The festival season is well under way with NEC Harlequins' Associate Clubs. Both Upminster and Windsor hosted very succesful festivals at the weekend. Roy Winters has on hand to hand the prizes out at Windsor. Simon Bates of Windsor RFC Junior section said that Roy was "an excellent ambassador for Quins and made a great contribution to the success of the day, both by talking to young players and their parents as well as presenting the medals to the Under 13s and Under 14s Winners and Runners Up"
Jon Dawson made the journey across London to Upminster, to be on hand to award prizes to all runners up and winning teams from under7 to under 12. Upminster RFC will be visiting The Stoop for the Quins home games against Gloucester and Northampton.
