Vees get grant boost

Clubhouse to be given a makeover

RUGBY UNION: VERULAMIANS Rugby Club has received a boost in the form of a grant to help them give their Cotlandswick clubhouse a new lease of life.

The grant of �500, from Councillor Chris Brazier’s locality budget, will be used to fund essential repairs to the facility as well as a new coat of paint.

Verulamians’ first XV currently compete in Herts/Middlesex One and the club also has a veteran’s team and a junior section who compete under the banner, The Chariots.

The club hopes the improvements to its facilities will allow it to hire out the venue for parties and functions in a bid to raise income to enable them to continue offering the community a place to come and enjoy rugby union.

Robert Saunders, chairman of the Old Verulamian Rugby Football Club, said: “I would like to thank Chris Brazier and Hertfordshire County Council for their support and backing of the OVRFC. It is our continual mission to bring rugby at all levels and age groups to the community.”
