UPDATE January 2007
The below graphics are early drafts of the proposed new clubhouse development over at Caedelyn Park. It is not the finished article by all means but will give you an idea of what we are aiming for.
The Council are holding a public meeting at Rhiwbina Recreation Club at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 23rd January 2007 to assess local support for the proposed development. If you have a stake in the club and would like to see this build go ahead please turn up and give your opinions to the Council representatives.
If the proposal goes ahead there will need to be a huge effort from everyone connected to Rhiwbina RFC to raise funds to assist with the build. The car park would have to be totally relaid and parking bays marked out and speed humps installed all at our cost. This is before we get to the main building itself. If anyone has had experience of fundraising for similar projects please contact the committee-your help would be invaluable. This project would also benefit the surrounding area by providing better security in the park and much needed community facilities with it's large hall and floor space available for hire to interested local groups and societies.
We hope to have a 3D walkthrough and more current plans and graphics on display at the public meeting.
As officially having the biggest playing membership of any rugby club in Wales it is only fitting that we establish a clubhouse and facilities to reflect the growing needs of the club.
This is a golden opportunity that everyone associated with Rhiwbina RFC needs to work hard at making a reality. We may never get another chance like this.
