Kitchen Work

Work Begins on New Kitchen

There will be different noises this week in the Rugby Club’s kitchen at Mains Park.  Instead of the sound of cooking, people there will be the sound of sawing and hammering. Work begins in the Club House at Mains Park, where the kitchen is going to be completely refurbished and modernised.

This project which is being largely funded by a £30,000 grant from WREN’s FCC Scottish Action Fund, will provide a much needed revamp of Linlithgow Rugby Club’s kitchen

Ken Richardson, President of the Rugby Club, is excited that the project is taking shape.

Ken said “Our current kitchen dates back twenty-five years to when the current Club House was extended. It is now in need of a complete make-over and it will be great to install one with up-to-date equipment in a modern environment.  This will provide a real boost to the facilities provided by the Club.  It will benefit our young Minis, School or Senior players, as well as the many other local community groups who use the Club.”

Ken Richardson went on to say “Five years ago we began our ambitious 2020 Vision Project to refurbish and develop the Club’s facilities in the run-up to our 50thAnniversary which takes place next year. This latest venture is a significant step on our way.” 

The work should be complete by the end of February.
