RUGBY FORCE DAY at CHOBHAM RUGBY

As the final matches of the season came to an end Chobham volunteers came out in force to spend a day sprucing up the Clubhouse and grounds with all the energy and good nature that makes Chobham Rugby Club the special place it is.

Mike Vandenberg adds "I would like to say a huge thank you from myself, Michael Riley and Vince Kerr for the huge effort from everyone from u6s to the 1st XV. Thank you so much, we achieved so much. We would also like to thank the sponsors who generously helped out on Rugby Force Day : Graham Ogilvie of
The Morris Leslie Group; David Adams of Pennyhill Timber ; Rebecca Rassie of STIHL and Patrick Martin of The Groundcare Partnership"

We wish everyone a great Summer and look forward to the start of the new season. Thank you to all our volunteers and sponsors.
Go Mighty Chobham!
