CLUB MEMBERSHIP PACKAGES 2019/20 Season (NON-PLAYING)
Welcome to the 2019/20 season and one which we hope will bring continued success for our great club, on and off the field!
The past 2 seasons has seen the club galvanise and bounce back from the difficult times of the 2016/17 season. I think we would all agree that the club now is as strong as it ever has been, with a real connect to our traditional supporter base and the ethos of London Welsh RFC that dates back to our roots in 1885. There is no better time to join London Welsh and be part of our community at our Old Deer Park.
The London Welsh RFC family looks forward to this coming season with great optimism for the future and as ever we want you all to be part of it! After successive promotions, a cup win and an unbeaten home record stretching back over two years, the future is bright at Old Deer Park under Director of Rugby Cai Griffiths and his coaching team; now including the exciting prospect of Steven Shingler brought in as backs coach. However, the club would be nothing without you and your unwavering support. It is now that the club invites you all once again to renew your membership for the coming season and knowing that your vital funding through membership has never been more important as we enter year three of the five year strategic plan.
The membership packages were agreed at our AGM on 22 May 2019. Subscriptions for the new season have increased (slightly) despite our very best efforts to keep these as low as possible. The major factor in this seasons increases, and in the importance of your contributions, is to accommodate running costs of our excellent facility at Old Deer Park: We announced at the club AGM that the new lease, securing the clubs future at Old Deer Park, had been completed and that this had given rise to a significant increase in rental payments to the Crown Estate.
Members at the AGM also supported the concept of building a reserve fund for the future and so that we have funds to see that the financial perils of the past never again darken our doors. The club wishes to invest in the facilities at Old Deer Park and to ensure that we have funds to build a sustainable future. To support this concept you will see a new level of membership in the Gold Patron Membership. This package not only seeks to give members a unique opportunity to interact with their club, but will provide for a percentage of all Gold Patron membership receipts to go towards funding the sinking fund for the future.
We have also renewed our very popular junior and family playing membership packages that provide flexibility and inclusion for the mini, junior and youth sections. The junior and family packages provide for some excellent savings for our community London Welsh RFC family and we especially hope that these packages will provide for greater access to the game as we build our club for the future as well as the present.
Our packages offer value for money and will ensure that all our members have a welcoming, enjoyable and unique experience at London Welsh.
