Extra Workforce Day – Saturday 1 July

June 18th, 2017 Comments off
Due to the number of tasks that require completing during the summer break we have decided to hold a second Workforce Day on Saturday 1 July starting at 1.00pm (this should give everyone chance to watch the Lions match at home should they wish to do so).

We hope that as many helpers as possible will turn up to assist in completing all the outstanding tasks.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those that came to help out at the club yesterday.

Unfortunately a number of helpers were unavailable at the time the above photograph was taken.

Hedley made a good job of cleaning the advertising signs.

Sponsorship of New Post Protectors

June 12th, 2017 Comments off
We are urgently seeking sponsorship for a new set of post protectors for the 1st team pitch. They will be similar to the design shown opposite but will include the company logo of the successful sponsor.

Since we would expect the protectors to have a life of two seasons the cost of this sponsorship will be £1500 + VAT.

Should you be interested in taking up this sponsoring opportunity (the protectors will be very visible to all the supporters throughout the seasons) would you please contact Howard Whiteley on 07712 182806 or by e-mail on secretary@wharfedalerufc.co.uk.

Go Ahead for the Balcony Extension

June 2nd, 2017 Comments off
The Yorkshire Dales National Park has granted planning permission for the Club to extend the external balcony which will provide an additional specator viewing facility and a covered standing area underneath. The balcony will be doubled in depth and extend across the front of the club house. Unlike the current structure, the steel railings will be replaced with glass ballustrade panelling.

The next stage is the task of funding the project. The club would welcome anyone who wishes to contribute to the project through either the provision of funding or the various services still required to implement the strucutre e.g. predevelopment activities such as building regulations and steel work calculations, general construction, provision of materials.

The club is also seeking to provide a number of A-frame picnic table/benches underneath the balcony. Opportunties exist for sponsorship of a bench and also for individual engraved sponored glass panels on the balcony. If you feel you can contribute in anyway with this project, please contact David Baker on 07810308958 or chairman@wharfedalerufc.co.uk.
