Councillors fund improvement for Table Tennis Club

Published: 23 Feb 2017



County Councillors Alan Plancey and Leon Reefe, have allocated £996 from their locality budget to Elstree and Borehamwood Table Tennis Club for the purpose of
improving equipment at the club.

The locality budget scheme has funded thousands of community projects since it was launched in 2009, supporting local good causes and making a real difference to people across Hertfordshire.

Cllr Leon Reefe said: “As a youngster I was able to go a youth club situated at Maxwell Park and take part in activities that included Table Tennis. I am very pleased to be able to help the Table Tennis club out in this way.”

Cllr Alan Plancey said: “I am delighted to encourage this local club; these sorts of activities are very important to the local community.”

County councillors work closely with local communities to identify local issues.  For this year, each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council has £5,000 to spend on worthwhile projects in their area and they welcome applications from across the local community.
