GRAHAM HILTON'S TRIP TO TWICKENHAM
Our groundsman Graham Hilton received a lifetime achievement award for his tireless work over decades both for the club and Norfolk RFU. In recognition of this, he was treated to a day at Twickenham on the day of the England v Italy game.
His itinerary included a tour of the ground, lunch before the game and dinner with the players and officials afterwards. He received his award from England Coach Eddie Jones.
We are delighted that Graham had such a great day and the photographer even managed to get him to smile, occasionally!
Well done Graham, richly deserved.
