We are delighted to announce that planning has been approved and an order placed for a 100 seater stand to be put in hereat Veritas Park. This has been project managed by long term TRFC Supporter Steve Collard, who has also very kindly funded the build through his company ‘Commsplus Equipment finance’ assisted by a generous donation from an anonymous supporter.
Taunton Fabrications have also heavily been involved with the project by taking down the old filming tower and old stand, they will be re-installing the filming tower once the new stand is in. A huge thanks go to Jason Rigby and his team at Taunton Fabrications.
EA Construction (SW) Ltd of Wells will be preparing the groundworks for the new stand including the trenching for the cables etc. T&C Electrical Contractors Ltd, and Bytes-Digital Ltd, will be supplying the electric and fibre cable respectively including the final connections. Thanks also go to Collier Planning of Taunton who put the planning application together.
The Stadium is being manufactured, delivered, and erected by Stadium Solutions Ltd of Brighton. The benefit to this modular design of the stand means we are able to add further seating In years to come as the attendances continue to grow here on matchdays.
With the Titans starting their journey in National One last season and going well in their debut season this new stand feltlike an important way to continue the development of Taunton RFC. With larger crowds expected for the new season this will give more people the opportunity to view the game from the comfort of a seat.
This whole project shows further ambition for Taunton RFC and shows that the club is continuing to develop and move forward. We hope that this stand will be in place for our 1st league game on the 10th September when we take on Plymouth Albion here at Veritas Park.
TRFC would like to say a huge thank you for everyone involved with this project. We look forward to welcoming everyone who has made this possible to join us for a matchday and a well earnt drink during the 2022/23 season.
