Better Facilities award 2006/07
Chelmsford RFC (Essex County RFU)
After nearly six years of fundraising, Chelmsford RFC were able to build a new two-storey clubhouse together with floodlights. The club now has four changing rooms, inclusive of showers, an officials changing room, physio room, activities clubroom and bar as well as new training lights and additional car-parking.
The club saw a substantial improvement in many areas as a result of their new facilities; including an increase in ladies membership, number of coaches, midweek leagues and training, veterans and the development of links with other local sports clubs and social clubs.
