and will be streamed online via Amazon Prime. To help grassroots clubs generate revenue, Amazon have worked alongside the RFU to open up registration for clubs to become Amazon Associates.
This means the club will now receive £3 for every member of the community who signs up to Amazon on a free one-month trial through our club’s unique Associates link below.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE THIS UNIQUE LINK :-www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/primesignup/ref=acph_piv?tag=oakmeadiansam-21to sign up for your free one-month trial, otherwise the club won’t benefit from your subscription.
There is no expectation for members to stay on Prime past the trial period. The club will make £3 from each individual sign-up via the unique link, regardless of whether the member stays on past the trial period or not.
Every little helps in these challenging times, so please spread this message and our unique URL link far and wide – friends, colleagues and neighbours are all welcome to sign up!

Good evening to you all.
Below you will see the latest statement from the RFU. It puts all rugby, from championship level down, back to stage A on the RFU’s Roadmap. This means all rugby activity at Oakmeadians RFC is cancelled until further notice. We will keep you informed of any changes.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who have supported Oaks, the game of rugby, the players, and most of all each other over the last few months, at times it has been difficult but I have been really delighted at how we have all pulled together and kept positive.
If any of you need anything over the next few weeks, please contact me and I am sure we will be able to help.
We will be back, bigger and stronger but until then take care of yourselves, take care of each other and stay safe.
Jane Hart, Chairman
#SAAO Wednesday 4th November 2020
Parliament has today voted in favour of the Government’s national lockdown proposals aimed at curbing the increase in Covid-19 cases in England, which take effect from tomorrow (Thursday 5 November) until Wednesday 2 December. In addition, the Government has announced the cessation of all community team sports during this period, which applies to Age Grade and Adult rugby activities below Championship and Premier 15s.
With effect from tomorrow, we return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. This means that no competitive or formal rugby activities can be undertaken until at least Wednesday 2 December. While group training sessions are banned, a maximum of two players can participate in socially distanced (two metres plus), individual training sessions outside without sharing equipment.
We will now review what the implications of this national lockdown plan mean for clubhouses, schools, colleges, universities, etc., and will provide more detailed information in the Covid-19 Community Game Update tomorrow.
In addition, we would like to advise that the RFU Competitions Team is working with the Competitions Organising Committees for Men and Women to finalise alternative competitions models in place of the cancelled 2020/21 league programme. These will be entirely optional for clubs and will have no impact on promotion/relegation. They will focus on local cluster leagues and offer a framework for clubs to Return to Play (in some format once we have government approval to do so). It is intended to circulate these proposals, inviting clubs to participate, on Friday 13 November
COVID-19 RETURN TO RUGBY POLICY AND GUIDANCE 2020 (Version 5)
These are truly unprecedented times and Oakmeadians RFC is committed to a return to rugby through all age groups and sections when it is safe for everyone to do so.
Government guidelines are changing from week to week, with the easing of lockdown, training is now a possibility as long as we take care and follow all the health and safety guidance. Please visit our COVID-19 page for further details including the RFU's roadmap to a Return to Rugby together with their guidelines.
For now the clubhouse is open and fully compliant with COVID-19 regulations. We are serving takeaway drinks and food and operating a one-way system. Masks must be worn in the clubhouse at all times.
Following the RFU's Roadmap which currently stands at level D, we have commenced socially distanced training and undertake regular risk assessments through all sections and operations in the club. For training times and days please see below.
