ST MABYN PLAYING FIELDS – FOOTBALL GOALPOSTS The application made last year by the Parish Council to the FA Football Foundation via Mr. Paul Allsey, the FA representative based at Bodmin Sports Centre, for 50% grant funding to purchase new junior football goals for the football pitch, has not been successful. The total cost was £525.00, plus VAT recoverable by the Parish Council, 50% grant funding of the costs would be £262.50, the other 50% was to have been raised hopefully by a football event in the Playing Fields arranged by Paul Allsey. Paul Allsey, who was assisting with the first application, stated that he would help to re-apply again for the grant funding. At the September Parish Council Meeting, this suggestion was not approved. It was suggested at the meeting that alternatively the Parish Council purchase the new goals themselves at the cost of £525.00 plus VAT. This was also not approved. Instead the Parish Council have approved that an attempt would be made to make safe the existing old full size iron goal posts by covering them with a type of polystyrene material as a safety measure, to be used by all age groups. Any views or comments, please contact your Parish Councillors.
