Winterton’s multi-sports pitch set for £250,000 makeover

The multi-sport community pitch in Winterton is set for major overhaul with £250,000 cash confirmed to create a new playing surface.

Plans have been developed by North Lincolnshire Council and the community for a new pitch that supports the widest array of sports – including football, tennis and hockey.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This is a significant investment in expanding and updating the sports facilities in Winterton, ensuring a whole host of clubs, community groups and children from the local schools can play as wide an array of sports as possible.

“It is the latest investment in the community and follows cash for the town council to expand the play facilities in West Street Park and a new gym and library only a few years ago.

“This investment in the community will create a modern facility that can be used by many groups, clubs and families.”

North Lincolnshire Council is paying £100,000 towards the pitch with a further £148,000 taken from cash secured by the council from developers.

While the pitch is already used by Winterton Community Academy, Barton Hockey Club and a range of other community sports groups, the investment in an improved surface will open up the pitch to attract new users.

The refurbishment will be completed through the Football Federation Framework, fast-tracking the development and ensuring the highest standards.
