Empowering local people to develop and support projects that will enhance our shared communal spaces
The Walker Ground is the centre of the community when it comes to sport. Whilst we have access to 14 acres of green space for football, rugby, cricket and other sports, there is an increasing demand for indoor sport space for community groups and club. We have been approached by a number of martial art and fitness groups who looking for indoor space to run their sessions during the evenings and weekends. It is clear that there is insufficient space available in the community at the times require for they are owned by private organisations charge high rents and fees. The Walker Ground would like to provide additional space for the provision of sport and provide the community with a safe, sufficient and affordable space for our clubs and groups. Providing this new sporting space will promote healthier lifestyles, help tackle obesity and provide a space where people can meet and socialise.
