Exciting Month Ahead: New Member’s Bar

This month moving into February we will see some exciting upgrades on the old Presidents suite/Trophy room and both of our Bars.

We aim to create an accessible and comfortable place for our members and people of the community to come, enjoy and aid a quality experience at Macclesfield RUFC on match days and throughout the week.

Our target finish date is fast approaching so we are requesting all hands on deck for any of our members who can support the project.

Things we need:

  • To lend – Jigsaw & Sanders (belt sanders, handheld)
  • Wood pallets & scaffolding boards

Jobs to do:

  • Few small electrical jobs
  • Wall prepping
  • Painters
  • Dressing the room in our Rugby memorabilia

Please contact if you are able to support.
