Council consider club's cash request
9:40am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
MEMBERS of Malvern Town Council will be taking a second look at a request for cash by local football club Newtown Sports.
Coun Clive Smith put a notice of motion asking the council to grant £1,250 for equipment such as a line marker and mower.
Coun Pat Mewton opposed the idea, as the club had been selected over the town council to take over the playing fields at Sling Lane.
He said: “Newtown Sports were granted the right to the ground as they already had all this equipment, and were going to get a very very large grant from the FA.”
Members agreed to refer the request back to the policy and resources committee.
