REMINDER - Rob Baxter, the Head Coach at Premiership side Exeter Chiefs, will be the guest of honour at Sidmouth Rugby Club, Heydons Lane on Friday 24th July for a Question & Answer session in the newly refurbished Blackmore Clubhouse. The evening is one of a series of social events to celebrate the opening of the new attractive social space.

The Rugby Club Chairman, Lester Willmington, said ‘We are delighted to welcome Rob Baxter and his wife to the club and we truly appreciate the commitment from such a high profile coach and Exeter Chiefs, to local grass roots rugby. We hope Rob enjoys the evening at Sidmouth and we have asked the junior age groups and the girls rugby section to come-up with questions to ask him’.

The club house refurbishment, which has cost in the region of £30,000, with support from the RFU of £10,000, has just been completed. This project is a part of the Lead Up and Legacy fund promoted by the RFU. Sidmouth RFC Patrons have also kindly donated to the project.

Sidmouth RFC Director, Kerin Hamill, led the project which was managed by  Lee Sowden and QES Electrical. Kerin said ‘Lee and his team have been fantastic and ensured the project came in on time and on budget. The refurbished bar looks great and must now be one of the best clubhouses in the South West. We do hope that our members and the local community will enjoy using it’.

Entry to the event is free and the clubhouse will be open from 7pm with the Q&A session, compered by Club Captain Dan Retter, starting at 8.30pm. As well as questions from the Junior section there will be an opportunity for questions from the floor. The project has been completed ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2015 and provides a fresh and welcoming environment for members to enjoy the spectacle together. A series of events is planned in the lead up to the event with 12 games planned to be shown on the big screen. Sidmouth Rugby Club looks forward to welcoming Rob Baxter for what promises to be a great evening.
