A new Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) in Chapel Memorial Park is to be officially opened on Saturday, October 15 at 1.30pm.
The project is the culmination of 18 months of hard work by the Friends of the Park, who secured £50,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Community Spaces programme, with a lot of help from Chapel Parish Council.
The MUGA will provide an all weather surface and be marked out for hockey, cricket, netball, basketball and football. The official opening ceremony will take place at 2pm and be carried out by Councillor Mike Harrison.
During the afternoon the Village Games will provide coaching for netball, rounders, circuit training, basketball, penalty shoot-outs and various other activities.
