Westcliff RFC – EGM

The Westcliff RFC EGM took place on 27th January, at which Nigel Roskams gave an update to those present on changes required for us to be compliant with the forthcoming changes in CASC legislation. As part of the changes, at this meeting the members present agreed to change the club’s Articles of Association, amending the clause relating to family memberships which now reads as follows:-

 Youth Family Membership

 i)        Includes a Youth player. Subsequent Youth players within the same immediate family and with the same parent(s)/ guardian(s) may be included within the same Membership upon payment of the prescribed subscription from time to time specified. All Members in this class must be usually resident at the same address with the exception of those Youth players who may be separately resident in order to undertake educational studies.

ii)       The player’s parent(s)/guardian(s) may also be members under the same membership provided that they are participating members as defined by HMRC under The Community Amateur Sports Clubs Regulations 2015 as amended from time to time.

 If you have any questions about this change please contact the Hon Secretary, Marcus Peters, at marcusstpeters@me.com.

Planning Application




Myself , Chris Bard , Rick Compton and Bob Smith attended a meeting at the Civic Centre this week ,  and as previously advised the club continues to be engaged with Southend on Sea Borough and Rochford District Councils as well as their development partner Henry Boot in relation to the long proposed relocation of the club as part of a wider Business Park development. As has been anticipated and previously indicated progress has been made slowly but recently it has been steadier and it is now likely to accelerate. At present the aim is to relocate the club to the new site by September 2017 and planning applications for the Business Park and infrastructure and separately for the club  ,  have now been recently submitted.
To facilitate this timetable, construction will need to commence around Easter 2016. Of significant concern in this regard is the impact on the furthermost pitches and the club is currently seeking to discuss and understand how its operation will be impacted next season by necessary works and how any disruption would be mitigated. The club is fully engaged in seeking to extend and improve its tenure and future sustainability and discussions are being progressed keenly in this regard. In all these matters the club continues to consult and liaise with the Rugby Football Union and the resources at its disposal as well as Sport England. Additionally and where appropriate the club will obtain professional advice and services to protect and advance its interests.
It is likely that the club will be in a position soon to present more substantive details for members to review and consider. In the meantime it remains through both the executive committee and the dedicated subcommittee eager to respond to any questions you may have that it is able to address, and to receive any constructive comments or suggestions from the membership.
As ever  , the Exec Committee would like to thank Chris , Rick and Bob for their continuing work in making sure that the interests of Westcliff RFC are paramount .
