Over the next week you will see a safety fence being erected around the pavilion and scout hut. Local contractor, Bill Kear, will be attending to demolition and site clearance starting on Monday, 25th November. Sports Clubhouses has been appointed as our main contractor and William Harmsworth will be overseeing the project. Thanks to everyone who helped with clearing the buildings and to Graham Capel and Simon Cryer for providing storage. We are still needing more money (see below) so if you are able, please donate using the mydonate site above. Girls coach and top photographer, Nigel Spreadbury, will be recording progress for posterity.
We have raised £85,000 through general fund raising. Sport England has confirmed the award of £50,000 and the ECB has increased their grant to £75,000 with an additional possibility of a further loan of £50,000 if required. Another funding body has sent us a letter of intent for £50,000. We hoped that would enhance our application to the Surrey County Council Community Fund (£30,000) but we heard on the 8th October that our application had been rejected for the third time. We are now hoping that the London Marathon Trust (£70,000 - decision in December) will come up trumps. William Harmsworth has been able to get a reduction in the overall cost so with the knowledge that the ECB money must be spent by the 31st January 2015 a decision has been reached to proceed.
The winners of the draw which took place on the 5th November were:
Lee Brien - £70.00, James Turnbull - £35.00, Rob Bennett - £21.00, Anna Haynes - £17.00

ECB Clubmark & Focus Club Accreditation.
We originally gained our accreditaion in 2007. Following a detailed inspection on the 17th May 2010 the club passed with flying colours and our accreditation was approved for a further three years. Our paperwork was approved by the ECB in February 2013 and we had an inspection on the 8th July 2013. Our new certificate can be viewed in the clubhouse.
Strokes, blood clots etc.
This is for everyone. If somebody stumbles unaccountably they may have had a stroke. Ask them to smile, to say a simple sentence or raise both arms. Also ask them to stick out their tongue and check if it is crooked. If they cannot do any of these simple things call the emergency service as they may have had a stroke. Time is of the essence you might just save a life!
