Pendle Council is celebrating funding to improve sporting facilities and create a dedicated cycle track in Nelson.

150 thousand pounds from Sport England Inspired Facilities for the new Steven Burke Sports Hub based at Swinden Playing Fields will be matched with another £150,000 match funding which will pay for a cycle track around the cricket and football pitches

The funding will also allow  for the old pavilion to be refurbished and the car park to be resurfaced to attract cyclists, cricketers and footballers from all over Pendle to the Steven Burke Sports Hub.

Thanks to the matched contributions and support of:

Pendle Borough Council,  Sport England ‘Inspired Facilities’,  British Cycling,  Lancashire Environmental Fund,   Nelson & Colne Area Committees

A massive thanks to everyone involved with making this happen.
