Bideford Rugby Club
The club was founded in 1926 with the assistance of Barnstaple RFC from a nucleus of Bideford players from that club. The last surviving founder member, Terence Bird died as recently as 1996. The first game was played near Victoria Park against a Barnstaple reserve side. A more permanent home was found at Bideford Sports Ground in 1929. The first clubhouse was completed in 1954 at a cost of £1,100 and was erected by voluntary labour, (the 'Hungry Thirties'', a national economic slump, and World War II, 1939 - 1945 were delaying factors). An offer was made by Bideford Town Council to move to the Trust's King Georges's Field, this was accepted in 1967 at a cost of £10,000. In the following years, extensions including a new dining room, kitchen and lounge bar were made at an additional cost of £3,500.
