VOLUNTEERS have been throwing their weight around to give a rugby clubhouse a summer spruce up.
About 30 people gave up their time last weekend to clean and redecorate Stevenage Town Rugby Club’s clubhouse in North Road.
Armed with paintbrushes and strimmers, volunteers were able to give the area a new lease of life thanks to grant from the Natwest Rugbyforce project.
Stevenage businesses W J Rowe and Fancy Cakes by Linda, as well as Hungarian chef the Great Zolton, also donated free food to keep everyone well fed.
Gareth Bowden, mini/youth chairman at the rugby club, said: “I’d liike to say a massive thank you to all that took the time to come to the rugby club to help with the massive task of cleaning up. As you all know it took great grit and determination to get so much done in such a short period of time but as you did a fantastic job.
