14 Our new home

15 The challenge of numbers, growth & HSE Clubhouse, built 1976 for: 2 x Cricket XIs 2 x Men’s rugby XVs 100 members Few child welfare, HSE or legal constraints Today, based on growth in late 90s: 2 x League cricket XIs 2 x Social cricket XIs Mini cricket 8 – 15 yrs 4 x Men’s rugby XVs 1 x Women’s rugby XVs U13, U15, U18 Junior Girls 575 Mini/Junior rugby players 5 – 19 yrs 40 Touch Rugby players 2500+ members Child welfare, HSE and liability endemic and far reaching

16 What members said – consistently! Club survey 2013 Delivery & club experience – excellent/very good Facilities - poor/very poor “The club’s facilities are totally inadequate and at odds with the success of the club on the field and in the community. I am amazed that the club manages to function at all given it’s current state”

17 Our vision Safe and effective facility for current members – >2500 people Increase participation via Touch rugby, Junior Girls, Mini/Jnr Cricket, MiniStars Increased membership use for socials – a true community club Community facility for other park sports users, schools, surrounding area Improved facilities for girls/ladies Compliance with DDA, child welfare and liability requirements Remove an inadequate eyesore & replace it with a facility to be proud of

18 Original plans December 2006 Approved by RPA Rejected by LBRUT – tree damage

19 The plans 2009 – 2012 Increased social area Extended bar, new kitchen 6 changing rooms with segregation – Sport England/RFU/RFF compliant Refs room, current changing area untouched Phased build to allow continuing operations

20 The challenges and hurdles Complexity of piling/levels/services/tree protection = extensive conditions in Planning approval Expensive to build – grant funding required Tender process – club/local builders Q2 2012 – failed – M&E scary! Re-tender Q3 2012 with larger suppliers Planning expiry Oct 2012 RPA concerns re storage/progress – negotiating lever Planning extension 14 Dec 2012 Grants & RFU funding failing – Licence term/security of tenure, RFU non-compliant design, TTSC – TTCC/TRFC relationship confusing Redesign and 10 year Licence negotiations

21 The as built design Protects social area RFU compliant DDA compliant Ref/physio room Remodelled changing area

22 Hurdles No grant money unless RPA 10 Year Licence incl Barton’s Cottage Pitch Sport England grant awarded but complex process to claim RFU grant (£76k) and RFF loan (£100k) secured – needed 10 guarantors RFU/RFF money had to be spent by 30 June 2014 or would be lost 24-28 week build programme Phased building programme – continuing use through building/refurbishment phase Had to secure all funds before building start – 6 January 2014 Had to raise significant funds in 3 months to proceed

23 Building and funding 2010 Tender: £630,000 inc VAT Phases 1 & 2 only Pledged funds at 1/10/14: £371,000 Development fund = £150,000 Sport England Inspired Facilities = £45,000 net RFU Grant = £76,000 RFF Loan = £100,000 £259,000 to raise in 3 months

26 The Teddington RFC Investment Bond

27 The rugby club has been authorised to create up to thirty ‘2% Fixed Rate unsecured loan notes’ in multiples of £5,000, these we are referring to as Investment Bonds. The issuing of the bonds will allow the club to raise up to £150,000 immediately, which is to be used entirely for the clubhouse redevelopment project. The club will then pay back one bond each year plus 2% annual interest until all are redeemed. The current and forecast annual operating excess of Teddington RFC Ltd will allow the club to be able to comfortably pay back one bond per year. Your InvestmentThe Clubs Debt

28 Is a legally binding instrument between Teddington RFC Ltd (The Company) and each investment bond holder (The note holder) Each Bond costs £5,000 Up to 4 people may jointly hold one bond You can purchase & hold more than one bond The Bond is transferable The investment

29 What do I get for my investment? Security and a guaranteed return whilst helping the club reach its funding target 2% accrued interest per year (paid on the redemption of the bond) A transferable bond holders certificate Free social membership to Teddington RFC for the life of the bond Two Free 1 st XV match day lunches per season for the life of the bond Each bondholder(s) will have their name(s) inscribed on the Wall of Friends Commemorative merchandise Invitations to the official opening of the New Clubhouse Invitations to the annual bond repayment ballot social event

30 Redemption Each year one randomly picked bond will be repaid with interest The bond will be drawn at an annual repayment ballot You can redeem your bond at any time, with the discretion of the club or you can transfer it to a third party

31 Health warnings Longstop repayment date of 2045 No certainty of repayment in any given time period Limited redemption rights Seek your own tax and legal advice But you will be helping the club & earning a better interest rate than the banks today
