Chief Executive’s Review

For the first time ever, we have cracked the 3,000 children mark which was brilliant. To have had a total of 3,089 children involved with us despite the worst the weather could throw at us, which did cause havoc with a number of sadly cancelled sessions, was especially pleasing.

Record amounts of support from funders both locally and nationally have allowed us to continue to grow.

However, I do long for the day when we can have a facility which allows us to be rain resistant and hopefully, we can make that happen soon.

Once again, we must thank our volunteers, parents and trustees for the hard work they put in and I can’t write this piece without thanking our team. Neil, Michael and Debbie your support is invaluable.

For most of us this countryside and the opportunity to play sport is one we take for granted but the reality is that it is not shared by everyone.
