Christmas Party- Soft play/ Roller City- Campus West- Sunday 20th Dec 6-8pm

Following on from last year’s successful Christmas party at Campus West Soft play we will again be holding our U6-U9 age group party there. In addition this year, we have hired Roller city for U10’s – U14s age group. This will also give parents the opportunity to have a Christmas drink and meet other parents within the club.

Please note a responsible adult needs to remain at Campus West with any child from U11 age group or below. Unfortunately this is only available to Welwyn Pegasus players. Cost is £3 per player please let me know if you would like your child to attend this.

CRY Screening/ Sponsored Fun Run

Welwyn Pegasus has once again joined forces with charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) to offer a heart screening programme for all players from U15’s upwards within the club.

The test is painless, non-invasive and takes just a few minutes to perform; a printout of the heart’s electrical activity is obtained for evaluation for the cardiologist, but it is hoped early diagnosis of any potential conditions will be detected. This will be the 3rd time the club has offered this screening following on from the tragic passing in 2008 of U14 Captain Matthew Pearson and subsequent passing of James Hursey.

Following a successful funding bid the club have already raised £2,000 towards the cost of February 2016 CRY screening and are looking to organise a sponsored Fun run Early 2016. for more information
