Club stalwart receives Lifetime achievement award

10 months ago By Perry Oliver

Peter Scarlett MBE, Former Club President, VP & Charity Director has been recognised at the Hertfordshire Service to Sport Awards 2017

Peter has been a great stalwart of Bishops Stortford RFC, having first joined as a player in 1960, whereupon he soon developed a reputation for his pace on the wing. He then became Club Captain during the seasons 1961/62 and 1962/63.

Upon his retirement from playing, Peter continued his involvement with the Club, becoming President from 2003/05, serving with distinction during his term of office, making a real effort to communicate with all levels throughout the Club and not merely the 1st XV.

In 2007 Peter became a Trustee of the Club, assuming responsibility for fundraising and community relations, both roles for which he was ideally suited.

His success with fundraising has become legendary and this has enabled the Club to carry out improvement projects to the pitches and clubhouse, with a total expenditure of c. £800,000 during that time. His dedication in preparing and pursuing grant applications as well as liaising with grant providers has been quite exceptional.

Peter was at one time the Club’s Press Officer and this put him in an ideal position to take responsibility for Community Relations, particularly with the Local Authorities whose support the Club really needs.

His stamina continues unabated and he is now pursuing grant applications for proposed new floodlights, stands and new changing rooms.

Bishops Stortford RFC would be significantly poorer without the very considerable contribution that Peter has made both on and off the field over a period of 57 years since he first joined the Club.

Peter received his award at the Hertfordshire Service to Sport awards evening held last Tuesday (28/11) at The University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield

Congratulations & Thank You Peter
