HEIGHT RESTRICTOR INSTALLED AT CLUB ENTRANCE

Height Restrictor

 

To advise all Members and bona fide guests to the Club, a Height Restrictor has now been installed at the Club Entrance as a deterrent for any unwanted visitors from attending the Club and Ground.

It has a two metre clearance, so should not affect the majority of vehicles.

The Height Restrictor can be unlocked and swung open onto a back post that has also been installed.

Visit from The Engine

Following the new kit sponsor partnership with the Engine Inn, the club were pleased to welcome, landlord, Ted to our First XI win on Saturday.

Chairman Geoff Edmunds said “We are pleased to be working with Ted and his team, and to have a strong partnership with a community driven pub for Kenilworth, and our community driven club. It was nice for Ted to enjoy our hospitality, when we often enjoy his at The Engine.”

The Engine Inn (Mill End, Kenilworth) is a local pub proud to support the Kenilworth Community, sponsoring local sports teams and organising many community events throughout the year. So much so that they were recently awarded “Community Pub of the Year 2019” from Star Pubs and Bars. The club are delighted to be working with them and thankful to The Engine for their continued support, especially through these unprecedented times.

The Engine won “Community Pub of the Year 2019” from Star Pubs and Bars

Members that haven’t yet purchased new kit can do so direct from NXT Sports here.
