Bedford Blues Community are pleased to announce a new partner for the remaining school holiday rugby camps this season in Heroic Pubs who run pubs in Houghton Conquest and Aspley Guise.

The Blues Community Department, only started in August 2016, has gone from strength to strength in a short period under Head of Community, Ben Gulliver, and is due to launch a Christmas rugby camp shortly. Check the website for details.

Heroic Pubs, who recently opened The Knife and Cleaver in Houghton Conquest and The Anchor in Aspley Guise, will feature on all community camp branding as well as becoming match sponsors for the Bedford Blues first team game against Doncaster Knights in January.

Each of their establishments is unique in character and style, but with the same consistent standards of excellence. The team bring a fresh approach to the dining experience and meeting the synergy of Blues Community, they are committed to each of their communities and wish you to feel part of the family.

Commenting on the partnership, Gulliver said: “I’m delighted that Jonathan and the team at Heroic are supporting our community camps moving forward, they share the same values as us and their involvement will certainly help our growth. We will be looking to work closely with them and thank them for the sponsorship of the Christmas camp.”

Jonathan Taylor, Group Operations Director of Heroic & Epic Pubs, added: “We are delighted to be part of the Blues Community project and will support this fantastic programme. We are currently working with the Club on initiatives around healthy eating and nutrition for children. As a company, we feel it is very important to give back to the community, to be involved with an organisation who feel the same and to be able to work together to help children achieve their goals.”
