- Volunteers needed - Warwickshire Summer Sevens – Saturday 15th June 2013 – 12 noon (Start time tbc)
Kenilworth Rugby Club have been invited to host the first of three Warwickshire Summer Sevens events to be held throughout the County this summer. It is anticipated that up to 9 club sides will be participating with ourselves, Barker Butts, Sutton Coldfield, Stoke Old Boys, Earlsdon and Leamington already having committed to the competition.
We are hosting the competition down at the Cowpatch (as two pitches will be required throughout the event). To do that we also intend to provide food and of course drink to keep players and spectators ‘happy’. As such, we need volunteers to assist in the setting up and running of a bar and the provision of barbeque food throughout the event.
Can you please let me know if you are available to help out on the day, even if it is only for an hour or so, your help and involvement will be most welcome.
- Does anyone have a spare Hoover that still works. The club’s existing one is on its last legs and Paul would appreciate a ‘new’ one!
- Is there anyone in the club who can sort out our TV/Sky/DVD system to make it easier to operate and use throughout the club. In the ideal world we want the Sky box/DVD sets behind the bar and wired up to all three TV’s. If you think you can help with this let me know.
- We now know the teams in our league (Mids 1 west) next season and these are: Barkers' Butts, Berkswell & Balsall, Burton, Hereford, Kenilworth, Lichfield, Malvern, Market Bosworth, Old Laurentian, Silhillians, Stoke, Stratford, Walsall and Whitchurch.
- Volunteers – helpers needed for work around club
As of every summer, well throughout the year in reality, we need volunteers to help out with the general maintenance and upkeep of the club. There is much to do in respect of tidying up, decorating, repairing, improving etc. both around the main pitch and clubhouse area and down at the Cowpatch. To get all such work done and identify achievable work programmes we need your help.
If you think you can afford some time to assist or you feel you have a particular skill or quality that would be of use to the club (even if it is simply a willingness to get involved in some way or another and ‘muck him’) then please let either myself or Willie know that you can afford some time to help out.
We are currently in the process of identifying all that needs to be done and will organise work parties in order to carry out the work. To assist in that process we have been awarded a small grant by Nat West in conjunction with the RFU (Nat West Force) promoting the involvement of members in self help projects.
If you feel you would like to offer your own particular brand of skills in keeping the club operating efficiently throughout the year, whatever those skills may be, please let us know – it would be great to see you!
