Residents joined members and friends of of the East London Rugby Club to give their clubhouse a makeover .

It will benefit those who play rugby and use the club as a community hub.

The clean-up at the Memorial Ground headquarters in Holland Road, West Ham, was part of the NatWest RugbyForce Weekend, which helps clubs like East London deliver improvements. The club received £500 from the programme to help out.

Around 50 people took part in tasks that included chopping down trees and hedges, sprucing up the car park and changing rooms and other basic DIY repairs.

Rob Herbert, club captain, said: “We thank NatWest RugbyForce for their donation, which has helped us improve the quality of the rugby experience for users and visitors. Some basic DIY has really changed the first impression guests and newcomers have of us.
