BRT exists to manage the outdoor recreation facilities behind the Royal Hotel. The present Chairman and Secretary are no longer able to carry out their roles due to family commitments and are appealing for new Trustees to step forward and assist in the managing of the facility. The Trust is non-profit making but it must raise enough funds annually to run the facility and maintain a ‘sinking fund’ to cover larger replacement costs.

The roles are not onerous and can be very rewarding, especially where there a few willing helpers to assist. We have Tennis Club members who take on the bookings and the cleaning of the facilities and we always get a number of ‘regular’ and other volunteers to help at the annual 10K and Fun run. This annual event is the main fundraiser and we desperately need help to run it this year.

If no-one comes forward in May, then very sadly, the Trust will revert to the Charities Commission and BRT will cease to exist – the lease will foreclose – and once it’s gone, then it’s gone.

Since it’s opening, some 15 years ago, other villages have built their own Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) and we do not get the bookings that we used to do. Nonetheless, it is an important village asset and we are lucky indeed to have such a facility right in the centre of the village – please let’s not lose it.

If you can help, please ring 01524 781248 (Richard & Jane) or 01524 782152 (Phil, Trustee). We will be delighted to hear from you
