Staunton Harold S.C. Awarded 2nd Inspired Facilities Grant by Sport England.

Staunton Harold S.C. Awarded 2nd Inspired Facilities Grant by Sport England.
Awesome news for our club. Sport England have awarded us a grant of £56,000 under their Inspired Facilities program for the expansion and modernisation of our sail training facilities. 
Our project includes refurbishment and modernisation of the existing training room including addition of facilities for the disabled, an extension to our boathouse to provide an overflow to the training room, for covered "hands on" training, and to accommodate training boats, and lengthening the training slipway for access to the water at low water levels.
We expect to start on the slipway very soon, and the building work will be done over the winter and next spring.
Remarkably, this is our 2nd such award, the 1st of £50,000 for our new changing rooms being given to us in 2012.
This is a further significant boost to the development and future of our club.
