Nottinghamshire sports association receives a helping hand from local developer

Leading Nottinghamshire developer Barratt and David Wilson Homes has donated £1,000 to the Trent Vale Community Sports Association as part of its Community Fund scheme.

As part of its efforts to support the communities close to its developments, Barratt and David Wilson Homes has made the contribution towards much-needed renovations of Trent Vale Community Sports Association’s clubhouse and grounds.

At the nearby Barratt Homes at Beeston development, the housebuilder is currently building a number of two bedroom apartments as well as a range of two to four bedroom homes.

The Association’s site is used by Beeston Football Club, providing a training ground for 250 of the volunteer-run club’s members. The club has recently added four girls teams as well as an adults team and an additional boys team, serving as a place where members can socialise and exercise together.  

The redevelopment of the derelict club house at Trent Vale will support significant growth in Beeston Football Club in the next five years. The total number of players will increase to more than 350 and the club will grow from 17 teams now to 28, including two disability teams, a new adult women’s team, an additional men’s team as well as more girls’ and boys’ teams.

Chris Southgate, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands, said:

“We are delighted to make our Community Fund donation to the Trent Vale Community Sports Association.

“As a leading homebuilder, we aim to engage with and support the local areas around our developments as much as possible and by making this donation we hope to help the Association continue their fantastic work.”

Leroy Payne, Trustee for Trent Vale Community Sports Association, said:

“This is a fantastic contribution from Barratt and David Wilson Homes which will help make our project a reality. Our aim is to give everyone in the community the opportunity to play football in a positive and supportive environment.

“The new club house at Trent Vale will enable us to do that bringing together boys, girls, people with disabilities and adult players, all representing Beeston. It’s going to be great. Thank you for your support.”
