Lions Test Match - An Apology

It was fantastic to see so many people in the Clubhouse last Saturday for the second test match between New Zealand and the British and Irish Lions. It was a great result and it’s fair to say we’re all very much looking forward to the decider this weekend.

Clearly, we were overwhelmed by the number of people in attendance and hadn’t anticipated this. As such, we were overstretched and struggled to cope with the demand. Everyone at 81 Events and the Management Committee would like to apologise to everyone in attendance that your experience wasn’t one that you’ve come to expect from a Henley RFC Event and can assure you that this won’t happen again.  

We’ve certainly taken on board all of the comments received and learnt from this experience. So please come down to the Clubhouse this Saturday to watch the decider, the bar will be open serving beer, bacon and sausage baps will be available and the sound system will have been fixed. It should be a fantastic occasion and we very much look forward to seeing you there and hopefully cheering on a Lions series win!

In other Club news, please see below the latest pictures of the new Changing Rooms and Club Shop. We’re delighted with the progress being made and will keep you updated over the rest of the Summer with further developments.  

Best Wishes,

Chris Nixon

Henley RFC Chairman
