Following a pitch inspection at 07:30 hrs and with the ground covered in snow, min and youth rugby is cancelled.


January has been a positive month for the Club. The 1st XV have won both their crucial league games in style and are really starting to show their true potential. They have two tough away fixtures in February but on current form have every opportunity to continue a welcomed climb up the league.

On the volunteer development front we had 22 Mini and Youth Coaches, Administrators and Volunteers  pledge over 3 hours of their time on a cold Monday night completing the RFU’s Play it Safe course, this is a significant commitment towards achieving our accreditation and my thanks to everyone that attended and to Emma Cameron  and Vicky Regester for organising and their persistent encouragement.

We also had nine individuals spend  7 hours over two further cold Monday evenings completing the Emergency First Aid in Rugby course and all passed. Again great commitment and support.

This training was compelling enough to launch our fundraising for a Defibrillator at the Club and I am delighted to tell you that through the generosity of members and guests and a fantastic contribution from the Wroxham and Hoveton Lions Club obtained through the efforts of Jimmy Lenihan we now have sufficient funds to commit to the purchase of a Defibrillator through the Community Heartbeat Trust.

As I know many of you appreciate we do rely on  some key people to cover some critical roles within the administration of the Club. Some of these are spread too thinly and we would welcome any of you keen to volunteer  to support us with open arms. Ideally we would like people to come forward to cover the following roles:- Membership Secretary, Fixture Secretary and House Chairman and if any of you feel you would like to get involved and help support the Club and the Committee for next season please contact myself or Andy Pott our contact details are in the Members Handbook.

Calling all past players! The day is a reunion to remember Alan `Ziggy` Harvey and is open to players of all ages and abilities who have played for Norwich teams in the past. Rolling replacements means players can do a short shift if it suits. Hopefully participants will stay for a beer after the game but the lunch, which joins us with other revellers in the clubhouse, is optional. 

10.30am Meet at the Club.
11.00am Kick-off v NRFC Lions.
12.30pm Beer
1.00pm Lunch
3.00pm Support 1st XV v Woodford.

If you are interested please reply by email letting me know if you would like to play and how many places you would like for lunch. Also let me know the best contact email address and mobile number.
It would be a great help if you can spread the word...the more the merrier!

Mark Loveday is organising a 320 mile cycle ride over 3 days 8th 9th & 10th September, around all the rugby clubs in Norfolk in aid of the Wooden Spoon rugby charity and other Norfolk charities. He is looking for 100 riders and other non riding volunteers to help him. 

They are launching Club Together 2017 on Thursday 2nd March at The Dog House in St Georges Street Norwich. Here is the format for the evening:
6.30pm Welcome Drinks
7pm Presentation in which we will
·         Provide you with an overview of the challenge
·         Introduce you to the charities we are supporting
·         Explain the preparation required and the proposed training strategy
·         Provide registration forms to begin the process.
·         Answer any questions you may have
It will be a great opportunity to learn more about the concept and to meet other riders.
There will be representatives from our sponsors Pedal Revolution to answer any bike related queries.
So please mark your diaries and come along on the first step towards achieving something really special in 2017.
