Our aim is to raise enough funds to carry out essential work to the arena, site and to ensure the area is kept safe for public use.

The site is owned by Oldham Council but in 2014 any funding for maintenance was removed due to government cuts. Since then Freizland User Group (FUG) has taken over the responsibility of the running and maintenance of the arena and site. 

In the absence of any definable budget for repair and maintenance of the Arena and site, financial responsibility has been passed to FUG. 

The autonomy to manage the facility requires FUG to organise fundraising events to assist with the on-going repair and maintenance of the Facility, hopefully thereby ensuring its long term success.

The arena surface and base is becoming unfit for purpose and will become a safety hazard resulting in closure if the surface is not replaced. Fencing to the arena, park and picnic areas is also in desperate need of replacing. All monies raised will go to immediate repairs so we can keep the site open to public use.
