Works at the home of Goole Rugby Union Football Club and Goole Tennis Centre at Westfield Banks, Goole, to repair the roof, along with improvements to the disabled stair lift, have been completed using £11,800 awarded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of Commuted Sums from local housing developments.
The repair works to the roof were essential to protect the indoor tennis courts, and the stair lift allows people with a disability access to the upstairs area at the club house. These works are the second phase of a larger project which has taken place at the Sports Complex.
The repair works were done to make sure the club house remains fit for purpose.
Goole RUFC have been based at the Westfield Banks site since 1996, following the successful expansion of their junior and mini teams which necessitated the move from their old ground to the larger site at Westfield Banks. The Club run two senior teams and a variety of mini and junior teams from Under 19s to Under 7s.
Shaun Pinchbeck, Chairman of the Sports Complex, said: "The Westfield Banks Sports Complex is extremely grateful for the support received from East Riding of Yorkshire Council via its commuted sums process, and to MNA Group for the work carried out on the roof, which after over 25 years was in need of some crucial repair work".
Councillor Mike Stathers, portfolio holder for Place Shaping including Operational Services, added: "I am very pleased that we have been able to assist the Sports Complex at Westfield Banks through commuted sums provided by local housing developments as a condition of their planning approval. I wish Goole Rugby Union Football Club and Goole Tennis Centre every success for the future."
