As this challenging year draws to a close, we wish all our friends and supporters all the joy of the festive season. Whilst we are aware that many will be missing loved ones at what is usually a time of togetherness and happiness, we hope you will all take a moment to celebrate the fellowship of rugby and the bonds of the Wharfedale community.
Despite the difficulties of the past year, the club remains strong and healthy. We offer particular thanks to our sponsors, Cavalry Club and loyal members who have continued to support the club financially despite the absence of competitive rugby at all levels this season. We are also extremely grateful to those key committee members who have managed our finances and co-ordinated our pandemic response – and to all the volunteers who have kept the show on the road, not least the Mini/Junior coaches and leaders who have done such a great job in keeping our younger members engaged and active when so many other avenues have been closed off to them.
A Merry Christmas to all and we look forward to seeing you back at the Avenue when the time is right.
Chairman, Wharfedale RUFC
