District councillors James Avery, Sally Slade and Elizabeth Sneath have handed Spalding Hockey Club a boost.

They each gave funds from their designated budgets to help the club provide a new pitchside equipment shed.

Club head coach Fred Morris said: “The new shed is already providing much-needed extra space.

“It is weather and vermin-proof and means that we have all we need on hand for training and matches. It is most valuable.”

The shed was made by apprentices at MBE (Fabrications)Ltd of Town Drove, Quadring.

The apprentices worked under the supervision of workshop manager and Spalding Hockey Club member Tim Maltby.

Maltby said: “The apprentices enjoyed the opportunity to work on the shed and develop their skills, especially as it was for such a good local cause.”

The councillors got to see the new shed when they attended a training session involving younger members of the club.
