We desperately need this money to improve facilities at the club (pitch drainage, ladies loos, etc.) ……forget about the potential new development, even if we get planning, were looking 2-3 years and in the meantime, the facilities need maintaining or upgrading.

Please don`t whinge about the state of the pitches, toilets etc. Unless you’re team have sold all the allocated tickets. WE NEED THE MONEY!

 CLUB MEMORIAL BOARD

As part of our efforts to bring back some of those elements of a rugby club that have drifted a little over the years, we are going to commission a memorial board to recognise those members of the club who have died on active service in conflicts around the world.

We have already identified 12  members who were killed in the second world war (and as part of the club history initiative led by Bob Jenner have found out a lot about their service records and decorations) but we invite you to let us know of anyone who has been killed on active service since then. We would now like to extend that Roll of Honour to include former members who died while on active service in subsequent conflicts.

Clearly this is something that we will address sensitively. If you know of a former member who died whilst in service could you let us know about them and if there are surviving relatives so that we can obtain their consent. The first point of contact should be Bob Jenner (bobjenner@gmail.com or via the Club) in his role as lead of the club history.

Thank you for your help.
