Deepings football teams to benefit from new £850,000 artificial pitch
A new £850,000 artificial sports pitch could be provided in Deeping St James after the existing one was closed over safety fears.
It emerged at a meeting of South Kesteven District Council that the authority had earmarked £200,000 in its budget for the facility. The council has started talks with the Football Foundation over a grant application for up to £650,000 and is also exploring other alternative funding streams.
It would mean the new pitch would be used mainly for football, with hockey teams having to train elsewhere.
