Campbeltown is the ONLY major centre of population in Argyll & Bute without access to All Weather Pitch Facilities.
Campbeltown is the furthest town in the whole of mainland Scotland from a 3G AWP. We have the ONLY mainland secondary school without access to All Weather Pitch facilities in the WHOLE of Argyll & Bute Council area. We find this totally unacceptable.
Please sign the petition and join the campaign to ensure Argyll & Bute Council deliver an All Weather Pitch for the people of Kintyre. For further information please visit our campaign website at www.abandonpitch.com
The delivery of an 3G (minimum - 4G would be even better) All Weather Pitch means sports like Rugby, Football, Shinty, Hockey, Softball, Running, Athletics etc can be played all year round.
Campbeltown has NO All Weather Facilities. Our local clubs have to train in the dark in the winter under street lights!
We the undersigned believe it is unacceptable that Campbeltown is the only major centre of population in Argyll & Bute Council with no All Weather Pitch (AWP) facilities.
We call upon Argyll & Bute Council to identify funding for a full size All Weather Pitch immediately and give us the facilities enjoyed by the rest of our neighbours in Argyll.
We believe that the lack of such a facility is detrimental to the health of our children and adults alike and that the local authority must concede that action is required immediately.
The Campbeltown and Kintyre AWP Campaign petition to Scottish Executive, Sport Scotland, SFA, SAFA, Argyll & Bute Council etc was written by David Paterson and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
