Community group’s thanks to supporters

Members of the Furness Vale Community Organising Green Space (COGS) group have thanked their supporters after they received £50,000 from Sport England.

The group have spent several years fundraising to revamp a sloping playing field in Furness Vale so that it can be used by the local community.

And after receiving the funding, the COGS committee said: “We’d like to thank all our loyal supporters, High Peak Borough Council and Whaley Bridge councillors and friends in Furness Vale, New Mills, Whaley Bridge and beyond who have actively supported us over the years, in numerous ways, helping us to achieve this success.”
