NIGEL DOYLE - RIP
It is with shock and sadness that we have somewhat belatedly learned of the death of a former player Nigel Doyle who only hung up his boots a couple of years ago in his mid 50's. His funeral is on Thursday 31st August at midday at Beccles crematorium. Deepest sympathy from the club to Nigel's family and friends.

MESSAGE TO MEMBERS FROM CHAIRMAN BOB ANNABLE
Dear member you may have read an article in the local press that our relocation plans are on hold until we resolve an issue with Norfolk CC Highways. This article results from a leak to the press at a delicate time in our discussion s with various interested parties which is very disappointing. The source of that leak is unknown.
That said we are where we are and the article is correct in outlining our current challenges to progress our relocation plans. We will keep you posted of developments and if you have any questions then either myself, Andy Pott or Steve Henson will be happy to answer them.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS NORFOLK - QUIZ NIGHT
You may recall the awesome 300 mile cycle ride last season organised by Norwich Rugby Club's Mark Loveday and friends and supported by many other clubs and cyclists. It raised a huge amount of money in support of worth charities in Norfolk. One of those beneficiaries was Special Olympics Norfolk. The funds raised made a huge difference to the members of the Special Olymics team and it was very emotional seeing them at the club to welcome the riders home. Katie Loveday also organised a quiz night last season specifically in support of that charity. Katie is organising another one on Friday 12th October. Details on the attached flyer.

HOW AWESOME IS THIS?
Our latest main club sponsor, Scott Timber Buildings has installed two custom made dug outs at the club which will be welcomed with great enthusiasm by the players and officials as the winter draws in. We are indeed very fortunate to be the recipients of such great quality dugouts for the players. Thanks Tristan and PJ.
