Also – if anyone has found a child’s pink rain mac that was lost at the Crosspool Summer Fayre on Saturday, please let us know.
A new camel ride and safety surfacing has been installed in the under 12s playground at Crosspool & District Youth Sports Trust (CDYST) on Coldwell Lane.
Secretary and trustee Gillian Drinkwater said: “Thank you to everyone who contributed to our funds to make this possible.
“Now the warmer weather and lighter evenings are here may we ask parents to ensure their football-mad youngsters do not use the hall walls for practising against? Sadly the permanent goal posts had to be removed, but that does not mean the wall is a suitable alternative as this causes great distress to users inside, and children doing this and refusing to stop have been reported to the police.”
A message from Gillian Drinkwater, Secretary and Trustee of Crosspool and District Youth Sports Trust (CDYST):
CDYST wishes to thank the Henry Boot Community First Endowment Fund for South Yorkshire for its generous grant in December 2015.
This has allowed the trustees to buy more orange barrier netting, new shepherd’s crook fencing pins and some keep off the grass signs. These are used every spring when we close the Coldwell Lane under 11s pitches for essential summer maintenance – the expensive hollow-tining, reseeding, weedkiller spraying and fertilizer spreading – and our old materials were getting very shabby.
The grant was obtained with the kind assistance of the South Yorkshire Community Foundation.
