This year’s programme will be based at a venue in Wiltshire and is aimed at Wiltshire clubs but the programme is open to anyone from Dorset who is willing to travel. As in previous years D&WRFU plans to invest heavily in its Leadership Programme but up to £100 contribution by the sponsoring club towards the overall expenditure for this programme is likely. Clubs are invited to register an interest for suitable candidates to John Constable at at the earliest opportunity.
