Situation

Due to the club’s growth, not just the numbers of teams but also the inclusion of girls and children with disabilities, our existing facilities are no longer adequate. As a community club, with clear development plans, it has become evident that we need to move forward and provide a facility that would meet legislation set by the FA and also cater for both genders and people with disabilities. As a result of recognizing the above we are currently bidding to the Football Foundation for funding to build changing facilities at the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School playing fields, which is where we play our home matches. This new build will adjoin the current sports hall and will house 6 new changing rooms and associated facilities. The total proposed cost of the build is £600,000. We are bidding to the Football Foundation for a large % of this cost and Queen Elizabeth Grammar School are also helping with funding but we as a charity also have to raise a proportion of the required funds. The proposed build will greatly improve the facilities for the children with disabilities and enable us to create a friendly disability league, an open age section for disabled people which will provide a pathway for our children with disabilities and also to host events for these children in a safe, secure environment. It will also enable us to expand the girls section of our club and allow us to offer our facilities to more children than we can currently cater for and also offer other sports to both the disabled and able-bodied members of the club.
