There are so many retailers that are involved in this organisation - you must shop at some of them?!!!
We are a members club & we have approximately 400 members to date, so we can really make a difference. I know a few of you lot like a holiday e.g Rob Stephens!! See if you can book through easyfundraising?!!
A large proportion of us shop online anyway (I know I do), one of the hardest things with something new is remembering. There is a reminder you can add to your computer -https://new.easyfundraising.org.uk/donation-reminder/ or if you have an iPad, iPhone or android phone you can download the easyfundraising app - simply use the app rather than using the safari or google to shop and it will automatically donate.
Let's embrace this new way of fundraising & the club really can benefit - Tell your better halves & friends.
Information: The Club will be open from 12 noon and the Field will be officially opened at 2pm by Brian’s Family. This will be followed with a 2.30pm kick off against Breconshire Rivals Cefn Coed.
The Pitch Board which so many have donated to will be unveiled in the Clubhouse after the match followed by a fireworks display and a Sing-a-long with friends from Talgarth Male Voice Choir.
Join us in SECURING THE FUTURE OF RUGBY AT GWERNYFED.
IT’S OFFICIAL, THE PITCHES ARE OURS!
We have finally closed the deal to buy the freehold of our pitches from Powys County Council.
Rob Stephens and Pete Weavers signed the contract for the Club on 15th November. Mike Harris, our solicitor at Williams Beales, exchanged and completed the contract and transfer on our behalf on Wednesday 22nd November, 2017.
Our future is in our own hands.
This is a huge achievement that owes so much to so many. Everyone involved with scaling what seemed to be a mountain when we resolved to buy the freehold is entitled to give themselves a huge pat on the back.
On Saturday 30th December 2017 we will welcome Cefn Coed RFC on which occasion we will formally re-name the ground The Brian Jones Memorial Field in tribute to Titch, our late sage, mentor and inspiration. Join us for a big day when we can all pat each other on the back prior to moving on to the next chapter in the life of our beloved Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club.
If proof were needed, this proves that together we can grow from great strength to even greater strength!
Official Opening ofTHE BRIAN JONES MEMORIAL FIELD.
On Saturday 30th December 2017 we welcomed Cefn Coed RFC and our supporters, friends and family in joining us to formally re-name the ground to “The Brian Jones Memorial Field” in tribute to Titch, our late sage, mentor and inspiration. Thank you to all for joining us on the day. We look forward to the next chapter in the life of our beloved Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club.
The Club is immensely sad to have to report the untimely death of Will Skyrme who passed away on Monday 1st October while at home in Llanfilo.
Will was one of the original ‘green, white and blacks’, going on from Gwernyfed to play with huge distinction in the front row for Ebbw Vale RFC before returning to finish his playing career at his beloved home Club.
Will was a Committee man and Life Member, always happy to turn his hand to anything that helped his Club. Most importantly of all, Will was a massively popular man, always with a ready smile and a great friend to everyone fortunate enough to know him.
Clearly all of our thoughts are with Eileen, Paul, Danny, Laura and all of Will’s family with whom we will share many fond and warm memories of Will over the coming weeks, months and years. In the meantime, from all of your comrades at Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club, rest in peace, Will.
