Grant for Blackhorse tractor

January 25 2019

SPORTS pitches at Blackhorse Road playing field in Mangotsfield will now be looking spick and span thanks to a council grant for a tractor.

Rodway Ward councillor Michael Bell donated £500 toward the vehicle from his council MAF fund, part of a funding pot for local good causes.

Pete Brown, trustee of Blackhorse Sports and Community Association and chair of AFC Mangotsfield, said the vehicle will be used to maintain the sports pitches at Blackhorse Road.

Pete said: "I would like to thank Councillor Bell for very kindly donating  £500 from his MAF money towards the cost of the tractor. 

"This will be of great benefit to the local teams who use our facilities and vastly reduce the time taken on maintaining our pitches."

AFC Mangotsfield run football teams for all age groups from six years to adult and are always looking for new players. For further information please phone Pete Brown 0791 6339918 or email
