Furness Vale Community Organising Green Space (COGS) is celebrating being awarded £50,000 in the current round of playing field funding granted by Sport England.

The plan is to use this grant to level and drain the playing field and create a specification football pitch suitable for competition football.

The current state of the sloping field is so bad that the site cannot be used for most of the year and members of Furness Football Club are forced to pay to use neighbouring facilities.

As well as benefiting the Football Club, the improvements will support the provision of much needed sport and recreational opportunities for the whole community and represent the first phase of development of the field for a space for all to use and enjoy.

COGS Committee would like to thank sincerely all our loyal supporters, HPBC and Whaley Bridge Councillors and Friends in Furness Vale, New Mills, Whaley Bridge and beyond who have actively supported us over the years, in numerous ways, helping us to achieve this success.

Please watch the COGS notice board on Charlesworth Road and COGS website page on this site for updates and dates of meetings.  We welcome new members to our committee – please come along if you are interested in joining us.

Next Meeting 24th June 2013 , Furness Vale Community Centre at 7.30pm
