The family fun day, which takes place on Sunday 8th September from 10.30am until 3pm at Evesham Rugby Club, will bring the community together in a day filled with activity. 

The free entry event will host a fantastic variety of entertainment and activities including: rugby try outs with coaching sessions for ages under 7 to under 16 and colts, a BBQ, a bar, and a tombola. The kids will be suitably entertained with bouncy castles, an ice cream van, and a sweet stall. Families will also be able to watch Evesham Rugby Club’s colts team play against Stafford colts at 2pm.

The 138-year-old club, whose first team plays in the Midlands Division - Midlands 2 West (South), has a rich sporting history and work with disability, local community and youth groups.

 Phil Maclean, Marketing Director at The Valley Evesham said:

“A “sport for all” mentality underpins grassroots sport: the focus on encouraging sporting participation on a broader scale within the community.

 “Investing in grassroots sport also creates opportunities and builds communities. Not only is sport widely recognised as a tool to encourage a more active and healthy lifestyle, but it also contributes to creating a more inclusive and close-knit community. This is why supporting Evesham Rugby Club is so important to us.”

 

Chris Houghton, Coach at Evesham Rugby Club said:

“We’re really grateful for The Valley Evesham’s generous cash donation which will support the family fun day and we hope to work in partnership long-term. Sport and recreation clubs are often at the hub of community life, and the team at The Valley Evesham really understands this.”

Community engagement is a way to build and sustain relationships between public services and neighbourhoods - helping them both to understand and take action on the needs or issues that communities experience.
