PARC’s new project is a Multi-Use-Games Area for the old swimming pool site on Rottingdean seafront. This will be the largest undertaking PARC has taken on for some years and will be a permanent and free facility for children and young people to use.
The court will offer a fenced area with proper court markings and goals for 5 a side football, basketball, mini football and cricket bowling and batting practice. The surface will be polymeric which is a product often used for tennis courts and athletics tracks and which offers a more forgiving and flexible surface than tarmac or concrete.
We will be creating the court in memory of 19 year old Connor Saunders who died in Rottingdean in April and is intended to offer young people a better alternative to just hanging around with nothing to do.
PARC needs to raise a further £10,000 towards the cost of building on top of funds already in reserve. £1,000 of this was raised at the Herbie Flowers concert on the Terraces at the end of August and we look forward to hearing from you with ideas to top this up.
Plans will be on display between
12.30 to 3pm Saturday 8th December 2012 at St Margaret’s Cottage, The Green, Rottingdean.
You are invited to come along and look at the plans and, hopefully support the project. Light refreshments will be available.
