Facilities Development Update
There has been an incredible show of support for the Friends of the Rockies fundraiser so far. 87 people have completed sign up to date with a further 77 people committed to sign up over the next few weeks. That gives us a total of 164 people who have pledged to become Friends Of The Rockies and we are powering forward towards our first major milestone of 200 backers in the coming weeks and months. We would like to thank you all for this incredible show of support and would ask those who have pledged support to complete the sign up process. Contact details and methods of payment are detailed at the end of this email.
What does this rate of progress mean?
Thanks to you and your support we are now able to push forward with the development of Phase 2 of the project. Tenders have gone out, potential contractors have been on site and we are awaiting final proposals which will be examined closely by the club’s committees. Once a preferred contractor is selected in the coming weeks, we will then seek approval from the Sports Capital Funding body to begin construction. The 4G surface will be ordered to specification and it is hoped that construction can begin before the end of Spring. The project will take 8 to 12 weeks to complete – just in time for County Final training sessions! 🙂
It is vital that we continue to support and promote the Friends Of The Rockies fundraiser and continue to drive this project towards Phase 3.
