Sports facilities in Uttlesford have received a nearly £10,000 investment, including grassroots clubs in Hatfield Broad Oak and Felsted.

Thanks to the funding, Hatfield Broad Oak Youth Football Club will now be able to purchase new goalposts, and Felsted Parish Council has secured a grant to refurbish the changing rooms and clubhouse at Felsted Playing Fields.

The money comes from the latest allocations of a £300 million UK-wide capital investment in grassroots facilities.


Kemi Badenoch, MP for Saffron Walden constituency, said: "I know just how important this type of funding is to our local grassroots clubs.

"They aren’t just sports teams; they are the community hubs essential for nurturing future sporting talent and encouraging local people to get active."
