£135,000 Boost for Chinnor RFC

Rugby 1

Following a presentation by the Rugby Club in 2013 and approval of the terms of a Community Loan in July 2014, the Town Council has agreed to provide a loan of £135,000 to the Club for major redevelopment work.

Chinnor Rugby Club, which was formed in 1963, has set out plans to dramatically improve the club’s facilities, including a new 200 seat grandstand, new changing rooms and a lift. The project is expected to cost in the region of £650,000 so the Club have been actively fundraising and have secured £100,000 from RFU, £100,000 from SODC and an additional application of £50,000 has been made to Sport England.

The first phase of the redevelopment is hoped to be finished in line with the Rugby World Cup that will take place later this year. Photo courtesy of Nick White

Tributes to Cllr Mike Welply


It is with deep sadness that Thame Town Council received the news that Cllr Mike Welply had passed away after a battle with cancer.
Mike led a full and varied life and after enrolling in the Royal Air Force, was posted all around the world, including the jungles of Malaya and the Middle Eastern country of Oman.  After thirty years in the service he became a civil servant at the Ministry of Defence and more recently a security consultant.  He was Master of The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals from 2004-05.
