Work on the Miners War Memorial situated on the Old Colliery Offices has now begun. The restorers from Northampton have been specially commissioned after receiving a grant from the War Memorials Trust to carry out the work. Once the work is complete there will be a Re-dedication service carried out by the Reverend Gary Schofield on Sunday the 5th October 2014 from 10.30 am to which everyone in the community is invited. There will also be music by the Maltby Miners Welfare Brass band.
The Kiveton Park & Wales Community Development Trust are currently planning to refurbish the tarmac sports courts situated at the side of the Old Colliery Offices and would like your help, support and feedback.
The court was provided some fifteen years ago by the development trust for the community to use. Although still in regular use at weekends, evenings and in particular during the school holidays time has not been kind to the facility and after fifteen years it is now in urgent need of repair. The proposal put forward by the Trust is to refurbish the court bringing it right bang up to date with an all weather 3g artificial grass pitch, brand new floodlighting and state of the art fencing. The layout of the new area will enable it to be used as three separate pitches or one large pitch. Eventually changing rooms and pavilion with spectator gallery are hoped to be provided to compliment a facility built for the 21st century. The Trust is keen to get the local community onboard and in particular get their views on the project.
Therefore as part of the inaugural Kiveton & Wales Table football competition to be held in the Village Hall on Saturday 11th October there will also be the plans of the development on show for the community to view. At the same time you will be able to ask any questions and give your feedback to the team.
So please come along and support the project and let us know what you think.
