Providing facilities for anyone interested in playing rugby, regardless of age and gender.
Our club has been operating for over 100 years, apart from during the wartime periods when like many organisations it closed until hostilities ceased.
It is run by a committee of volunteers and other helpers. Originally we ran up to 4 adult teams, but recent decades have seen the introduction of junior rugby and this season, for the first time, we will field teams at all ages from under 6 to under 19, as well as 3 adult teams, a veterans team and, for the first time, a ladies team.
How would this funding have an impact on your community?
In many ways, we are the victims of our success and our club facilities can only just cope with the number of teams. One thing we desperately need is an area where the parents of our youngest players can wash them. If our bid is successful we will install washing facilities in a changing area.
