Alford young golfer Ashton Turner, who has represented the full England Boys Team’ appearing in both the European Boys Team Championship and the Boys Home Internationals, recently opened the Alford Sports Hall’s new floor.
The new sprung floor was built as a result of a £49,500 grant from Sport England’s ‘Inspired Facilities’ programme.
Alford Sports Hall Manager Elaine Oatway said: “The new floor will be pivotal in providing first class facilities for people in Alford and surrounding areas”.
Peter Milson, Chair of the Alford Sports Hall Association, added: “We are very grateful for the award from Sports England which was the result of two years hard work by Sports Hall staff and committee members”.
Alford Sports Hall was built as part of a ‘Chance to Share Agreement’ between Lincolnshire County Council, John Spendluffe Technology College and the Alford Sports Hall Association. It is situated on the John Spendluffe site and used by the College students during the day, in term time, and by the local community in the evening, weekends and school holidays.
