Sport England & Field Update Nov 17

Fantastic News! Sport England have awarded Russell Scott £75,000 towards the Multi-sport Floodlit Games Area (MUGA)


There is a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow….somebody’s looking down on us!
Yesssssssssss!!!! We are pleased to announce that Sport England have awarded us £75,000 towards the floodlit artificial multi-use games area. As you know we have been writing grant bids to raise enough money to provide a fantastic resource for our community. We applied for £100,000 but there were thousands of applicants and not enough money to give us the full amount. So now we need to raise the difference of £25,000 so the project can start. If anybody has any ideas how we can make that happen or you’ve won the Lottery please let me know!

Quick update from the Council Engineers:

  • Muck shift – This hopefully will be completed today, Friday 17th November at which point around 350 loads of material will have been removed from site.  The ground has been left around 100mm high to offer some protection to the formation level.
  • The haul road will be left in place for the moment to assist with vehicle movements.
  • The manhole on the access path has been constructed, backfilling will occur tomorrow.  The bad news is there appears to be a further area of pipe with back fall located under the fence with Crown Point North.  The engineers will need to make contact with the management of the shopping estate to undertake investigation work and probably to dig on the sewer in their land.

Upcoming works:

  • The engineers will be installing gullies to improve the drainage of the access path from Crown Point North.  The concrete edgings will then be adjusted and the path resurfaced.  This will require the path to remain closed for the time being.
  • Once the access path is completed we will move on to installing the attenuation pipework and associated manholes.  Connections will also be provided to pick up the drainage from the playground extensions.
  • Once the drainage works are completed we will start on the construction of the playground extension areas, firstly stoning the areas, installing the gullies and then finishing with the tarmac.

Excellent News….big thank you from the Russell Scott Community to Sport England and to TMBC Engineers who are doing a great job …..thanks for looking after us ….we can now see things are happening and progressing well.
