Reigate & Banstead Borough Council is today celebrating the news that it has received funding of £48,000 for a multi use games area in Redhill.

The funding boost comes from SUEZ Communities Trust (formerly SITA Trust) for the Ifold Road Recreation Ground multi use games area (MUGA).

Funding will provide a MUGA for local users, groups and individuals to undertake a range of activities including ball play (football, basketball and netball), fitness and running. 

Speaking on the announcement of the award, Cllr Dr Lynne Hack, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for the Environment and Infrastructure at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council said: “We are absolutely delighted to be successful in securing such generous funding from SUEZ Communities Trust. Our residents thoroughly enjoy using our open spaces, with all the health benefits this brings. The funding will make Ifold Road Recreation Ground a great place for young and old alike to enjoy this area of our borough.”

Marianne Ivin of SUEZ Communities Trust added “SUEZ Communities Trust provides grants through the Landfill Communities Fund. This important source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided such worthy projects with more than £1.4 billion.”
