Construction recently began on brand new sports facilities at a Welwyn Garden City school, shortly after the rebranding of the school canteen.
The improved and extended sport facility at Stanborough School cost £270,000, and will include nine floodlit netball courts which will enable the school to host a number of different activities and sports. It will also improve the experience of players in the Welwyn Hatfield Netball League.
The facility has been financed by fundraising from local businesses, including John Lewis, Henkl, HRJ Foreman Law and John S. Kelnyack Pharmacists.
Welwyn Hatfield Council is working closely with the school to ensure the project’s completion. They have also received substantial support from England Netball and Sport England.
A statement from the school said: “We are excited about the numerous opportunities this will give us to develop sport at school as well as in the local and wider community.”
