Club house extension
Apr 1, 2016, 8:34 pm


Ashington Rugby Club are now ready to start build a large extension to the clubs function room, right up to the telephone mast fence. The work in the background has been ongoing now for 9 months or more, looking for funding to deliver this exciting project.

The extension will be approx. 120sq metres, this will give the club a new dance floor and a function room seating capacity for over 170 people, this will give the club greater opportunities to host parties and dinners, which will bring in additional income to support the club who invest heavily in the playing facilities and changing rooms. The club is also investing in a disabled toilet, the community and its users will benefit from this venture, the facility users are;

  1. Ashington Joint Welfare Rugby Football Club
  2. Ashington Rugby Cricket Club.
  3. Ellington Juniors Football Club.
  4. Green Lane Able Bodied and Disable Bodied Archery Club.
  5. Northumberland Lightning American Football Club.
  6. Northumberland Veterans Motor Cycle Club.

Ashington Rugby Club have set up a "Buy a Brick" fundraising event, bricks are being sold a various prices ranging from £25 Silver brick, £50 Gold brick and £100 Platinum brick, for this members can have their name inserted into a brick which will be mounted on a board just like the honours boards they have on an internal club house wall.

Should our Cricket club support the Rugby Club by purchasing a £100 brick and have our clubs name inserted into a brick, It would be a nice gesture, and we would have our name on the board for every more. We have set up a poll which can be found down the right hand side of our web site, members please have a vote.

OH NO - Leak in Kitchen
Jan 22, 2016, 8:09 pm


We found a leak from a burst pipe in the ceiling void above our kitchen on Thursday morning, ceiling is badly damaged will need to come down and be replaced, light fitting is broken and will need either replacing or repairing if at all possible, fluorescent light fitting back fixing has broken away from the fitting.

Believe it or not we only found the leak as we had roofers in repairing our ridge tiles on the changing room roof which the tea room/kitchen is part of as they were loose and raining in, the roofers were looking for a nice area to have their tea/lunch in.

If it not one thing it’s another.

A few jobs which could be part of our cricket force day.
