Weʼre raising £3,000 to Help Parkwyddn JFC make some much needed repairs to their football pitches. We have recently suffered serious vandalism of our pitches.
Unfortunately, this weekend we have seen our club football pitches severely vandalized by the use of a quad bike. The issue again now is that our teams may not be able to play football on the pitches for weeks, the kids are going to suffer due to mindless vandals again ruining what we as a club are trying very hard to provide. All members of the club are volunteers giving up their time to enable young children to get out of their bedrooms and onto the pitch enjoying what they love to do. The pitches this weekend have been severely damaged.
We have been working with the council for two years trying to get a fence installed to stop this kind of thing from happening. Recently we managed to have a knee rail surrounding the pitches installed which will prevent cars accessing but sadly not quads or motorcycles. We still want to have a fence installed as other local parks have, however this is proving very difficult to achieve for several reasons.
With this happening we need to get pitches repaired asap. Aside from all this mindless damage we do have other pitch repairs required to bring the pitches back to their best. Our funding is simply through sub payments and sponsorship’s so money is simply not available to fund these kinds of nasty surprises.
We will also look to the council to help with funding and repairs, should we manage to gain some support from the council, any monies made in excess of the required funds would go directly to improving the new junior greens by the club house which also need serious work. The new pitches which will require work will give our 3-10 year old budding footballers a cleaner, safer environment to enjoy the sport they love.
So, we appeal for your help however big or small, every donation helps.
We thank you all in advance.
