Portrait of our KCM Arena hosts

Today we would like to use this page to share with you the work that has been ongoing at the @KCM Arena Stubbin for Rawmarsh St Josephs JFC. St Josephs JFC is Social Eyes affiliated club and kindly loaned us their football field over the Covid period. Without their cooperation Social Eyes would not have been able to reopen their service during the later end of this pandemic as our headquarters @Harding Avenue are too small to allow us to socially distance.

A sunny day @Stubbin

We have shared with them the building of dugouts, the clearing of a better pathway to the carpark and all the while in the sun and the wind and the rain we have sung, danced, played sports, explored and scaled the surrounding countryside to raise our banner and all the time The Banned played on.

The latest news it that over the weekend the new steps have been put in by Shane & James so that their fans can get a better view of the big pitch….. with help from @RSJJFC chairman @fez031075fez… Great to see managers and parents working together to improve KCM for the new season.

Richard was painting the built ones with a bit of help from Tony & Dave and Ricky & Liam are cracking on with the dugouts.

Tony & Dave were putting the posts up on the big pitch and leveling them up for the upcoming season… to me to you!!!

Now some much needed electrical work in the club house thanks to Alex Yates and his apprentice.

*LAST MAN (person) STANDING* Rawmarsh St Josephs are running a club last man standing competition. Details below please take part to help the club raise much needed funds and you could also win big… #oneclub

Please everyone support them as they have supported Social Eyes. #oneclub

Meanwhile a hardy few visited Boston Castle in Rotherham.

A cancelled day [Friday] on the KCM Arena field @Stubbin. Week 6 of our Summer of Sport will have to wait for another sunny day.

Meanwhile a hardy few visited Boston Castle in Rotherham.

The Castle is a square, two storey building, standing on one of the highest points in Rotherham.

Boston Castle was as a hunting lodge by the Earl of Effingham in 1775. It acquired the name Boston Castle to commemorate the Boston Tea Party. Boston Castle is now a small visitor attraction with historical information and displays on the history of the Castle, an interactive touch screen, and children’s costumes and games.

There is also access on request to a Roof Top viewing platform for visitors to enjoy expansive views of Rotherham and Sheffield.

Boston Park was Rotherham’s first public park, and was opened on the 4 July 1876 to mark the centenary of the American Independence.

The park was originally laid out with extensive gardens, a cricket ground, a bowling and croquet lawn and an open area for gymnastics. Today the park still boasts an attractive garden area and a large open area for informal recreation. It is also well used by visitors for walking and splashing on a wet and windy day.

Social distancing, singing, dancing and hiking

While our meetings could be seen as regimented they are vital to protect all of us. Thursday is health, fitness & wellbeing activities and a whole lot of fun. The group took turns playing the drums, singing and dancing while two groups were off for a ramble around the surrounding area.

The guys and gals walk straight onto the field, staying socially distanced, and letting one person in to get hand sanitized and then getting shown where to sit and they’ve all done that just to keep themselves safe and protected.
