Local MP welcomes Frampton Rugby Club to Parliament

The President of Frampton Cotterell Rugby Club, Nick Knight, and founder member of the Club, Barry Rowsell, were invited to Parliament by their local MP Luke Hall, to celebrate the club’s valued work in our community.

Nick and Barry enjoyed two tickets to Prime Ministers’ Questions, before joining Luke for a drink and catch up on the famous riverside terrace bar.

Luke said, “It was a great pleasure to welcome Nick and Barry to Westminster. Frampton Rugby Club is a historic and important local club in South Gloucestershire, and I am incredibly grateful for all the great work they do in the community.”

The local MP added, “I wish everyone involved with the club the very best of luck for next season, and am really looking forward to attending as many games as possible, as Frampton Cotterell RFC continues to do us proud”.

Luke met the club’s representatives to discuss the club’s exciting ambitions and plans, and offered any support the club may need.

Founded in 1973, Frampton Cotterell Rugby Club has played an important role in the local community, with talented teams entertaining their supporters, whilst a loyal membership has continued to host popular events in the village. The clubs also has an enduring relationship with French club Parisis RFC.

The club’s visit to Westminster coincided this month with the announcement from Conservative run South Gloucestershire Council, which revealed that there will be a staggering investment in local sports clubs and community groups across the region.
