Dawsons Estate Agent is delighted to be continuing their longstanding sponsorship of the ever-popular Cracker Sevens at Mumbles RFC this year.

As always the three-day festival of rugby takes place over the Bank Holiday from August 25-27 in Underhill Park, Mumbles.

James Dawsons, a Partner at Dawsons, has been associated with the tournament for many years, having played in the event in his youth and as a sponsor.

“Being a player in the Cracker Sevens and to then go on to sponsor the event year on year is a privilege,” said James.

“The event is an annual must for my family and our business associates alike, and is a thoroughly enjoyable event come rain or shine.”
