Club members turn up for a great day of work

The sun was shining again as club members descended on Millfields to help out with planned set of jobs and activities. This has been an annual event, and has gradually got bigger and bigger. We knew that last year would take some beating, but with the social media working overtime on promoting the day, we were hopeful of a good turnout.
Volunteers started at 7:00 (our builders like to start early!!), with the bulk of people arriving from 9:00.

With a breakfast bbq, teas and coffees on the go, the workers weren't going to go hungry!

Jobs completed...
Litter picking
Replacing the boundary fencing
Fixing memorabilia in the club house
Complete deep clean of kitchen
Hedge and boundary work
Installation of advertising boards
Erection of new platform for filming of games
Complete inventory check (shirts, equipment, clean down)
Weeding of paths
Electrical and carpentry work

There was even time to help a local resident with some work he wanted help with.

We were joined by our mayor Wendy Stamp, who continues to be a great advocate and supporter of sport in the community.
We were also delighted to see members of the croquet club who came down to participate.
All in all, around 70 members from 2 years to 80 years participated, making it the most successful event ever.
The club would like to thank everyone who came down and gave their time.
The club also want to thank England Rugby and Natwest for sponsoring this fantastic event for grass roots rugby.
