NORTHWICH'S efforts for the community have not escaped the notice of head office!
The English RFU was so impressed with their commitment to the community it invited a delegation to Twickenham for the Middlesex Sevens where they were presented with an engraved plaque.
The award now adorns Northwich's own Moss Farm base.
Only nine Year of the Volunteer plaques were presented.
Northwich vice-chairman Phil Clarke said: 'We're delighted. We are very much community orientated and all the work is done by volunteers. This award is a welcome pat on the back for all people at Northwich who do an enormous amount of work.'
In recent seasons Northwich have coached in schools, run touch rugby competitions and launched a girls' section while maintaining the annual festival, junior coaching and teams at all levels.
