Dawsons Estate Agents are to continue their longstanding sponsorship of the ever-popular Cracker 7s, which takes place during a three-day festival of rugby over the August Bank Holiday weekend in Underhill Park, Mumbles.
And organiser Martin Rodwell, chairman of Mumbles RFC, has praised Dawsons’ loyal sponsorship of one of Mumbles’ best known social events.
“It’s only because of Dawsons’ continued support over nearly two decades that the Cracker 7s is still able to exist,” said Martin.
“The Cracker 7s has become an integral part of the Mumbles social fabric in its 27 years and we are really grateful for Dawsons’ sponsorship and input.”
Partner at Dawsons, James Dawson said: “It has been a pleasure to be associated with the Cracker 7s both as a sponsor and someone who played in the event in my younger years.
“It has been firmly established as one of the village’s main social events in the calendar along with such things as the Mumbles Raft Race.”
This year the event has special significance as the weekend of events begins on Friday (6.30pm) with a game in memory of Jonathan Thomas, who lost his life in tragic circumstances last November, between a Mumbles XV and a Jon Thomas Invitation XV.
The actual Cracker 7s tournament begins at noon on Sunday with a £300 prize on offer for the winners. That is after a junior and mini’s tournament and family fun day on Saturday.
There will be a barbeque and beer tent at Underhill and a live music playing after the rugby.
