Northumberland CC informed the club on Wednesday 20th May 2015 that a grant to Sport England Inspired Facilities Fund had been approved. This is great news for users of the park which included the Barnesbury CC as the coaching and events within the park can be developed to give our riders/supporters a better experience. Stephen McIntosh said "this is a massive boost for the coaching activity within the park as we will be able to access toilets and changing facilities and use the building as a base for meetings and events. I anticipate the club will grow as a result once the building is up and running sometime in 2016."
The grant will go some way towards the proposed £500,000 pavilion building which will be used by the club, the football clubs and other voluntary users within the park to progress park activity.
