Peninsula Fire Safety SW Ltd are proud to be a sponsor of Barnstaple Rugby Football Club for the 2022-2023 season.

Here at Peninsula Fire Safety we take corporate social responsibility seriously and try to have a positive impact where we can.  This is why we have chosen to sponsor Barnstaple Rugby Football Club (BRFC) for the 2022-2023 season.

BRFC is a club at the heart of the Barnstaple community.

Teams consist of the 1st Team (known as the Chiefs – the original Chiefs I might add!). Athletic (2nd team), Barnstaple Buccaneers, The Colts, the Women’s teams and a very strong Junior section.

Every weekend, games are played at the club, be it the 1st Team, Colts or teams from the Junior section.

Jonny Bowden, Junior Section Coaching Coordinator said “The Junior section has a very strong following with tag rugby for the younger ages and full 15 a side contact rugby from U14, with regular attendances upwards of 250.  Such high numbers show how strong the game is in the region”.  He added “we are really encouraged by the quality and strength of the junior age groups, it’s really exciting to see for the future of the game”.

Peninsula Fire Safety’s very own Operations Director Jon Limer is a Junior section volunteer and has been an assistant coach since 2014, now coaching the U15 team and adding more value with the joint sponsorship of training tops to encourage players to embrace the new tackle laws.

BRFC also has regular out of season events such as the very successful touch rugby tournament in May of this year, a real family event that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

On Friday evenings, there is the touch rugby social, an hour of touch rugby for all ages and abilities with a pint after to quench the thirst whilst watching a premiership game on the TV.  What could be better to wind down after a week at work!

Starting the 2022/23 season, the Chiefs are in the National League 2 West, along with some tough competitors, and currently running 14th in the table and hope to improve on this in the coming weeks.

Everyone here at Peninsula Fire Safety wish all the players, coaches and volunteers all the best for the 2022-2023 season.
