Rugby Union in Fakenham and surrounding area has received a major boost today when Fakenham Rugby Union football Club Ltd was chosen by the Rugby Football Union to be a recipient of one of its Better Facilities Grants for the 2015 Rugby World Cup which is being staged in England and Wales.
Fakenham RUFC has been chosen as a recipient of a Lead Up & Legacy Goalposts grant, strengthening the partnership between the RFU and Club, to be Fit for 2015. The grant will enhance the club's facilities and provide a resource for use by the local community.
This is in addition to the Market Tolls award which has also recently been received.
"This investment by the RFU is excellent news." said Adrian Vertigan, Mayor of Fakenham, "and will complement the recent Market Tolls grant of £3100 given to the rugby club to help prepare their new pitch on Trapp Lane. The Rugby Club has an enthusiastic group of hard-working volunteers and our funding will enable them to do even more for young people in the community in the future."
Hosting the World Cup provides an opportunity to deliver a huge participation legacy for rugby union and the RFU has committed a £10m investment which will create a network of over 500 Lead Up and Legacy
If you missed it - HARD LUCK - you will have to wait for the next one!
A very enjoyable evening was had by the many people who did turn up -
Was the beef good? you bet it was,
Did it look like the photo? - almost! (no butter or lettuce)
Would I go to another one? - Like a shot!
