Become ‘friends of this facility’ where you protect and safeguard this property meant to benefit scores of generations from now. This should be a safe space for your children to develop and nurture their sporting talents but it should also serve as a recreational space for all”.

• A full-size soccer artificial pitch
• Swimming pool
• Outdoor courts and gym facilities
