Views From The Pavillion
We had great support at the recent Community Bonfire Party, it was widely enjoyed and we are pleased to say that we covered our outgoing costs and even made a small profit which we will use towards next year.
Having already re-cladded 1 side of the pavilion, the other 3 sides will be re-cladded on 21st June (weather permitting) and some of the front support posts (that are rotting) will be replaced. NOW COMPLETE AND LOOKS FANTASTIC!!
Thanks to a £9477 Big Lottery grant a Double Swing Bay (with swings for toddlers and older children) with a rubber mulch surface + a Spring Elephant (for toddlers) have been ordered from Playdale. Delivery and Installation is hoped to be around the end of June/ early July. ALSO INSTALLED AND LOOKS GREAT
Discussions are ongoing regarding the arrangement of some cricket matches this summer. The key challenge is to get a pitch prepared using the appropriate machinery (Cylinder mower and Roller). The target is to have our first match in July.
The committee have agreed to purchase a couple of Football goals to encourage youngsters to start playing football again on the playing field. Hopefully these will be acquired over the next few weeks.
50/50 Club - You may be aware that since 2011 the West Witton Playing Field Committee has run the 50:50 Club with the aim of raising funds for the improvement and upkeep of our community playing field, in particular the cutting of the grass.
The Committee have recently heightened the awareness of the 50:50 Club to help generate additional funds, including distributing flyers to those households that were not already in the club.
The Committee would like to thank existing members and those members who have recently applied. As a result of your generosity the membership has increased by more than 60% for which we are extremely grateful for your valuable and continued support. Not only does the increased membership provide additional funding it also increases the monthly cash prize!
