Tributes to HRUFC Members
Harlow Rugby Club has selected the following estate names in memory of their outstanding contribution to the club. It is acknowledged that without the determination and vision of its members past and present, the project team, along with countless volunteers over the clubs 52 years history, it would not have been able to have secured their new home at Latton Farm.
The freehold of Rams Gorse was sold to Harlow Rugby Club on the 10th June, 1981, the Trustees at the time of sale where Ronald Ernest Bracewell, Ian Malcolm Gallantree, Frances Ross Loveday and Michael James Ryland.
The club’s move from Rams Gorse will enable the delivery of 127 much needed new homes, 34% of which will be social housing as well as an investment of £5.5m by its trustees in the new club house and grounds. Every member, player, parent, trustee and committee member connected with the club can be rightly proud of their achievements.
Harlow Rugby club members have past and present been surrounded by people who share a vision and a passion around one common purpose of improving the lives of the community they live in.
Together, they have shown that through hard work and determination, anything is possible.
