Clubhouse Extension Project Update
Having already secured planning permission and funding of £420,000 we are now appealing to members, friends and supporters to raise the remaining £80,000 to get us over the goal line so that we can start this much needed clubouse extension project.
Thanks to the enormous generousity of a few of our members we have made good progress on reaching the goal. Steve Bowller writes:
"We are now tantalisingly close to our target figure thanks to a big push from our members. There's just a short way to go before we close and your name could be in highlight on our supporters board if you choose to make a donation now. This has been the biggest amount ever raised by the club and we'd like to thank everyone who has contributed so far".

Our clubhouse extension project has just been given a major boost with a £50,000 grant award from the Mick George Community Fund.
Steve Bowller says “Fundraising is well advanced towards the overall required target. The Mick George monies will hopefully be the catalyst for our Members and Supporters to make the final push to get us over the line”. Details on how to make a contribution are included in Steve's original letter to members.
At the AGM this week 3 new members were voted onto the committee. Please welcome:
|Gary Barr||Deborah Barr||Shaun Grady|
Gary will take on the role of Secretary. Deborah is our Membership Secretaray and Shaun has been involved in the changing project.
Steve Bowller was also confirmed as our new President replacing Alan who remains on the committee.
We'd finally like to thank Adrian Carpenter, who has stepped down as Secretary after 7 years of service the club, Jimmy Dore who will step down from his Finance role, and Jonathan Woods for his contributions to commercial this year.
We are now looking for a Finance Director to replace Jimmy so please get in touch if you are interested. Or indeed if you can contribute to our club in any other way - we always need more volunteers.
You can see the full committee here.
If you haven't been in our revamped shop (now run by Tylers) this season why not pop in and check out what's on offer. In addition to rugby kit we have new club polos in stock and the latest Canterbury England and British Lions shirts.
The shop is open every Sunday morning from 10.00 am to 12.00pm and on Saturdays when the 1st XV are playing for 2 hours before kick-off.
We hope to launch a web-shop soon.
