Lottery help for flooded pitch

HENLEY TOWN Football Club have been awarded £2,000 of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Flood Relief Fund to help repair the pitch and trees which were badly damaged in the floods and storms during the winter.

In February Sport England launched the £5 million Flood Relief Fund in a bid to help clean up and repair sports pitches and facilities and get them back up and running.

Jennie Price, chief executive of Sport England, said: “The storms and floods devastated many sports facilities across England. We want to play our part in helping communities get back to normal, and we are delighted to be able to get this emergency funding to Henley Town Football Club.”
