Sue Fell has been successful in acquiring two grants for the Parish Hall from both Cumbria County Council and Eden District Council to improve healthy outcomes and increase physical activity. This will allow us to obtain more sports equipment. One key part of the plan is to mark out a badminton court in the hall and purchase the necessary equipment.
The contractor has painted the lines and sealed the floor today, Monday 24th October and the seal will be dried and ready for use from Wednesday 26th. We are ordering some free-standing badminton posts, a net and a starter pack of rackets and shuttlecocks which should be with us soon.
So if you are interested in playing badminton or can help run the session(s) please contact us via the website or speak to Sue Fell or David Keetley. It would be great to start a club in the next few weeks; alternatively, players can book the hall for a game as a one-off session.
