We are very pleased to announce that following a bid to Sport England as part of their Community Asset Fund, we have successfully been awarded £60,000.
The funding will go towards the costs of refurbishing the astro pitch, which will take place in the summer.
The current pitch is approaching 15 years old and currently hosts a wide variety of community sports teams including hockey, football, rugby, and baseball, as well as all the children of Wellsway School. The astro is also used to host primary school festivals throughout the year as part of the School Sport Partnership.
Laura Gaiger, Community and Business Development Manager, said 'We are so pleased with the outcome of the funding bid. The astro is heavily used all day everyday by so many members of the local community; we are really pleased that we will be able to keep on providing a fantastic facility to so many. A huge thank you to Sport England for supporting this project.'
A big thank you also to Keynsham Hockey Club for their support with the funding bid, we look forward to working closely with them for years to come.
