26-06-13 Lancaster Round table gives welcome boost to Highfield project

The Round Table has given the Highfield project £1695 to pay for basketball hoops and boards.  This is a very welcome addition to the range of sports and activities that we can provide on the fully restored former city council recreational area on Derwent Rd.

Welcoming the donation the chair of the Highfield project group said “We are delighted to have this grant.  We are doing all we can to make as many sports and activities as possible available on this site and this is a tremendous boost to the attractions that will very soon be on offer.  We are very grateful to the Round Table”

Ben Robinson of the Round Table said “We are delighted to be able to help this project expand its range of sports and activities.  We aim to improve the quality of life of all Lancaster’s residents and the facilities on this newly restored site will help many thousands of people to enjoy healthy open air sports in a very attractive setting with fantastic Lake District views.  We wish the project every success”
