We are a amateur rugby union club based in North Nottinghamshire whose 1st XV finished second in North Midland 3 East league last season. We also have a strong 2nd XV and a thriving junior section, ranging from age 5 upwards, with opportunities for both boys and girls. Our aim for the coming season is to have 3 teams and a Vets team.
Our current clubhouse facilities were built in 1979, by members of the club at the time as a `'temporary" facility and whilst there has been some updates to the building since then, this remains our clubhouse to this date. Following a land swap with Anglian Water, we now own the majority of the ground and we have ambitious plans to develop the sports facilities in conjunction with the local community.
In order to do this, we organise events in the local community and undertaking activities to raise vital funds for the day to day running of our club in addition to raising money to build our clubhouse. Across the season we hold events such as bonfire night celebrations, 7's tournaments and family fun days. To continue to do this we need to undertake some repairs and modernisation at the club including improvements to our toilet and kitchen facilities. Our latest project "Around the Grounds" is to raise funds to support this.
We are coming together as club members to raise funds in a time where we have been unable to get together to play the game we love to raise funds. The decision was to undertake individual challenges in line with government regulations, but to do them all at the same time to keep up moral and encourage each other. We will use social media and messaging to keep each other, our sponsors and community updated
