A community sports day is set to be a winner next week.

Barnby Dun and Kirk Sandall Sports Association will host the event at the Glass Park on Monday – and British Land, owners of nearby Wheatley Retail Park, has given its backing.

It is intended to raise much-needed funds to maintain and improve facilities at the sports ground and surrounding area for football, cricket, skateboarding and other sports.

Trevor Poulson, association chairman, said: “In its heyday it was very much the centre for community life, and unless we restore it not only will the local community suffer, but the chance to promote the importance of regular exercise and physical activity to young and old could be lost for ever.”

The fun starts at 9.30am and includes cricket, welly wanging and more.
