KNEBWORTH KIDS GET
Knebworth footballers are
to receive a massive £234,838 funding package from the Football
Foundation, the UK's largest sports charity.
The cash boost will allow
Knebworth Parish Council to start construction on a state of the art
pavilion housing six changing rooms, alongside social areas and spectator
facilities. It will replace a dilapidated 1920s building which has been
subject to repeated vandalism and has been considerably damaged in a
recent arson attack........
Ian Gilmore, chairman of
Knebworth Parish Council said:
"We are extremely grateful to the Football Foundation for
providing Knebworth with such significant support towards the new
Pavilion. The grant is the largest of its type received by the village and
will put Knebworth football facilities on the map. Football in Knebworth
can only go from strength to strength.
We also wish to record
our thanks to Knebworth Village Trust, North Herts District Council and
the residents of Knebworth for their support. All contributors have made
this a worthwhile project and one to be proud of"
