The refurbishment is coming along nicely, with some fantastic progress being made. Check out our Social Media account to see further information. Work will continue throughout the lockdown period so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
Unfortunately as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the associated requirements of the U.K. government, the Norton Sports Charity site including the clubhouse will be closed from 10p.m. on Wednesday 4th November 2020 until Wednesday 2nd December 2020. This covers all voluntary, sporting, recreational and social activities with the exception of our allotments which will remain open to allotment holders only. During the above period, the work on the refurbishment of the clubhouse will continue.
Could we take this opportunity to both thank everyone for the very responsible way you have all treated this extremely serious matter and also for the fantastic work done by so many people in such challenging circumstances over recent months.
Do please continue to take care of yourselves and our local community.
Now in week 8 of the project, we are well underway. Improvements have been made to our cellar including a new internal wall built to reduce the size and make way for the kitchen. Foundations have been laid for the Kitchen build and we have had a new office built. Work is now well underway on our new outside terrace at the front of the clubhouse. Keep checking our social media for regular updates!

Although the advert shows MFC Foundation, they are just one of a number of employers - one of the positions will be based at Norton Sports Charity.
Norton Sports Charity and the Co-op Foundation are delighted to announce that they will be working in partnership in developing the Charity as a sustainable community hub operated for the benefit of local people. The Co-op Foundation has made a £15,000 grant and as part of the Community Clubhouse Refurbishment project the Charity will also be taking an interest-free loan with an initial repayment holiday of one-year. Chairman of Norton Sports Charity Peter Frost said ''From the moment the Co-op Foundation was brought to my attention by Head Groundsman Dave Geldart, it was clear there was an excellent fit between the values of the two organisations. We have already benefited from the grant by using it to temporarily help manage our cashflow during the early stages of the pandemic and both the grant and the loan are key elements of our fantastic community clubhouse refurbishment project.'' Programmes and Partnerships Manager Ella Smyth from the Co-op Foundation added ''We are very pleased to be working with Norton Sports Charity and are hugely excited by the clubhouse refurbishment project and most particularly by the community space element within that. The Co-op Foundation is very much looking forward to working with the Charity over the coming months to help make a significant difference to the local community in Norton.''
We are very excited to have former England International Ryan Sidebottom using our cricket facilities. He has chosen Norton Sports Charity as an ideal venue to deliver some one to one and group coaching sessions.
