New Clubhouse Memorial Garden Takes Shape

posted in: Development Fund News, News | 0

Despite Covid-19 keeping fans away from the Horsfall that hasn’t stopped ground improvements for when fans can safely return.

Thanks to the fantastic efforts from the Directors and supporters from West Bowling ARLFC and the support of Bradford Park Avenue volunteers, the new clubhouse memorial garden is starting to take shape. 

Through grants, donations from local businesses, donations from West Bowling and the BPA Development Fund as well as a donation in memory of long standing Avenue supporter Gilbert Fox. The memorial garden has gone from an overgrown, dark and unwelcoming place to a large open and useable space for supporters to sit and socialise (hopefully after a win on the pitch). The clubhouse also now has full disabled access directly from Cemetery Road.

There is still a bit more work to be done with leveling the space and adding new astroturf to the spot. It will then be ready to be furnished into a welcoming environment. 

All we need then is for the end of Covid-19 so supporters can enjoy using the new space.
