Tennis Club lease signed
As reported in July (click here), the Parish Council has offered to lease land and buildings formerly leased to Keyworth Playing Fields Association to the clubs which use them. The first club to take advantage of this was Keyworth Tennis Club, and the lease of the courts and clubhouse has now been signed. Council chairman Tony Grice is pictured, looking on as Eugene O'Connor, John Stansfield and Maxine Barklett attend to formalities.
Activity Park - latest news
It's beginning to look as though the proposed activity park on the Rectory Field could become a reality in the near future, with funding offered by Sport England provided most of the work can be done by the end of March. Rushcliffe Community Partnership has also pledged funds, and it looks likely that there will be a contribution from WREN. There are no guarantees at this stage, but everyone is working hard to make the most of this opportunity.
