Herts Rugby Awareness Week

This project, which was designed to raise awareness of club rugby for both boys and girls across Hertfordshire, was the brainchild of two Welwyn RFC players - Rachel McCullough and Oren Blindell. With the support of the RFU, Hertfordshire RFU and the RFUW and funding from 'The Big Spend' through Hertfordshire County Council, the project has been taken into secondary schools across the county in the form of assemblies presented by pupils who are also players at local rugby clubs.

These presentations used a short video specially prepared for the occasion which incorporates, at it's heart, the RFU 'Core Values' DVD as well as some photographs of Hertfordshire boys and girls involved in rugby and a list of clubs in the county as you can see ....

It is really good to see projects like this which promote the boys and girls game equally and involve all the clubs in the county particularly when they are conceived, instigated and run by the youth players themselves. Congratulations to all involved but, of course, most particularly to Oren and Rachel at Welwyn RFC.
