EDF Energy, owners of West Burton Power Station, has awarded a grant of £10,000 to our club to help refurbish the clubhouse to make it more welcoming to both members and visitors and make additional alterations to improve access for disabled people. Work has already begun and will continue through the summer. Andy Richardson from EDF made the presentation to our chairman Richard Howard during junior coaching and said "it was a pleasure to see and understand the great work you are involved in. The local communities, especially children, are very fortunate to have such a well-managed, cared for facility and support network"
Zingy, the EDF mascot also came along to both pose with everyone and spend a bit of time umpiring part of the session. Photos of the presentation should be on the website in the next few weeks.
All this is on top of the two other fabulous grants totalling £39,522 from the Nottinghamshire County Council and Bassetlaw District Council Legacy funds for the resurfacing of the courts and the renewing of the perimeter fencing.
