Christmas Message 2016 from the Club Chair
Dear Grasshopper

As 2016 draws to a close, I just wanted to thank you all, whatever your role within our fantastic club, for your continued efforts throughout the year.

We continue to be successful across all sections, both in Rugby and Netball. Our girls, boys, men and women have done us proud on the pitch and on the court. Buy any club can only survive with a sound volunteer base and at Grasshoppers we are blessed in this respect. Whatever your role within the club, whether a player, coach, volunteer, parent, staff member or supporter, a big huge thank you to you all.

We received word last week that the Greater London Authority had approved our planning application for the move to the old Conquest Club. Work has already begun and will continue in earnest throughout next year and up until our move date in August 2018. The move will enable us to enjoy facilities that will be unmatched for a club at our level and the length of lease (99 years) will secure the future of Grasshoppers for generations to come. What will not change is the ethos of our club and our place within the community. What truly makes a club is its members and we will thrive with our fantastic people.

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas and the best possible 2017.

Kindest regards


Gary Cunningham
