As we start a new decade the Club is set to embark on the next stage of its development - the potential to establish an all-weather facility at School Lane. Supported by Lawford Parish Council, we are launching our campaign, named LFC@LFC, to build a 3G pitch at School Lane. The objectives of our project are to create a -
Local & sustainable hub that is a
First class facility, supporting wellbeing &
Easy to remember: LFC@LFC! Like the clubhouse, this will be a huge undertaking both financially and in the hours of voluntary time required to achieve our vision. While the Football Foundation is the major funder of 3G facilities, we will need to raise funds ourselves and secure funding from other organisations. This is an exciting opportunity but one which can only be realised with support from across the Club.
LATEST PROJECT NEWS
At a combined launch event and EGM held on 11 February members agreed that the Club should apply to the Charity Commission to become a Charitable Incorporate Organisation (CIO), subject to permission from Essex FA. At the event the Development Committee outlined our plans to establish an all-weather facility at School Lane and highlights of the Club's new Football Development Plan. A copy of the launch presentation can be found here.
