Sat 29th Feb

Instonians RFC 'Here Come The Girls' ladies day pre match lunch on Sat 29th Feb.

A little something for the ladies, by the ladies. 

Further to Pams Gillies presentation to the Rugby Committee 2 weeks ago, the Ladies Day pre match lunch is now live and selling tickets through the website.

As you will recall from previous discussions and in keeping with our newly agreed values, this initial event has been designed to encourage ladies to come along to the club, be more involved and feel comfortable and included.

As such, it would be much appreciated if you could encourage your wives, partners or girlfriends to come along to the lunch and help make the event a success.

All details of the event can be found at the following link. Tickets are only available to buy through the web site. https://www.seahorsesminirugby.co.uk/product/here-come-the-girls/

Many thanks
