Beyond the Green
As an Asset of Community Value we are endeavouring to develop other areas for the benefit of the Community. To date, a small group of dedicated gardeners (all club members) have redeveloped the garden areas. Scarbrorough Borough Council have been supportive in replacing the very old and deteriorating rose beds and providing advice. Plants have been donated by B&Q and members and we have received some excellent comments from members of the public who walk this area. The Club entered the All Muck & Magic competition and recieved some very positive comments from the judge. We were delighted to be awarded a Silver Gilt certificate and The Most Promising New Entry - cup & certificate at the annual awards ceremony.
Members have also renovated and repaired the benches with the materials being provided by the Council.
Scarborough Athletics Club use the clubhouse every Monday as a meeting place ahead of their runs.
For the past two years we have supported Radio York's 'Cake & a Cuppa' initiative on Yorkshire Day. This has involved providing delicacies including - Parkin, Spaffy & Fat Rascals. Visitors are encouraged to have a go at 'Welly Wanging' and 'Bash the Ferret'. Over 50 visitors attended, many were unaware of the existence and location of the Club.
We are endeavouring to develop this community aspect of the Club and encourage locals to attend events both in the season and attending our Winter programme of activities.
