Pony Club awarded grant fund


The Scunthorpe pony club are pleased to announce the  North Lincolnshire Council Community Grant Fund for supporting community groups have awarded the Scunthorpe pony club £15ooo.oo for the community project, a lot of paper work /hard work had to be submitted along with financial details, Ted Dowse did all the ground work for this project and it has paid off handsomely. We are very grateful to Ted for everything he has done for the club.
With money we have purchased 35 Radios of industrial strength, because of the problems we have been having with radios we hired always letting us down, they didn’t work well in the wooded area of Normanby Park, we used the new Radios at the Autumn Hunter Trial on the 1st Sept, and the worked excellent, we have to have radios for contact with jump judges at events, we also bought timing equipment, watches and master clocks.  We purchased some dressage boards and markers, to replace the heavy old wooden ones, which was always a struggle to move them as it is usually the ladies who  set up/take down dressage arenas. Now we are in the process of buying a commentators box which can be rigged up with speakers and timing gear for events, all these things we hire in for events at a hefty cost, so hopefully next year our events  expenditure will be alot less and there will be more profit to put back into the running of the club.
Thank you so much to the North Lincolnshire Council for awarding this money to the club, the members and the club will benefit greatly from the grant. Thank you.
