Work could start on multi-use games area in Deighton this summer

Funding has been secured for the sports facility which will cost £37,829

Work could start in the summer to install a multi-use games area in Deighton.

The project has been given the go-ahead for a £37,829 grant towards the facility, which will be built on on Riddings Road Road.

The Veolia Environmental Trust announced the grant would be awarded to Leeds Groundwork Trust back in January and will include funds for landscaping around the facility and the installation of other pieces of play equipment.

The funding is one of 77 grants totalling almost £2.5m which were awarded to community and environmental projects across the UK.

Capital Programme Co-Ordinator Jon Crossley said: “This grant is brilliant news. It means we can push the project forward and start work on installing the MUGA.”

The Executive Director of The Veolia Environmental Trust, Paul Taylor, says, “This scheme will boost the potential for exercise and enjoyment offered by the Riddings Road Play Zone to the community of Huddersfield, and I look forward to seeing it start and take shape.”
