Bognor Rugby Club's strength is that it is a 'Community Club’ filled with players and supporters from the immediate Pevensey Ward Area within Bognor Regis.

The years and use have began to take its toll on our facilities somewhat are we are looking to undergo community projects and raise funding from various sources, including matched funding, utilising our Volunteer hours bank.

We have in the past invested in hidden but costly essentials such as boilers and water treatment systems and essential pitch maintenance allowing the continued playing of our sport, we have redecorated in the past, but it could now do with another lick of paint. 

Our shower facilities and changing rooms are the places in most of need of redecoration and refurbishment. 

We are looking to introduce Women's and Girls Rugby to the club in line with local demand and RFU initiatives . This would mean a more private shower facility than the current out dated communal shower room (this would also be a welcome addition for our teenage and adolescent boys) and a women’s changing area with a link directly to the shower room. An adjacent room is available but would require some configuration.

Last but not least is our Club Kitchen, the equipment has began to fail and we struggle to meet demands of the club, thus losing much needed revenue. For us its a catch 22, where we are unable to afford to replace or refurbish the equipment but need to in order to increased revenue streams.

We seek financial help in any ways in which you can help ? Assistance with labour would be a great help too, as this can prove as costly sometimes as materials themselves. Help with big projects or small with large budgets or little. Any form of assistance would be most appreciated by not only the club but the local community that use us and our facility.

More than one in four children in central Bognor Regis is living in poverty, shocking new figures reveal.

The high level of deprivation among the under-16s is suffered by those who live in the Hotham ward. This stretches from Felpham Way to Shripney Road and Longford Road and along the beach from the Hotham Arts Centre to Longbrook.

The area contains 220 youngters in low income households. This is equal to a staggering 27.2per cent of the total number of children in the area.

The proportion is much worse than the 21.3 per cent child deprivation level nationally and well over double the 12.5 per cent around West Sussex.

The estimated net weekly household income in Hotham is 320, after housing costs, according to Office of National Statistics figures. Pevensey ward was close behind for deprivation. Exactly 24 per cent, or slightly less than one in four u-16s, live in low income households.
