Following the EGM earlier this month, we have met with GHA Rugby Club with a view to our membership moving to the GHA Braidholm Road site from our current base at Giffnock North Amateur Football Club.
Discussions have moved on and a meeting was held within the GHA clubhouse on 20 March and following a lengthy discussion we signed an agreement which permits us to utilise the GHA facilities and which also provides our members with restricted membership of GHA, for an agreed fee.
The senior road running group will be able to meet at GHA Braidholm road on Thursday nights and will have access to both a male and female dressing room and will be welcome to use the bar area etc. after their sessions. We will also gain access to meeting rooms and will be allocated storage space under the stand for equipment. This is effective from 30th March 2017 however the plan would be for the seniors to start training out of GHA on the 6 April.
The Under 11 group which currently trains on the blaze pitch at the football club will now train at Hutchesons Grammar school on Thursday evenings effective from 30 March..
This agreement has been carefully discussed between the GHA RFC Board and the GNAAC Committee and is in line with the discussions that took place at our EGM on the 8 March 2017
Finally, during our meetings with GHA, the possibility of a joint development of their facility was discussed which would include a 3G pitch with the addition of a 400m running track on their grounds – something which would suit both club’s needs. All members will be kept fully informed of any developments and your input will be greatly appreciated.
