Bright future for Wells Rugby Club after floodlights boost

Wells Rugby Club is looking forward to a bright future after receiving a grant towards floodlight improvements.

The Charter Way club has scored £1,000 from Persimmon Homes Severn Valley as part of our Community Champions scheme.

The current floodlights on the training pitch only illuminate a quarter of the area so the club is looking to raise around £7,500 to replace them with modern LED lights.

Club chairman John Owen said: “We’re thrilled to receive this backing from Persimmon Homes. We offer facilities for men, women, boys and girls from age six to 18 and currently have 275 members across all age groups.

“During the winter training can be difficult as the old floodlights only light up part of the pitch. New LED lights will enable all teams to share the training pitch while also reducing our electricity bill enormously. We’ve raised more than £3,000 so we’re well on our way to achieving our goal.”

Carly Spear, sales director at Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Wells Rugby Football Club. This is a really busy and well-supported club offering sporting opportunities to hundreds of people. We’re pleased to support a club in an area in which we are currently building."

We are currently building stunning new homes at Foxglove Heights on Portway.

A range of three and four-bedroom homes are available, with prices starting from £273,995.
