Paulton Netball Club has been fundraising since September in order to install floodlights at Paulton park. Currently there is no safe provision for training at night in the village and the club has been forced to play at Midsomer Norton and Writhlington since
The beginning of the season.
To date the netball club has held a sponsored shoot-out and fun day, disco and Body Shop evening and has raised more than £1,000 for their Let There Be Light fund.
As part of their fundraising, on Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm, the club will be holding a Christmas fair at Paulton Rovers featuring Santa’s grotto, tombola, cake stalls, refreshments and lots of fun and games for the children.
On Sunday December 10 the players will be carol singing at Tesco, collecting donations and dressing up in festive costums.
The netball club has recently joined forces with Paulton Rovers Youth Football Club as they also have nowhere safe to train at night.
The clubs jointly represent more than 150 children and more than 30 adults and they would welcome any support in their fundraising efforts.
Both sports clubs are committed to bring their sport home to Paulton and, in the process, provide a new sporting facility for the village to enjoy.
