TAVISTOCK Rugby Club are celebrating after winning a Calor Rural Community Fund grant.

The west Devon club have been awarded £2,500 to put towards creating private referees’ showers at their Sandy Park ground.

Applicants for Calor Rural Community Fund grants were encouraged to rally votes from their supporters. Projects with the highest number of votes in each funding category went through to the finals and a panel of impartial judges scores their applications.

Tavistock managed to earn nearly 3,000 votes to go through the finals.

Their application described how important it was under safeguarding regulations to have private showering for referees. They also highlighted how many people in their local community used the club and the support they had from them for the project.
