Chairman’s message – We are back!
Canterbury RFC

Rugby training can recommence on Wednesday 2 December 2020, at this time we all have to assume that it will be at stage A on the return to community road map, as soon as we get confirmation we will advise of any changes.

Lockdown 2 has given the opportunity to review our facilities, furniture has been changed, TV’s and sound system are having an overhaul, the changing rooms are being re-painted, our medical facilities have been upgraded, a wood burning stove has been installed in the clubhouse and a coffee shop is to be created internally at the end of the clubhouse in the new year. These are alongside numerous odd jobs that have been completed with many more to come.

The down side of Tier 3 is that our bar and catering facilities have to remain closed, therefore we have been forced to cancel the lunch on December 5 and the John Bentley fundraiser on the 11 December. We hope possibly in vain to be able to still hold the Christmas lunch on the 19 December.

The shop will be open on Sundays from today (29/11) from 9 am to 11 am

Looking forward we will be able to return to full midweek training from Monday 4 January 2021 as we have slots booked on the STP at the Langton.

We have a number of volunteer vacancies which we are keen to fill, whilst rugby is quiet, we are looking for a club secretary, a mini fixtures secretary, a volunteer coordinator  and help with the teams who are currently running safeguarding, communications, social, facilities and ground. f you feel you could commit around three hours per week for any of the aforementioned roles please contact me by emailing

In finishing I would like to thank all of you for your continued input and messages of support.

Best wishes
