Frampton Cotterell have safe-guarded their long term future by negotiating a 25-year lease with the village's community association.
The agreement means that the Gloucester Premier club now have sole use and control of the bar at Crossbow House on School Road, guaranteeing a revenue stream from the facility which finally becomes Frampton's official home with added security of tenure.
Frampton's club room at Crossbow will continue to be used by community association groups. And there are immediate plans for the rugby club and community association to work together on upgrading facilities, including replacing heating and electrical systems at a building which served as a school until 1969 before being transformed into a focal point for village activities.
Vice-chairman Nigel Smith said: "This is a real partnership with a shared ethos of working together with benefits for both the rugby club and the community association.
"With security of tenure, we are now able to apply for grants and funding, and the lease agreement also means that the community association have funds to maintain and improve the building, ensuring it continues to be an attractive home for groups in the village."
