NEWCASTLE RUGBY LTD COVID 19 UPDATE General March 26, 2020 Newcastle Rugby Ltd, which includes Newcastle Thunder, Newcastle Falcons and its associated charity, Newcastle Rugby Foundation, is working with all staff to put together a plan aimed at ensuring long-term job retention and the ongoing stability of the business. This plan will incorporate government help via the furloughed worker scheme for some staff members, and salary reductions. This is to ensure that we are in a strong position to move forwards when rugby resumes. We thank our staff members for their understanding during this difficult period. In line with current Government Covid-19 guidance, all areas of Kingston Park Stadium will remain closed until further notice. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for further updates on this constantly-changing situation. We appreciate your patience and support at this difficult time. Stay safe.
