Shelford Rugby Club
Visitors to Shelford Rugby Club and the wider facilities at Davey Field’s no longer have to worry about the inadequate condition of the car-park on site, as a grant of £39,560 from local business Mick George Ltd has permitted a complete overhaul.
Having not been touched since a Clubhouse restructure project in 2000, the car-park has experienced much wear and tear leading to the formation of many potholes, cracks and surface deterioration which was only further hindered with the more recent 3G pitch installation.
As well as serving the 1,000 members associated with the Rugby Club and other external group sessions, it is anticipated that the recent upgrades will serve as a starting point to reopen discussions with Addenbrookes Hospital as a possible overflow parking solution.
Plans are now being formulated to improve the surrounding access roads to the facility in the future.
Louis Mann, Commercial Manager at Shelford Rugby Club said: ‘’The Club operates 5 senior men's teams, a women's team and 12 mini and youth teams for both girls and boys, and we’re keen to grow and develop further. For that to happen we recognise that we need to improve the overall experience of the Club, for which the car-park often forms the first impression for many. We’re grateful to Mick George Ltd for their contribution.’’
Stuart Costello, Marketing Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’As a business who operates a successful Earthworks division, we’re familiar with the benefits attributed to creating stable and flat infrastructure. It’s good to see another local group has benefited from the Community Fund program’’
