Northwood FC has submitted a bid to the Football Stadium Improvement Fund for funding to complete a variety of improvements during the summer of 2019- including new seating in the newly-designated "Byrne Stand", new entrance gates, a new turnstile block, replacement security fencing and a new covering for the pitch perimeter walkway. In addition to this, the kitchen area inside the recently-refurbished clubhouse is due for a complete update.
While the FSIF may fund up to 70% of the cost of the work, the Club now has to raise the other 30% itself, which will be a total of around £30,000. Some of it has already been pledged by kind donations from Club Committee members but the Woods would be very grateful for donations from any supporters past or present, ex-players who might remember their time at the club with fondness, or anybody from the extended football family locally or otherwise.
The work is planned to be carried out in June and July 2019 so we do need to raise these funds fairly quickly. Anybody who makes a donation and gives their name will be listed as a valued contributor to the project on a roll of honour inside the ground.
A 'Go Fund Me' page has been set up, and the fundraising is going well, but you can add to it by heading here.
