NatWest RugbyForce Day (Updated)

June 26th, 2016 Comments off

Over fifty folk turned out last Saturday to carry out a multitude of tasks at Wharfedale’s Annual NatWest RugbyForce Day. The sun shone and the large turn-out were put to work by supervisor Adrian Parry.

Tasks ranged from painting the changing room floors, clearing gutters, cleaning advertising signs, sanding down and varnishing the subs benches, improving the areas around the subs benches to the collection and removal of grass cuttings etc. All the work planned for the day was completed.

During the course of the morning a dozen or so junior players enjoyed a one-off training session organised by our Youth Rugby Develoment Officer, Hedley Verity.

The volunteers were treated to cold drinks and Bacon Butties (supplied by the Red Lion in Burnsall).

The Volunteers

At the end of the day Andy Peel, Chairman of the Junior Section, thanked everyone for all their hard work.

A selection of photographs are now available under the Photos tab near the top of this page.
