Work has now started on the new state of the art, full size, floodlit, artificial grass sports pitch at Sherburn High School with Bob Packham the Local Councillor cutting the first sod.
This would not have happened without the support from the Inspired Facilities Fund from Sport England and more locally from Selby District Council, Sherburn Parish Couincil and Sherburn White Rose Football Club.
The Sherburn High School and Community Sports Facilities Development Steering Group and Steve Wells Associates guided the school giving excellent advice and support during the long process and thanks go to their efforts which have now been rewarded.
The new 106m x 70m floodlit, 3G, artificial pitch will support grass roots sport in the area, be used by the school during the day and open to the wider community during evenings and weekends, The facility includes ample parking, fenced and floodlit, full size pitch and changing rooms with shower facilities and will be available to the residents of Sherburn-In-Elmet and the surrounding villages for a range of multi sports including football, rugby and hockey training. Please contact Mr John Wagstaff at Sherburn High School if your club is interested in hiring the new facility which we expect to be available for August 2017.
