New Sports and Recreation Facilities

The Sports and Recreation Trust was established to improve the sports and recreation facilities in the village for the use of the whole community.  We have a number of ways of doings this:

  1. The development of major projects to provide new facilities in the village.
  2. The development of minor projects to repair or improve existing facilities.
  3. The granting of funds to other organisations or individuals in the village to help them provide improved facilities or activities.  How to apply for a grant.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?

The Future Projects sub Committee is responsible for the identification of future sports and recreation needs in the community and producing a rolling Five Year Strategy. The Trust decides which of these projects to prioritise and produces an Adopted Project Plan, which identifies the projects that the Trust will progress to completion.

The Future Projects sub Committee then creates a project team who scopes these adopted projects, develops the specifications to enable a competition to be held to select contractors, raises the necessary funds and then acts as the Trust project management for implementation.

WHAT ARE WE PLANNING TO DO?

The Trust has three projects in the pipeline for 2024:

  • The major project is the replacement of the skateboard park with a modern poured concrete facility.
  • The repair/replacement of the changing room floors in the pavilion
  • The replacement and extension of the safety netting around Oak Tree House and extended along the north side of the training area.

WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED IN THE PAST?

The Sports and Recreation Trust is proud of what has achieved over the years to improve the sports and recreation facilities in the community and, since 2011, has raised over £255,000.00 for these projects.

The highlight of these achievements was the Adventure Play Area and Outdoor Gym Equipment in 2019, which cost over £160,000.00. Click here for more details.
