These volunteers help with everything from watering and maintaining the grounds to coaching, managing and referring games to erecting seating for any one of the regional and national games they now play host too.

“Key to the success of this growing club is the enthusiasm and commitment of their volunteers who have had to step up to cope with this growth, longer season and string of events they now play host to. A huge congratulations to this team for transforming themselves into an extensive club that operates all year round, offers incredible support to its players of all abilities and for keeping so many people active,” says Miss somerville.

“It’s wonderful through this Award to be able to acknowledge the huge hours these dedicated volunteers have committed to training, maintaining the grounds and hosting the multitude of games they are now in the running for. A big congratulations to this team for rising to the challenge time after time and supporting their players to such a high level,” says Mayor Mylchreest.
