Lichfield RUFC is appealing for people to help refurbish one of its clubhouse rooms.

The Cooke Fields club hopes to renovate the Boley Lounge with a new bar and windows to give a “great view over the first team pitch”.

The club say the work would allow it to create a new revenue stream by enabling two function rooms to operate at once.

Chairman Paul Massey said:

“The Boley Lounge will be more rugby-orientated than the downstairs bar, displaying all the international shirts, photos and other rugby memorabilia that we have accumulated over our almost 150 year history.”

The club is appealing for help to ensure the refurbishment is carried out.

Mr Massey added:

“Of course, this work comes at a cost. While we are extremely grateful for a few major sponsors who have generously agreed to cover the costs of supplying and fitting the new bar, the dormers and scaffolding work, there are a number of other items that we still need to source and fund.

“If anyone can help personally – with skills or financial support – or if they have contacts who can source the help we need at a reasonable or event no cost, we’d love to hear from them.”
