Surveyors assist Local Sports Club

Hornets Lights InstallationWiggins Lockett Thompson have lent a hand to Telford Hornets RFC in overseeing the application for permission to install new training lights at their Town Park ground.  The chartered surveying firm, who have been sponsors and supporter of the town Rugby club for many years, have secured permission following a successful grant application for the club.

Anthony Wiggins, director at Wiggins Lockett Thompson added

This is an amazing rugby club that offers first class training and sport to a great number of families in Telford from a 100% volunteer base.  The Hornets are, I believe, the largest private sports club in Telford and this has only been possible through hours and hours of dedication from its members and volunteers.  We are happy to offer advice and administrative support to such a great club and would urge others in the area to do likewise.  The new lighting will allow the club to coach more players on site during the winter hours and save the club from expending off site pitch hire and venue fees.
