We have been successful in our application to MCBF for funding and have been awarded the generous amount of £35,000 towards the development of community tennis and netball courts.
On behalf of the students, staff, parents and governors we would like to thank MCBF for their generosity and look forward to celebrating the work with everyone during and post completion. We are a local authority school at the heart of the community. By resurfacing our dilapidated outdoor netball and tennis courts we will be able to encourage members of the Helsby, Elton and Frodsham communities to participate in active recreational sporting activities. As a direct result of this grant we will be able to bring all of our outdoor courts back to use and enhance our facilities to provide accessible, competition standard tennis and netball facilities for our students to use.
Above are some students involved in our Key Stage 3 & 4 Netball Teams who have now been informed about this exciting development, some quotes of thanks direct from students themselves include:
We will be including the Netball and Tennis Courts as a regular feature in our Student Newsletter over the coming months. We will also use our social media and website to publicise the development of the courts. Once the work has been completed we will welcome MCBF to come into school to celebrate!
