Travel directions for Clifton RFC's mini tournament 2 October 2011

Ok, here is the first of a number of posts about the tournament on Sunday.  First up is parking and travel and I would get there early to avoid as much hassle as possible.

5. Ground Arrangements / Parking
The tournament will take place at Clifton Rugby Club, Station Road, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol BS10 7TT. Directions included below

Parking at the ground is always a challenge on tournament days and you should advise all managers/ coaches / parents to arrive early. Car sharing is positively encouraged. Clifton Rugby Club does not guarantee any parking at the ground, and parking is solely on a first come first served basis. This applies to Clifton participants and visitors.

If you intend to arrive by coach please notify us as soon as possible. You will be directed where to park by marshals. This may or may not be within the Club’s grounds.

Generally the early arrivals will be parked the furthest distance away to ensure an efficient car parking operation.
Please do not park on the road as any cars may be liable to be booked / towed away by the Police.


In the interests of hygiene and safety NO DOGS are permitted on any part of the Club’s grounds. Please make parents aware of this rule.

Parents are welcome to bring picnics but NO INDEPENDENT BARBECUES, OPEN FIRES OR COOKING APPLIANCES are permitted on any part of the Club’s grounds.

I would ask you to make all your coaches aware of the above arrangements and would ask that if anyone wishes to make comment or has a concern with any of the arrangements to please contact me. I look forward to welcoming you to the 2011 Tournament and wish you all a successful and enjoyable day.
