Restricted Weekday Access to Belmont left bank via Belvedere Lane.

Thursday 26th October 2023.

The Committee of the Hereford Rugby Football Club have decided to try and improve security at the Rugby Club by restricting access by motor vehicles to Belvedere Lane during the period Monday to Friday. They have installed a barrier with a combination lock across the track close to the entrance to the Cathedral School playing field. The new security measures will come into effect on November 1st, 2023.
The only way H&DAA members will be able to access this area during this time is to take out an Associate membership with the Rugby Club at a cost of £35.00 per year. This will allow them access and also the use of the Rugby Club facilities. Members must park on the grassed area behind the Rugby Club close to the embankment and not on the Rugby Club car park which may be locked anyway.

Members can obtain this membership by ringing Vicky Cole (Rugby Club Ops. Manager) on 07923 484406.
She will take payment and send the applicant a sticker for their vehicle windscreen.
The area will be patrolled by a private security company and if a vehicle is not displaying a sticker, then the vehicle will be clamped. The new measures will be in effect Monday to Friday, 24 hours a day. The permit covers access to Belvedere Lane and the Rugby Club Monday to Friday only. There is no agreement in place for any individual H&DAA member or Associate permit holder to park anywhere beyond the barrier outside of the above times and anyone doing so runs the risk of being clamped. Access to Belvedere Lane and the Rugby Club on a Sunday for matches organised by or on behalf of H&DAA will not be affected.
The Association has a good relationship with the Rugby Club and has had regular meetings with them to try and reach a solution that is acceptable to both sides, but ultimately it is their land, and they decide how things will be run. Please do not abuse this new facility in any way and if you come across any problems, please report them immediately to the H&DAA committee who will seek to resolve them with the Rugby Club.
