Chairmans Challenge

CHAIRMANS CHALLENGE 1

The Chairman`s Challenge is for all members & Season ticket holders to bring along a friend, neighbour, wife, girlfriend or someone from the pub (anyone really!) to both of the next 2 Home Games.

Your guest will pay only £5.00 for entry to Priory Park…….fantastic value to watch a National League 1 game, full of entertainment, excitement and great rugby.

CHAIRMAN`S CHALLENGE 2

The club are in desperate need of new mowing equipment to keep the pitches and surrounding grassed areas maintained, to enable all members from the 1st XV down to the tiny kids on a Sunday morning, to play rugby.

The RFU are offering a grant of up to £10,000 for such equipment (for which we have applied) but of course, we can`t assume we will be successful in our application, particularly not for the full amount. We have taken the decision to go ahead and purchase the required machinery as we are unable to continue with the our current machinery (our current tractor is older than Wilkey and is similarly beyond repair) and pray we are successful with the grant application. So, my Chairman`s Challenge to you, is to make a contribution to this project.

I will set the ball rolling and donate £50 to the cause and would ask you all to look at how you can assist with this one off project. We have upwards of 600 members, so I`m asking everyone to make some kind of contribution to assist in making this possible. It`s not rocket science to work out that if everyone contributed £10, we`d have £6,000. However, if 50% of the membership don`t contribute, it means we`ll fall short of our target, or other members having to dig deeper, which I`m sure you`ll agree, is totally unacceptable.

We will need the new mowing equipment by April as the growing season commences, therefore, we need donations over the next couple of weeks.

As mentioned, this equipment is for the benefit of the entire club and I personally guarantee that any money donated will be used purely for this project, and not, as some of our more cynical membership might imply, for spending on the 1st XV.

In the event we end up with a surplus (!!?) I suggest we allocate the money to another capital project for the benefit of all. (Ladies loos are in desperate need of a refurb, clubhouse needs a lick of paint – the list is endless).

You will all be informed as to where any surplus money is spent

Please, please consider how much you can help with here, as it`s your rugby club.

Details of how to donate will be published next week, both in this column and on the website.

Thanks in anticipation for your support.
