Norfolk RFU Christmas Carol Service

Just an advanced note for the diary that there will be a Norfolk RFU carol service on Sunday 11th December at St Johns RC Cathedral at 4:00pm. Everyone welcome whatever their religion, denomination (or none) to come together with fellow members of the rugby community in the season of goodwill.



It is with the greatest sadness that we have to announce the death of Steve Read after a long illness bravely borne. Steve was well known within the cricket and rugby fraternities having been an enthusiastic player of both games and playing at Norwich as part of the Stags team. Steve was also a great supporter and sponsor of the club through his business Read Brothers Ltd.

The deepest sympathy of everyone at the club is extended to Isobel and all of Steve's family and friends. He will be sorely missed.


Steve's funeral will take place at 2:30pm on Wednesday 7th December at St Mary & St Andrew's Church, Horsham St Faith. Family flowers only but donations to Cancer Research UK in his memory should be sent c/o Gordon Barber, 317 Aylsham Road, Norwich, NR3 2AB
