Ipswich BMX Club are pleased to announce that construction of its new track will commence on Monday 21st June. As a consequence our current Landseer Park track will be fenced off during the building process, which should take 8-9 weeks to complete.
The final Tuesday evening club practice session on the existing track will take place on 15th June.
Our club has also been selected by Persimmon Homes Suffolk to receive the funding through its Building Futures scheme, which supports organisations working with the under-18s.
Club secretary Tracey Reeve said: “We provide a safe place for more than 45 young members to meet and ride. As a club we raised the funds to install a new track, which will be built this summer, but we really need a new clubhouse for our riders and coaches. Persimmon’s generous donation of £1000 will take us a step closer to our dream.”
A total of 128 grants of £1,000 will be awarded across Persimmon’s 32 regional businesses to improve local facilities and the delivery of vital community projects.
Ian Hamilton, managing director of Persimmon Homes Suffolk, said: “We’re delighted to help Ipswich BMX Club to provide local young people with a safe place to enjoy this exciting sport.
“Building Futures is all about supporting youth groups in our area. We’re accepting entries until mid-August so we’d urge more people to apply by visiting www.persimmonhomes.com/charity”
