Fund-raising light lunch at the village hall
Just under £200 raised at this very pleasant event. Thanks to everyone who came along.
(4 2 2019)
The money, awarded by WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund will be used to build two new hard surface tennis courts with surrounding fencing at Hauxton Sports Ground. We believe this facility will provide a real boost to the people of Hauxton and Harston wanting to become involved in tennis. It’s great that WREN have awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to the tennis courts taking shape during the spring of this year.
Funding was also provided by Cambridge Lawn Tennis Association and the national LTA.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Cheryl Raynor, WREN’s grant manager for Cambridgeshire, says: “We’re delighted to be supporting the new tennis courts at Hauxton and pleased our funding will provide such a fantastic sporting facility for people of all ages. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and we’re really looking forward to seeing this one take shape soon.”
