Around 100 people attended the Whangateau Reserve on September 23 to celebrate the opening of the Rodney Rams clubhouse. The build was required after the former clubhouse burned down in 2014 due to an electrical fault.
The official ribbon was cut by Caitlin Conning-Inkersole, grand-daughter of recently deceased former club president, Raymond Inkersole. The day consisted of a number of events, including a cricket match on the reserve.
The rebuild, which began in 2015, was funded through insurance, Foundation North, Raymond Inkersole, a Woodstock Facebook competition, the Rodney Local Board, DTB Construction, club members and sponsors.
