£40,000 Grant Bid Successful

A big thank you is due to our members and supporters who turned out to vote for our bid for a share of section 106 funding provided from property developments in the valley.

The Club has been successful in a bid for £40,000 of funding from Sidmouth Town Council. The money will go towards the development of the two pitches at Sidford.

The Sidmouth RFC bid came top of the poll of residents carried out by the Council on 6th December. The grant now means that the Club has all the necessary funding in place to go ahead with work to level both pitches and the training area and install a drainage system.

In addition to club funds, other grants have been secured from Sport England, who will oversee the project, the RFU and the Keith Owen Fund.

The tendering process will go ahead in January and work is planned to commence in April.
