Following discussions at this years MAFPRFC AGM it was agreed that the annual financial commitment for access to the leases at the Stonehaven Community All Weather Sports Facility (SCAWSF) in Mineralwell Park could not be justified in the current financial environment the Club is operating in.
I can now confirm that the Committee have written to the SCAWSF Management Group confirming the intention to surrendered all MAFPRFC bookings at the All Weather Pitch going forward.
The Section Coordinators have been working with various other parties and venues to ensure that suitable midweek training is available for their groups when the darker nights between the end of the Tattie Holidays and the beginning of the Easter Holidays come round.
This action will save the club in the region of £10k per annum and the Committee are hoping to use these savings to invest in portable floodlighting for the Redcloak training areas in due course.
The Committee appreciate your support in making these difficult decisions to ensure the prosperity of the Club moving forward.
Yours in rugby
