Covid has had a devastating effect on all grassroots sport and rugby as a full contact one, has suffered most of all.
As a club we rely on coming together for fundraising drives, weekly participation and sponsors/commercial partners to provide an inclusive space for rugby. For most of the last 12 months this has not been possible, commercial partners like The Two Brewers have been virtually closed for the year making supporting us impossible. Many of our members have additionally struggled with their own personal circumstances, so paying membership has not been a priority.
40% of our members have stated that their mental health has suffered without the club, that's only the members that will admit that. We have worked hard to maintain our sense of community during the various lock downs but we need to be as strong as ever to welcome everyone back when we can.
