New Clubhouse at Whitemans Green breaks ground

The Club broke ground at Whitemans Green on Saturday for the much anticipated new multi-sports Clubhouse that looks set to be ready by Autumn 2024. The dig was led by the HHRFC girls squad, their captain Kaddie Camarra and the 1st XV captain Wilf Bridges, who will all benefit considerably from the new facilities. The old Clubhouse was full for lunch to mark presentation to the girls squads at U12 and U14 of polo shirts and robes, the latter provided with the support of Freshmills and Edwards.

Working closely with build partner Mitchell Design & Construction the Club has approaching £2m already raised to build the new Clubhouse, a collective fund raising effort that includes the continued support and generosity of local business partners Adelphi, Pets Corner and Kalimex, plus recent much appreciated financial support from Ansty and Staplefield Parish Council. The Club is continuing to work tirelessly towards its ultimate target with a new community Crowdfunder campaign.

The Club has secured match funding from the Aviva Community Fund for every individual donation totalling a maximum £50,000, plus an overall match contribution from Sport England if certain fund raising targets are achieved before 1 March 2024. If the £50,000 Crowdfunder target is reached with over 100 donations this will translate into £107,500 for the Clubhouse Fund. The Club is grateful for donations of any size - to find out more and donate any sum up to £250 visit the HHRFC Clubhouse Project Crowdfunder page .
