High Sheriff of Gloucestershire pays us a visit!

We were delighted to welcome Air Marshall Sir Dusty Miller KBE to the club today. Sir Dusty is the new High Sheriff of Gloucestershire and had asked to come down and visit us after the High Sheriff Grant Programme had awarded us funds that will allow us to purchase additional pitch lighting units. The additional lighting units will make a huge difference in the winter months allowing us to light more of the pitches for evening training sessions. Sir Dusty met with some of our coaches and children as well as our Chairman Adrian Bishop, Treasurer Sarah Cole and Communications Manager Gill Mould and was very impressed by the commitment everyone showed to ensuring that all our young players get the very best experience possible. Thank you Sir Dusty for your time today and we hope to see you again soon!

GRFU U11 Festival Success

GRFU U11 Festival Success

What an amazing day we’ve had today! It was fantastic to see so many teams at our grounds to take part in the GRFU U11 Festival. We’ve all missed being able to take part in these great events over the last few years so it was great to see everyone coming together and having such a great time. We would like to thank all our amazing volunteers who helped make today such a success for the club – there are just too many to thank individually but particular thanks to Liza and Billy (who do such an amazing job for us with catering) our coaches, our ladies team, parents, U12, U13, U15 and Colts for turning out early to help too. Thanks to Gloucestershire Rugby Football Union for giving us the opportunity to host and those who supported us with advertising BPS Builders Merchants Akuma Falcon Security Solutions Ltd Highfield MOTS Roberts Express Delivery WHC Hire Services Three Counties Firewood Services We hope everyone had a brilliant time and well done to everyone who took part today.
