Bulletin 31

2020BULLETIN 31 – May 2015

As promised, here is the news of the Golf Day and an update on Pound Round the Pitch. Plus a reminder not to miss Belles & Bellinis.

Golf Day – Friday 1 May

Our second Golf Day, held at Kingsfeld Golf Centre, was another success. Everyone who took part was extremely complimentary about how enjoyable it had been once again. In addition to the golf, there were the usual side competitions of longest putt and Hit the Gong, as well as the traditional raffle.

All of this brought in the grand total of £1,800. This is another great effort and we are grateful to everyone who took part – and to Nick Chadwick and Mark Wells for organising the successful event.

And our thanks to Rob, Jane, Lee and all the rest of the staff at Kingsfield for their help on the day and for their continuing support.

Belles & Bellinis – Saturday 30 May

Tickets are going for Belles and Bellinis, an afternoon for the ladies between 2.00 and 4.00 in the Club House that will be transformed. There will be a glass of fizz and delicious cakes, so make sure you get your ticket. They are behind the bar at the Club House or available from Helen Morrison.

Why not get together to form a party of mums from among your son’s or daughter’s age-group to come along and share a table and laugh. With the Micros/Minis Fun Day the following day, it would be a different way to bring the curtain down on a busy season.

There will be a raffle for a full size LRFC rugby ball cake made and donated by Truly Scrumptious, for which we are grateful.  Thanks to the Tranquil Room who will also be offering not only “mini-tasters” on the day but follow-up discounts for their services. This is an excellent offer.

Belles and Bellinis will be a fun afternoon and tickets cost only £10.00 each.

Bring Home the Bacon

A couple of pigs have trotted in recently to nudge their total forward by £61 to £6,590.

We have an opportunity to push that already amazing total even more. We are planning the last Piggy Round-Up of the season on Sunday 31 May – with a difference. That is the day of the Micros/Minis Fun Day and for every pig handed in, we shall give out a free bacon roll. That is Bringing Home the Baconwith a vengeance!

You do not need to be associated with the Micros or Minis to hand in a pig. More mature members can come along to, hand in a piggy bank and have a bacon roll. You could also see the fun, enthusiasm and skill our Micros and Minis – and their parents – bring to the Club every Sunday

Remember, at a Round-Up, we do not mind if the banks are full or half empty. We would just like to bring in the pigs. There are literally hundreds out there and half-full, three-quarters-full or whatever there must be a good amount in them collectively.

If you want, you can also take an empty one away to fill over the summer!

Pound Round the Pitch – Update

In response to our appeal in the last Bulletin for money to be handed in by those who had not yet done so, our total has now jumped to £2,900. That means that we can send a cheque to Comic Relief for £290, retaining the rest for our Development. That has been a great achievement as well as a memorable March morning for all who took part.

And there are a few more sheets still out there with the names of people who walked so if you are one of them, please pop your money in an envelope marked Pound Round the Pitch and leave it behind the bar.


Many thanks to everyone who handed in a bag of clothes. We hope you appreciate the extra space you have. We are now waiting to hear how much we shall raise on the third occasion we have done this.

Expect a Bags2Rugby each season from now on. It is win-win. You get to clear out your cupboards and the Club raises some funds.

Comedy Night

And also thanks to the Senior Players for organising another fun evening in the Club House and for donating half of the proceeds to the Development. This brought in another £600.


All this effort means that the total for our One Last Heave has reached £21,764 which continues to be a tremendous effort on the part of Members.


The next 2020 Bulletin, will tell you all about Belles & Bellinis and Bring Home the Bacon plus any other updates, as we bring the Spring Programme to an end. It will be the last 2020 Bulletin in this format so look out for it next month.
