Sports Club future – comments invited

Villagers are invited to comment on the future of the Sports Club following news that the trustees may step down and hand over its operation to the Parish Council in accordance with their constitution.

The sports ground is at the top of Moor Lane and in recent years has been used for occasional cricket matches and football practice by Collingham Juniors AFC.

Collingham has enquired about a long lease for the ground to enable them to seek grants for drainage work. A second football club has made enquiries and the Parish Council hopes cricket fixtures can continue.

The Parish Council is inviting comments from any villager on any aspect of the Sports Club usage which should be emailed to
