Huge funding bid success for "The Park"

Cash-strapped Frampton Cotterell Parish Council has been awarded more than £238,000 funding to improve drainage and pitch conditions at ‘The Park’ in School Road.

The money was provided by Barratt Homes contribution from ‘The Meads’ development to improve local sports facilities. The pitches at The Park used by Frampton Cotterell Rugby and Cricket Clubs and Frampton Rangers Football Club have suffered from flooding and poor grass quality due to lack of an effective drainage system for many years – this has caused lots of disappointing match cancellations each season.

Specialist consultants prepared a report for the Parish Council recommending the drainage system and soil/grassing techniques to be used to minimise the risk of flooding and to improve the quality and durability of the pitches.

Dave Hockey was proud to be involved in helping the Parish Council to prepare its funding bid and liaising with South Glos Officers and the Executive Member who made the recommendation and decision to award the funding.
