Supporting Culture and Sport in Lancashire.
At Astley & Buckshaw we believe in community first, it is the children of our local schools and community that play at the club and it is their schools that the club makes use of and maintains pitches, both for school and club use for the hundreds of children in the club and thousands at the schools as well as playing facilities around the community. Very often a 3rd party cannot make the necessary line markings whether that is 5v5 size, 7v7, 9v9 or 11v11 which prevents critical school access to usable facilities as well as club use. Some of the more under Priviledged children in the area as well as the ones from the diverse backgrounds rely on this service to supply usable pitches to play planned games and all too often that is called off because no pitch lining has taken place when a club managed auto lining robot would cure this problem and can be self administer to ensure access and use every time. The Tiny Robot would alleviate this problem for all facilities maintained.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The benefits are that thousands of children will have access to playing facilities at local schools, particularly girls in football, under Priviledged children, those with SEND and diverse backgrounds as well as all club teams and players, where currently these activities are all too often called off or cancelled because of weather related issues where its raining, the ground is too soft and the ride on equioment sinks in the grass or leaves wheel ruts that ruin a pitch or that the 3rd party supplier simply cannot turn up when needed, so the club maintained Tiny Robot would virtually eradicate that issue and allow these schools and club maintained facilities to continue and go ahead allowing all of the children both at the schools and club playing facilities.
Steps to get it done:
It is our aim at Astley & Buckshaw JFC to be one of the most inclusive and leading accessible junior football clubs in the UK, providing junior grassroots football to the entire community for all able, SEND, female, diverse background children to partake in the game that so many worldwide love to take part in whatever their skill or ability level, that is our ethos and the more schools we can assist and maintain in terms of pitch lining to provide critical usable surfaces to allow school and club games to go ahead the better the community will be, the more volunteers we will have and create for these games and teams to play. It will also avoid school fields and playing facilities damage from heavy ride-on equipment that creates ruts in the surface helping the environment and will most certainly increase playing ability across the area and wider community.
