Members will be aware from the recent post on the Club website, of the resignation by Roger Whyle from the position of Chairman of the Club.

Initially can I take this opportunity to reassure all club members that the Club Management Committee is, and will continue to be, ensuring that the business of running the Club, remains in hand by this very committed group of volunteers. Both in terms of immediate day to day issues and also putting in place a longer term structure and to fill any current vacancies.

I would equally like to take the opportunity to thank Roger on behalf of all, for the enthusiasm, passion and innovation he has brought during his stint in the chair. It’s never an easy role to perform and in these particularly challenging times I am sure that a lot of the considerable progress he has made over the year will be of significant benefit to the club as it moves forward into its next decade and beyond, how and wherever that might be.

Wimborne RFC like many other organisations, groups and clubs is totally reliant on its volunteers to keep the Club going forward whether things are in full swing or at this somewhat unusual out of season period in which we find ourselves this year but when there still remains much to do, to keep the club steady.

As always we need more volunteers to step forward and take on various roles to ensure Wimborne RFC continues to flourish as the club we are all proud to be associated with. Alongside this we also need to ensure that we all remember that volunteers is just all we are, and looking to do our best for the greater good of the Wimborne club.

These are strange times we are currently living through and at this point we still do not know when rugby will restart or indeed what the Community game will exactly look like when we do get going again. 

Looking ahead therefore and due to the restrictions brought about by the pandemic, it has been necessary to delay the Annual General Meeting on more than one occasion so far to its current proposed and published date of 5th August when it is hoped the meeting should now be able to proceed, albeit more than likely on a virtual basis.

Once again many thanks to Roger and Best Regards to All continuing to be Safe and Alert.
