At Stepping Stones RU Limited we are proud to be associated with Cinderford RFU and have for several years used their facilities to host our training events. We are able to choose between the large function lounge to the smaller Beavis ;ounge. Carole and the teram always make our staff welcome and are very flexible and attentive to our needs. As the majority of our staff come from the Forest area they feel more relaxed in familiar surroundings.

I love the atmosphere watching a game at Cinderford and having a drink in the club afterwards, no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
