A couple from Newton Aycliffe have organised the first wedding fair for Bishop Auckland Rugby Union Club.

Dan Lewis and Donna Bell have managed the rugby club for over three years. Within this time they have overseen a modernisation programme, overhauling the clubs main function room and have reignited the club’s events and functions calendar.

This year, the ambitious pair will host the first wedding fair for the club in the hope of attracting local couples to take a look at what the affordable venue can offer.

Donna, events manager, said; ‘Our wedding bookings have exceeded previous years. We are becoming a modern, flexible and affordable local option for couples from not only Bishop Auckland and surrounding areas, but also Ferryhill and Newton Aycliffe. The fair is an opportunity for those planning their big day to see how our function room can look and how we can make use of our outside space. We have a number of local suppliers also lined up on the day to help with all those extra touches to make your day special.’

The event will take place on Saturday 3rd February at 11am – 4pm, visitors will receive a glass of prosecco and a welcome pack on arrival.
