The Club is very pleased to announce that Viridor Credits has awarded BWCC a grant of £30,000 from the Landfill Communities Fund. Part of the tax paid by landfill operators is made available to support community projects, provided that the recipient body is located within 10 miles of a landfill site.
The money will be used to buy much needed replacement equipment:
- A 3-unit trailed gang mower
- A 3ft Auto-Roller
- A new artificial strip for the playing area
- New netting for the practice nets
- 2 mesh sightscreens
The Club’s present maintenance equipment was getting very tired and unreliable, so the opportunity to replace the key items will be an enormous help – and relief – for those who work so tirelessly to keep the ground in good condition. A very big thank you to Viridor for being willing to fund the purchase of items which some of the Sports funding bodies are reluctant to support.
We hope to have all the new items in place by April.
