No dogs allowed.
The playing pitches at Midsomer Norton RFC and surrounding grassy areas are played on by a large number of children and adults each week. Rugby is a sport where players are often in contact with ground and mud, we cannot accept any risk of infection from dog faeces, even the small amount left by those responsible owners who clean up after their dogs.
As such, all dogs are banned except, Guide Dogs, from the Norton Down playing fields and clubhouse.
This policy will be rigorously enforced.
Midsomer Norton RFC is close to many countryside walks. If you are visiting the club with a dog, we suggest you exercise your dog elsewhere before the game, and let it rest in the car during the game, providing adequate ventilation and water.
