Join Up Your Pets poster web

Now you can sign up your pets as Keep The Jets Flying members

Lion and Pugsley pictured above, two Henson Park regulars in recent rugby league seasons, have already joined the Keep The Jets Flying recruitment drive and are both looking forward to seeing the Jets back at Henson Park in 2021.

When you sign up your own furry friend or friends for a Keep The Jets Flying membership, we’ll run a photo of your pet in the regularly-issued Newtown Jets email newsletter.

Big or small, every dollar counts as we maintain the struggle to keep the Newtown Jets alive as a rugby league club.

And please continue to spread the word and encourage your family members, friends, work colleagues and neighbours to get on board and join our campaign.
