[blockquote]Fantastic news!![/blockquote]
The location for the Under 9’s and 11’s 2016 tour has been booked! If last year is anything to go by this will be a great success, and what a way to end the season following our own LIARFC mini festival on April 24th 2016…

[quote_left]Come and join us at at Cheddar Wood Resort & Spa in Cheddar, Somerset for the bank holiday weekend of 29th April to 2nd May 2016 for a weekend of fun, relaxation, and of course more rugby!![/quote_left]

This is a 3 night tour package this year, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. The park is approx 2 hrs 45 mins from Sunbury, 149 miles.

The Under 9’s and 11’s will attend a festival on Saturday April 30th at Hornets RFC. This will be similar to the festivals we play throughout the year with other visiting teams, some Welsh teams are also touring there this year. We have a short-list of clubs to choose from for our Sunday fixture, this will be confirmed shortly.

The accommodation is of a very good standard and the park will virtually be booked out by us if we have the same numbers as last years tour. The facilities on site are wide ranging with plenty of activities to occupy everyone. We will make sure the Rugby opportunities are equally exciting! The privacy of the site will also allow for ample opportunity to come together in the evenings, “Tour together” and celebrate the rugby earlier in the day.

The accommodation is mostly 2 bed (sleeps 4) and 3 bed (sleeps 6) holiday homes for the 3 nights. This is for the first 29 bookings confirmed as this the allocation I have been allowed to reserve pre-deposit payment. We have a small fee to pay for entry into the Hornets festival and a separate catering option will be put together for our group once we have finalised timings for the Rugby events both Saturday and Sunday. I hope to offer a Friday night, Saturday evening and Sunday roast group option at per head charge as we did last year. Details and costing to follow this will be an extra. Note travel cots are available for hire if you are a family with 3 children, one of which is a baby/small toddler. Basically the charge is per unit and how they are occupied is to a degree up to the customer (within reason of course !!).

Approx costings for 3 Nights accommodation in the 2&3 bedroom holiday homes reserved + festival entry:
A 2 bed unit will be approx £410.
A 3 bed unit will be approx £470.
The 3 bed units may well encourage some families to share with another family.

In the first instance I need to get an interest list together asap to hold onto this accommodation. We also need to get a feel for numbers of players per age group to know the numbers of teams to enter into the Saturday Hornets festival as we pay an entry fee per team. To reserve your spot on the Tour , I need a confirmation and a deposit of just £25 per family. I would really appreciate this deposit by Friday this week , October 30th. However if you are certain you wish to join the tour but need a little more time to pay the deposit please do let me know this. The deposit will be non refundable.

Please send me an email confirming your place and deposit payment.

Here’s to another great tour everyone, the more the merrier!!
