Rugby club would welcome a move
I agree with Richard Munday’s observation (KWN letters last week) that increasing the population of Kenilworth by the amount he is suggesting, if this can be relied on, is rather extreme. He also points out that Kenilworth Rugby Club and Wardens Cricket Club would be forced to move onto precious farming land to facilitate the outlined plans.
As a member of KRFC I am in no position to comment for the Wardens but I would suggest they would want to stay where they are.
Kenilworth RFC cannot wait to get away from Mr Munday, whose property backs onto the first XV pitch. After several years of complaints about every aspect of club activities, taking petitions to all of the neighbours and finally getting a noise abatement notice served, which extends forever and can result in the loss of sale of alcohol licence, he has had a change of mind.
He now wants the rugby club to stay to maintain his view across the fields and down to a pretty wood.
I have sympathy for this nimby but what you sow you will reap and Kenilworth Rugby Club will support the council’s plans with gusto, as they will be removed from neighbours like Mr Munday and allowed to return to a status quo, albeit elsewhere after 65 years tenure.
Before Kenilworth fights tooth and nail I would suggest they look at who and what they are fighting for. - M.J. Wheatley, John O’Gaunt Road, Kenilworth.
