Furness Vale residents will be able to hear an update on the progress to create a community sports facility in their village during a meeting next week.

Furness Vale Community Organising Green Space (COGS) will be holding its annual general meeting at Furness Vale Social Club, on Yeardsley Lane, at 7.30pm on Thursday October 27.

Formed by residents, the COGS group has been working for several years to transform an uneven football field with poor drainage into a community sports facility.

A group spokesperson said: “We are inviting people to come along and hear about the progress of the work on the field, give us their feedback and ideas to help us plan for the future.”

The group is also looking for new members and volunteers. Anyone interested in getting involved can find out more information at the AGM.
