Open Meeting

A date for your diary.

Wednesday 25th October is the date for an ‘Open Meeting’ when, now that we have achieved our aim of becoming a Trust, we will be in a position to inform you, the membership, about what this entails and what it will mean going forward.

You may remember that this process was begun in November last year and that we had originally hoped to have everything up and running for the start of this season.

 

There were many obstacles to negotiate and equally as many hoops to jump through however and the process took much, much longer than we had anticipated.

 

This was not of our making but due in no small part to the volume of applications received by OSCAR.

 

We are now at the stage where we believe we have most, though definitely not all, of the answers and feel it is now right to bring everyone up to speed.

 

The meeting will start at 7pm and is open to all members. There will be an opportunity for you to question what is going on and to offer opinion as to how the club should operate going forward.


BIggar RFC Charity Shop

Biggar RFC Charity Shop

 

Our High Street Charity Shop opened earlier today (Sunday 22nd October) and although the town was quieter than had been expected there was a brisk trade with folks also coming in for a gander! All seemed very impressed with both the layout and with the items for sale.

 

 

A huge thank you to Eric Shearer and GY for all their hard work in getting the place into shape. Thanks too to Nigel Pacey for the photographs and to many others who have assisted with for example coat-hangers and donations of clothing, books and games.

 

In addition to selling sports related items and Biggar RFC merchandise (see below) we will use the shop window to advertise weekend rugby fixtures. We would also like other sports clubs in the area to advertise their meetings/matches/events so that the Shop becomes a proper Sports Hub for Biggar and the surrounding area. To this end if you, as a Sports Club representative have an A4 sheet available which gives details of your club we will see that it is displayed in our window.

 

As explained the shop has a sportswear related focus - books and games are other items which we hope to sell.

 

We are also selling Biggar RFC merchandise which make ideal Christmas presents!

 

There are mugs, pens, pin badges, ties, bobble hats (3 varieties), hoodies, T-shirts, gillets.....anyone wishing to order club replica shirts must have placed their order by Nov 25th to guarantee Christmas time delivery.

 

We would still be delighted to receive pre-loved sportswear, books and games for which you no longer have a need! All will be very welocme and all will make the club a pound or two.

 

All items can be handed in to Hartree Mill Clubhouse, Biggar Youth Project or directly to GY.

 

Can you spare a few hours? We are also on the search for volunteers to man the shop which will open on Wednesdays to Sundays. A few hours would be brilliant! Names to GY please.
