Calling all Junior Sports Clubs…

Posted Monday January 28th, 2019, 3:10 pm

For the current Mayor’s year rather than the more usual charity events, Councillors Ron and Carol Whittle have decided to raise funds for three Junior Sports Clubs. The intention is to help develop innovative ways of encouraging more Bridgnorth children to be involved in sport.  This is in recognition that in addition to health benefits sports can be a route to lifetime friendships and better social interaction.

The three clubs will benefit from any funds raised between now and April 2019. All Bridgnorth junior sports clubs, including senior clubs that have a significant junior section will be invited to “bid” for the funds available and in the Spring of this year Ron and his wife Carol will short list six clubs. Council will then be invited to decide the result, with the third place receiving 20% of the fund, second place 30% and first place getting 50%. The form of bids are up to the clubs but will need to show why clubs think they should be awarded funds including, for example, any particular projects they want to run or special events etc. How more children will be encouraged into sport will be key.

Bids MUST be in by end of February 2019 for judging to take place in March/April. They should be sent to Bridgnorth Town Council, College House, St Leonards Close, Bridgnorth WV16 4EJ. If you have any queries please contact Ron Whittle on 07801 615880 or [email protected]
