Way back in November when fireworks were flashing and banging at the Venue, Oswestry Rugby Club, at very short notice helped the show go on by putting their flood lights on and freeing up the parking area outside. Jonathan Jones, who organised the event on behalf of Borderland Rotary Club said, “Everything was such a rush as we had to relocate the firework display to the Venue with the help of Manic Events, and the Rugby Club couldn’t have been more helpful so it gives me great pleasure to donate some money to the Club”.

Although the Oswestry Rugby Club in its current form was set up in 1976 there has been rugby played in the area since the turn of the last century in 1900 – and long may it continue.

Jonathan continued, “The Firework display has always been primarily a community event and the money that is left after all the costs are met is just a bonus and it’s great to be able to share it with local organisations”.
