MP calls for all weather pitch at Hallgarth

April 18, 2006 6:03 PM

Following his recent advice surgery at Hallgarth Community Centre, local MP Tim Farron has asked the Council for improvements to be made to the all weather surface on part of the playing field at the rear of Low Garth. Local residents hope that this would offer young people a facility that can be used in all weathers. A hard surface already covers some of this area but after heavy rain the site becomes muddy and boggy and unusable for sporting activities. Tim has also spoken with younger people at Hallgarth, and they agreed that a better all weather surface is needed.

Tim commented: "I have put forward this suggestion to the Council on behalf of a number of residents to see if it is a viable solution to providing a place for young people to play sport outside of school. It could be a wonderful community facility, and with the hard surface that already exists there I would hope that this could be achieved".
