Send in your pictures of Life in Lockdown

OLDHAM Council is currently working on a project called ‘Oldham’s Lockdown Museum’, a digital project to record how life has changed in the town during the pandemic.

The idea is that the Council can then connect with people who might be feeling lonely or isolated at home, but also create an archive for future generations to understand a little about what Oldham life was like during the pandemic of 2020.

Each week the Council will set a theme to encourage people to send in photos and they will then be published the following week in a gallery on the Council website.

This week’s theme is ‘Sport and Exercise’ and Oldham RLFC has been asked to help and to take part.

Ideally, the Council would like photos to be with them by this Monday morning, July 13, so we are asking fans to send in their pictures of ‘Life in Lockdown’, with a sport and exercise theme, to us at the club so that we can send them off to the Council en bloc in order to meet their Monday morning request.

So please get cracking and upload your pictures by 5pm this Sunday, July 12, to the club’s email address:

We will do the rest and thus play our part, as the borough’s professional rugby league club, in helping the Council to make a huge success of its ‘Lockdown Museum’ project.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
