In the Community
The Bildeston Crown supports a number of local projects, events and good causes. Here are just a few:
BILDESTON RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB
The Bildeston Crown supports its local football club.
As the 2011/12 season concluded, the Saturday team finished about half way up the Division 2 table in the SIL and the Sunday team much the same in the Treadfirst Sudbury League with respective Cup runs ending at the quarter final stages.
April 2012 – Congratulations Hadleigh RFC – promoted from Eastern Counties Two to Eastern Counties One!
Hadleigh Rugby Football Club, founded in 1984, is a Community Amateur Sports Club supporting the local communities by offering the chance to play rugby from the age of 6 years upwards. The club has a very strong Mini and Youth section were three of the older age groups recently travelled on a three day rugby tour to the West Country International Rugby Festival. The 1st XV were, this season, champions of Eastern Counties 2 league and are promoted to Eastern Counties 1 for next season. The club is a vibrant, friendly organisation that welcomes players and supporters of any ability.
The Bildeston Crown is a regular supporter of the annual Hadleigh Show, one of the oldest one-day Agricultural Shows in the Country! As in past years we have “exhibited” alongside our fellow members of the Hadleigh Chamber of Commerce or flipped burgers on behalf of a client. In 2012 we sponsored the Suffolk Horse Display
