CONGRATULATIONS LEWIS TRELOAR
The club would like to add its congratulations to L/Cpl Lewis Treloar of the Royal Anglian Regiment on the award of his MBE by the Queen for services in Afghanistan. At the time of the award Lewis was the first private in the Anglians history to receive an MBE. Lewis played for many years in the Paul Malynn & Colin Dunbar era mini & youth team and was noted for being a very rapid winger. You can check the link to the presentation on the EDP24 website here

NORWICH TOP THE ECRU SALES OF THE RFU GRAND DRAW RAFFLE TICKETS
For the second year running, Norwich topped the sales, within Eastern Counties of tickets for the RFU Grand Draw with £3,205. What's the significance of this? Ninety pence in the pound comes back to the club which is very helpful in paying our way so a big thank you to everyone that either sold or bought a ticket, It's very much appreciated.
Honorary Life Memberships Granted
Those present at the AGM were delighted to bestow honorary life membership on two stalwarts of the club, Director of Rugby, former coach and 1st XV captain David Everitt and former player and groundsman, for longer than most people can remember, Graham Hilton. Both awards are richly deserved, congratulations to both.

Volunteer coordinator appointed
Di Micklethwaite has agreed to take on the role of Volunteer Coordinator. This won't amount to much if volunteers are not forthcoming. The first task is to establish exactly what jobs can be sub divided into much smaller jobs making them much less time consuming and arduous. Job descriptions then need detailing so that people know exactly what is involved. In the meantime please put your names forward to identify how many volunteers we have. The more volunteers, the smaller the jobs. Please get in touch.
