Rovers and the community
We have always striven to be part of the local community and are keen to help if we can. Our clubhouse when opened in 1996 allowed for greater opportunities to do so. At present:
- Our facilities are used Monday to Friday as a disability drop in centre run by the States of Guernsey.
- Sport is played year round be that by teams for football, cricket and touch rugby as well as archery taking place on their dedicated range.
- We host and maintain a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).
- We regularly host functions/fund raising events such as quizzes or race nights for local charities or groups.
- Our thriving and extensive membership includes many of our neighbours.
- We act as the start and finish for the World Aid Walk.
- The 1143m nature trail that surrounds our site is a popular route for a spot of exercise whilst taking in the wildlife/scenery.
- Over 500 hundred trees have been planted since the new clubhouse opened in 1996. We have space to plant more.
- We are on a main bus route (no 41) and encourage cycling with the provision of dedicated cycling racks.
- We host regular meetings for the Guernsey Caravan Club, North Show Committee, local residents association, the GFA etc.
- A publicly accessible clothing recycling bank can be found in our car park which is emptied weekly.
- Our minis football section operate a kit/boot swapping scheme to ensure as much as possible gets recycled. All old footballs are donated to a local dog hotel.
- All food waste, bottles, cans and cardboard is sent for recycling each week.
- We host the main sewage pumping station for Port Soif lane!
