As their season was drawing to a close Ember’s bowlers took the opportunity to give Sport England a ‘Thumbs Up Thank You’ for their £3,500 support grant from the Community Emergency Fund (CEF).
Ember were facing a difficult year financially due to the Covid-19 lock-down. The loss of all fixtures, social events and internal competitions meant a shortage of funds needed to cover essential green maintenance and renovation programs. However the CEF grant to cover the operational and maintenance costs incurred during the lock-down period will enable the autumn and winter works to progress, leaving the club in a healthy position as it looks forward to next season.
The autumn renovation work starts this week and any help that members can give to complete the work will be most welcome.
