We met by telephone conference on Tuesday evening & had a very constructive call. Amongst the things that we discussed was the need to keep communication going with all members and stakeholders during the lock down. With no rugby and no clubhouse activity for the foreseeable future there are some very real challenges for the club and we want to share those with you, talk you through the plans that we have put in place and give you the opportunity to ask questions and put forward any ideas that might help the club and its members during this time. This includes the plans for the next stage in the clubhouse development. Once we have settled on the best technical option, in the next few days you will receive an invite to take part in the first ever NBRFC telephone conference. We look forward to speaking to you then.
Fortunately, the club sits in a reasonable place from a cash perspective but we need to be well managed and prudent during this difficult time. The priority is for people to stay safe and well but we do want the club to be in a good place when we are able to resume our normal activities. We remain grateful to our sponsors and include below brief updates from some of them. Please note that these were correct when we contacted our sponsors but this may have changed.
