Help us to provide an all weather training facility for today, tomorrow and the next generation.

Harpenden Town Council are in favour of support for the proposal to convert existing land at Roundwood School, Harpenden into a full size, state of the art artificial all weather playing surface.

However, there is a risk that planning will NOT be granted and challenges are currently being considered.

What are the benefits for the club?

The all-weather floodlit pitch will answer the massive demand for training and competitive facilities for the school population, Harpenden Colts FC members and the wider community as a whole. Benefits include:

  • A reduction in the distance traveled by our players, their families and our coaches.
  • A world class level playing facility to coach in a far more structured manner thus improving the technical skills of our players.
  • An improvement in the development of players, managers and coaches through a shared coaching environment.
  • Building a closer knit club through the bringing together of age groups and coaches in one location.

YOUR VOICE COUNTS!

You can help to improve the community for today and generations to come by signing this petition. We want to create a legacy of healthy habits for a life time for our children and providing such facilities will do so. We have been working for over a year to make this a reality and now we're at planning stages, we need your help to give it the final push. Please sign today. Many thanks.

    Disappointed that planning permission was refused, hopefully that can be changed on appeal.

    We need this pitch and more facilities like this to help develop youngsters of all abilities. Sport is vital in so many ways. To increase confidence and self esteem, help with team work, social skills, respect and fairplay, develop frienships just to list a few. I can't believe we don't already have a facility like this already in Harpenden.
