Working alongside members of the Oakgrove Parent Council and staff from Education Services, I have helped to develop plans to provide secure fencing and resurfacing of one of the red blaes pitches. Grant funding and donations has been received to cover these works.
The pitch is used by schools in the local area during 9am - 5pm. However, after 5pm on Mondays - Fridays and during weekends, it is open for community use and this is provided free of charge.

The pitch is needed to encourage a range of sports activities and outdoor learning by the community.
Dog walkers are asked to use other areas of Braid Square. This is to ensure that dog fouling is not a problem within the pitch area.
