Players, families, supporters and sponsors all “mucked in” at Ellingham & Ringwood’s Raymond Brown Memorial Ground to get their clubhouse ready for the new season and for the Rugby World Cup, which starts in September.


The event was part of Nat West Rugby Force, which is investing in rugby clubs across the country as part of the build up for the Rugby World Cup.


Nat West helped meet the cost of materials, but all of the work had to be carried out by club volunteers.


Ivan Torpey, Hampshire’s Rugby Development Officer helped out at the event and said “It was great to see so many volunteers from across the whole club”. He added, “This has not only helped get the club ready for the coming season, but has also built up a great team spirit across the club”.


Ellingham & Ringwood run three men’s sides and a women’s side, as well as junior boy’s and girl’s teams in every age from Under 6’s to Under 18’s. If you’d be interested in playing for the club, or would like to get involved in any other way you should contact Steve Benson on (07702) 953500.


During the World Cup all of England’s fixtures and a number of other big games will be shown on television at the club house – and details will be available on the club web site www.errfc.com closer to the event.
