Town Council Awards Football Club £1,500 Grant

26th Nov 2018

A grant of £1,500, for the 2018/19 football season, was awarded to both the Tenterden Town Football Club and Juniors by the Town Council on Monday, 12 November to help fund booking fees at the new 3G pitch at Homewood School.

Following the announcement of a new fee structure for the floodlit, £450,000 3G pitch by Ashford Borough Council and the Tenterden Schools Trust, the club expressed concerns about the costs of hiring the pitch for fixtures and training sessions.

The Town Council has invited representatives of the club to meet and discuss the new funding arrangements, and meanwhile continues to make progress towards securing additional traditional grass pitches which could be available to the club.
