Steering group needed for ambitious clubhouse project

As we start to emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic, Llantwit Major RFC are taking the ambitious steps to reignite the plans to build a new multipurpose community sports club on the site of the existing rugby club.  The new build first proposed in 2016 has laid dormant for 5 years however the club now feel they are in a position to start fulfilling the enormous potential of the local community.

There is no doubt that what we have at Llantwit Major RFC is enormous potential. Potential to build a modern facility, that can be used for innovative community engagement whilst helping to generate finances that improve the welfare of our members and so much more. One thing that is apparent from speaking to people locally is that within our community have people with a whole range of skills that could be utilised to help drive this venture forward.

There are people within our club who may be existing volunteers, parents of current junior players, parents of older members, ex-players who as part of a new steering group may be help to create a better future for the people who use the rugby club and its facilities. It is for this reason that we are now looking to put together a clubhouse development steering group that can help create a facility at the very heart of our community.

Our vision for the club moving forward is to create an exciting facility that houses multiple societies and provides financial sustainability to its users as well as providing a venue to be embraced by the community. Let’s not beat around the bush, our plans are ambitious and because of that we need dedicated people with a love of the club and the community of Llantwit Major.

I am looking for expressions of interest from people who feel they can be the problem solvers, collaborators and organisers of this endeavour who really want get on board and not only help create the vision, but contribute to its delivery.
