To be good neighbours. To allow the local community to benefit from our facility as we are fortunate enough to benefit from facilities that other community groups don’t have access to. Foster harmonious relationships with neighbours. Members of the local community will eventually become fans, players and volunteers within the club. To encourage exchanges of best practice within groups.
