TWO Worle football clubs have launched a public appeal to secure funding for improvements at the village recreation ground.

The Worle and Vikings clubs are bidding to win a £5,000 grant from The One Family Foundation for outdoor improvements which would include a parking area, shelter for spectators around the clubhouse and portable lighting, so players can train or play regardless of daylight limitations.

The facilities are used by children aged 11 to 14 and young adults aged between 16 and 30, as well as many of the area’s families.

Nick Hutchings, manager of Vikings Under-12s team, said: “It would mean so much to the boys to be able to play at Worle rec all year round.

“Currently we have to train in Churchill in the winter, which not every family can afford to do.

“The bid would improve the rec for all-year sport and would also greatly benefit the community, so please vote for us.”

Volunteers will carry out the work except where professional expertise is required, with risk assessments planned if the bid is successful.
