SO HOW ARE LAST YEAR’S PROJECTS DOING?

VOICE YOUR CHOICE PROJECT UPDATE FROM RASTRICK JUNIORS FOOTBALL CLUB

Below is a comment from Rastrick Juniors Football Club issued June 2016:

“Rastrick Juniors Football Club project to make improvements to our ground by installing a Clubhouse & Changing room has not been able to proceed as quickly as we hoped. 

This is due to legal proceedings involving planning permission issues. We are working hard to resolve these issues as soon as possible to allow the building work to begin. 

Rastrick Big Local is supporting us in this matter and we have agreed a time limited (3 months) contract extension to complete the project.” 

For further information please contact the club.
