A SPORTS pitch in Findon which benefitted from a £13,000 grant was officially opened.

Arun District Council provided the funds for the improvements to the pitch at Glebe Land, behind Findon Village Hall, which included fencing and surfacing.

The money was awarded by the Joint Downland Area Committee.

Dudley Wensley, deputy leader of Arun District Council and Joint Downland Area Committee member, said: “There is substantial evidence about the benefits of young people getting plenty of exercise so I am sure this new pitch will become a popular place for children to enjoy their favourite sports.”

On October 21, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne officially opened the new pitch.

The Joint Downland Area Committee is comprised of councillors from Arun District Council, West Sussex County Council, town and parish councils.

The committee decides on the amount of grants to give to community causes which help the Downland area.
