Havant Rugby Club signs a sponsorship agreement with Lloyds Driver Training
Lloyds Driver Training is one of the fastest-growing independent driving schools across the South Coast and as part of its growth plans has been looking to increase its public profile locally.
Andy and Michelle have supported the club for many years. They both believe in supporting the local community and helping young people pass their driving test. With this sponsorship agreement, Lloyds Driver Training will be offering a special offer: all registered Havant Rugby Club Players can get their first lesson free; all Havant Rugby Club Supporters can get £10 off their first lesson by quoting ‘Lloyds10’ when booking.
Lloyds Driver Training delivers structured and unique driving lessons tailored to the requirements of individual learners. Whether for beginners, learned or even experienced, they have lessons and courses to suit all.
Andy Lloyd, Managing Director said “I am really looking forward to this new sponsorship deal and supporting the club players and local community. Driving lessons play a major part in people’s lives and we look forward to helping everyone with getting into cars across Hampshire.”
Havant RFC, 'Hav', was founded in April 1951 and came to Hooks Lane, Bedhampton, two years later. The clubhouse, which was built by members of the Club, was opened in 1955 by the Lady Mayoress of Portsmouth.
Ten years after its founding, HRFC was running 5 sides. In 1962 Colts were started and there were further extensions to the clubhouse. A new clubhouse was opened at the end of 1975 and in 1993 there were further extensions and the addition of an all-seater grandstand.
Early milestones in the Club's playing history were winning the Hampshire Cup for the first time in 1974/75 and then, in 1975/76, becoming the first Junior Club to go into the last 16 of the John Player Cup. HRFC has now won the Hampshire Cup 16 times, the last being in the season 2007-08.
