High Royds Sports Association
HRSA is a collaboration between the local cricket club, two junior football clubs, the Social Club, Highroyds Residents Association and St Mary’s Menston High School working with Avant (the site developer) to progress the new Sports and Social Club on our site.
Avant Homes are contributing £450,000 towards the build with the remainder of the building being funded from alternative grants for the target build cost of circa £850,000.
Recent progress has been made with confirmation from the Football Foundation that over £300k of funding in principle is available to help meet the cost of the new building. Planning permission has now been granted. To date, funding has been indicated in principle in the region of £700,000.
Here are some pictures of what it will look like.
HRSA is looking at ways to raise the final funds needed to help with the fit out, including sponsors, further grants and schemes like ‘buy-a-brick’.
The building will have a function room, with aspects overlooking both the cricket pitch and football pitches, adjoining onto the bar and together with changing rooms.
