Two local councillors, Councillor Shweta Kapadia and Councillor Barry Fairbank, have granted the club almosgt £500, as part of the Community Connect scheme run by Elmbridge Borough Council. The grant, which had to be spent on a specific piece of equipment, has been towards the purchase of a mobile net. This will help ease pressure on the existing nets.
Great amusement was had by a number of club members watching other members scratching their heads trying to set it up at the weekend. Flat-pack assembly certainly isn’t the strongpoint of a couple of club members! After many hours of discussion and pontification, the net was finally constructed and already has been in use. Needless to say, the club is very grateful to the councillors in approving this grant.
