Salisbury Rugby Football Club


The project is to provide sheltered seating for those supporting their teams, whether they are from the local Wiltshire community or from visiting teams. Teams are from thriving 450+ strong Mini/Junior sections, the ever more popular Ladies section, over 50s walking rugby contingent, up to the 1st XV, currently competing in the National SW league.

Our goals:

  • A successful application would fund the provision of much needed accessible spectator seating as the current facilities are only a small corrugated shelter on a rather steep bank beside the pitch or pitch-side standing behind the railings.
  • We need to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our disabled supporters. Also we want to encourage every generations but as current facilities have no shelter we are limiting it to those who are willing/able to stand in bad weather.
  • Provide better facilities available not only for use by our ever growing membership but only open up the possibility of making it available for use by the Salisbury wide sporting community and schools, colleges, etc.

How we will achieve our goals

The Community Award would enable the stands to be installed which otherwise would not be achievable.

Where the money will go

Provide a premier facility for the local rugby community, but also one that could be made available for wider use by local community projects, schools, colleges etc. to encourage team work and promote an active lifestyle.
