How this cause brings people in the community together
The demand for good pitches is high. Participation often falls when games get called off. This project aims to build on what we have already achieved, to provide quality facilities for the residents of Barrow Island and surrounding areas. To create an extra pitch will allow us to meet the demand as we frequently have to turn clubs away. We also could hold a bigger community gala if we develop.
