An area of 250 square miles of the central Cotswolds around Bourton-on-the-Water lacks adequate indoor sporting provision. This leaves 1100 students at The Cotswold School without the indoor space for sport and exercise that they need, as well as a further 1100 primary pupils who form the Cotswold School Family Sport Partnership.
Over 150 local sports and leisure clubs, serving 10,000 local residents, lack suitable facilities for indoor sport. One Sports Hall for Bourton-on-the-Water, located at The Cotswold School, would meet the needs of young people and local community providing immense benefits to health, lifestyle and community spirit.
£1.5 million is needed to make the Sports Hall a reality. The Cotswold School has launched a fundraising campaign; support has been pledged by the Parish and District councils. Without a significant contribution from other organisations, including the County Council, this much-needed Sports Hall will not be built. This petition seeks to show to local decision-makers the level of support in the local community for the provision of a Sport Hall and urge them to make the financial contribution needed to make it happen.
We, the undersigned, support the provision of a Sports Hall for Bourton-on-the-Water and call on local decision-makers to provide the finance to make it happen.
The A Sports Hall for Bourton-on-the-Water petition to Decision-makers; potential financial backers was written by The Cotswold School and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
