Rugbyforce weekend

Members of Isle of Wight RFC swapped their rugby balls for power tools as part of the NatWest RugbyForce weekend. Created by RBS, RugbyForce is a community initiative that supports local rugby clubs in building for their future. Since the initiative was launched in 2009, RugbyForce has helped over 1,500 clubs at the grassroots of the game by providing them with tools to help coordinate a community-wide effort to give facilities a ‘make over’, online guidance and financial support. This year, IWRFC was awarded the top grant for the region of £2,500 to carry out works including refurbishing the toilets, as well as upgrading the disabled and baby changing facilities. This was combined with a whole club makeover, including repainting the changing rooms and smartening up the bar area. The Island’s MP, Andrew Turner, helped the club clean up its act by helping out on the day. Richard Freeman, Community Rugby Development Officer for the Isle of Wight, was also in attendance to provide support.
IWRFC Chairman, Nick Puckett, said: “The club is going through a sustained period of change and as the oldest rugby club on the island, which is also celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, is well placed to offer men ladies and children the chance to play rugby ahead of the rugby world cup next year. A brilliant turnout of players, partners and children over the course of the weekend ensured a great atmosphere while we worked and allowed us to complete all of the tasks we wanted to get done. This means that the work on the clubhouse is on schedule to be finished in time for the new season.
