Chesterfield Panthers have again been successful in receiving nearly £18,000 from Viridor Credits Environmental Company via the Landfill Communities Fund. The funds will go towards the continued development of community areas to the West end of the new clubhouse.
The works comprise the installation of land drainage, paving and cultivation to create better access and surfaces suitable for sporting and community use.
The paved area will be multi use and being adjacent to and with access from the clubroom, could accommodate the erection of a marquee to extend the capacity of the clubroom to allow larger social functions i.e. weddings, dinners, corporate training days etc. as well as a temporary covered area for the administration of sporting festivals.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield, Councillor Steve Brunt and Mrs. Jill Mannion-Brunt attended a recent meeting of the club’s Vice Presidents and Supporters, (the “Coffee Club”) at which the club was pleased to donate £100 to the Mayor’s charity fund.
During the visit the Mayor accompanied by the Mayoress carried out the inaugural “sod cutting” to get the development works underway.
Viridor Credits’ Funded Projects Manager, Gareth Williams, said “Viridor Credits was first involved with the Panthers in 2011 when they relocated to Dunston Road. We are delighted to offer our help again for the continued development of the club.”
The work is being carried out by local contractors Pro-Build (Clowne Landscaping) Limited and Peter Bowden Sports Ground Maintenance Limited and due for completion by early November 2016.
