Steps to get it done:

  • Completion of the entire project by the end of the year, but earlier if possible

New Longton Sports and Social Club is not-for-profit organisation, it is managed by a committee of volunteers who freely give their time for the benefit of the community. We fund our operation from bar and membership revenues, any surpluses are reinvested to the benefit of the membership. The funding of the refurbishment and upgrade of the changing rooms will provide a welcoming, inclusive, safe & hygienic environment for sport participants. The work will guarantee the continued playing of sport in the community with enhanced changing facilities providing an opportunity to attract new junior, women, girls and disabled members.
