1 – Sports Project

The Friends are pleased that the new Sports Arena has now been completed and is in full use on most days. Amazing to see the difference from 2006 – 2018 – hope everyone enjoys using it. Blackpool FC Community Trust is already running Football sessions on Saturday evenings from 6-9pm.  The Friends would appreciate users of the Sports Arena respecting the local neighbours and keeping sports balls contained within the Sports Arena area. There have been reports of players visiting local gardens without permission to collect balls that have been knocked over there, the Friends would appreciate everyone’s co-operation in this matter.

2 – Table Tennis Project

July 2018 our new Table for Table Tennis has been installed thanks to Beaverbrook’s for sponsoring the project. Bats ad balls are being provided as and when the ‘Friends’ are able to, otherwise please feel free to bring your own and enjoy playing ‘PING’ on the newly installed table.  We also want to Thank Asda for the £200 of support which will be used for extra equipment for this area.

3 – Bowling Hut Project

The Bowling Hut currently has electric and water but the facilities are definitely in need of upgrading.  The Friends are looking to gather funding to make improvements to this building including new toilet facilties in the future.
