We are at the very early stages of a substantial grant application to the Big Lottery to expand the Maltings Pavilion to make it more user friendly for sports lovers and party goers at the same time. Simultaneous events such as this Saturday evening when 1st Team and A Team are playing at home and we have a party starting at 7pm in function room make it impossible to keep everyone happy.
It's fantastic that the income the parties generate helps maintain the building, the playing fields and supports sporting activity for all the clubs - but we need more space. You will be asked to complete a survey form over the next few weeks because we want to 'consult the community' and prove there is a 'need'.
There was a press report in Friday's BBJ and also in the EDP on the Local News pages. Please follow this link to read the report.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY WE HAVE MADE AVAILABLE ON LINE. Click the link
Also in the EDP there was a report of the predicament of Wymondham Town FC who are in danger of folding because they owe £3,000 and have £283 in the bank! There but for the grace of God they say.
Bigger is not always better but it will give us the opportunity to raise more money away from sporting activity and plough it back into all the sports clubs at the Maltings Meadow.
Your Sports Club needs you!!!!
In the words of the great Barney Vass at a committee meeting many years ago when bar income was falling: "I'm drinking a bottle of blue vodka now after each match - how much more do you want me to drink?"
