WE HAVE A DREAM! To run wild at lunch and playtimes - no matter what the weather!

WE HAVE A DREAM to race on a running track at sporting events to compete against each other and be the best version of ourselves.

WE HAVE A DREAM to have the best facilities to promote wellbeing through fitness and keeping a healthy lifestyle.

How can we achieve our dreams?1657708319_picture_for_rocketfund.png

In the words of Usain Bolt....Stop waiting for things to happen. Go out and make them happen.

We're all entitled to dream but we need your help to make it happen.

We want to build an all weather running track around the lower field with access from the playground similar to the example below. The track will lead off from the playground and circumnavigate the lower field, not obstructing the central area that will still be used for sports and games.

The field is not used for wet times of the year and becomes boggy and unusable. By building an all weather track, this will allow children full acess all year round- keeping children fit and active in the winter and summer seasons.

What is the timing of this project?

Stage 1

The ground needs to be made level first and so we need to pay for the underlayer to be levelled off to make the track even and safe.

Stage 2

To build the surface layer of the track between 1.5 and 2m wide.

If funds are in place, this can be installed within 2-3months.

How much will it cost?

We have to obtain 3 quotes and look at the best surface for our field as well as the cost. The cost is estimated to be between £20,000- £30,000. The sooner we raise the money, the sooner it can be installed. The more money we raise, the wider the track can be and the more ambitious with regard to markings.

We would like the track installed by Summer 2023, if we can raise enough funds.

So how can you help?

By donating any amount, you will help us on our way. If you can fundmatch any of our fundraising sporting events this year, this will all go towards the costs of the track. The PTA events will all contribute towards this dream.

How do I donate?
