Cllr Joanne Gardner and Cllr Karen Henshaw, as Committee members of the Friends of Blackpool Road North Playing Field, welcome Fylde Borough Council's decision to provide the funding to replace the drain on the Field.
Work will include the replacement of the existing “culverted” drain down the side of the Field with a new “French Drain”, together with an additional stretch across the Field to assist in drainage.
This will make a huge difference to members of St Annes Football Club, who celebrate their 50 years anniversary next year. The Friends Group have campaigned for many years now for improvements to this long-neglected area of St Annes. It is understood that Fylde Borough Council are also planning to replace the worn-out Children's Playground - not before time!
Let's look forward to a New Year and a New Playing Field!
