The project will create new changing facilities that will make it more 'girl and women' friendly and help encourage increased participation in both cricket and Rounders via our partnership with Thornes Sharks Rounders club. We will also create a new meeting room and activity space that will help us develop a new range of sports and healthy lifestyle activities for children and young people. It will also help us deliver coach education and training to encourage more people to become involved in sports leadership The facility will also be available for use by local groups and agencies for meetings and training
