Tractor Maintenance Project

Tractor Maintenance Project

The aim of the project is to maintain our tractor and purchase pitch maintenance equipment for the rugby club to support the community.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

During the summer months our grounds man works very hard to ensure that the community and rugby club has facilities to play sport and hold local events such as the yearly bonfire. The pitch and maintenance of it are obviously integral to the continued use of the ground.   Our project is to repair and maintain our rugby club tractor and buy a new mower as both items have seen quite a lot of use over many years and are now in desperate need of maintenance and replacement.

We would really like to be able to complete this project and therefore value any contribution made, thank you for your support!
