MIlborne Active

Our Project will support the future development of the Sports Pavilion into an "All Age Fitness & Well-being Centre with Gym facilities.

We did it!

On 5th Apr 2017 we successfully raised £210 with 3 supporters in 21 days

The money that you generously give will be gratefully received and used to support a Grant Funding Application to Viridor entitled 'MILBORNE ACTIVE'

We aim to create a facilitiy that is the beating heart of the local community that inspires people of all ages to participate in sport and fitness activies and provides a superb  legacy for all.

The main thrust of our project is to respond to the genuine need identified in recent FACEBOOK Polls for a range of sports and fitness facilities (especially a gym) locally.  We appreciate that these need to accessible and afordable without the need to travel to similar, more expensive facilities in nearby towns.


A significant number of people responded that they would initially be prepared to pay £10 per month for the unlimited use of any (gym) fitness equipment provided. With that in mind a Donation today of £100 will be rewarded with one years' subscription and £50 to six months membership


1. If our grant application is not successful we will return any donation unless you specifically allow us to use it for another mutually agreed future project / grant application.  

2. The 'clock' starts ticking on your reward once the fitness equipment is installed and launched (opened, not fire into space!!)


From the expression of interest provided, Viridor has stated that our project may be eligible for funding and we have been given the green light to make a grant funding application. The elements we are seeking funding for are:

  • encasement of the veranda with double glazed screen to allow some fitness  equipment to be housed
  • convert one existing changing room into a further fitness gym
  • provision of a range of fitness/gym equipment: spinning bikes, cross trainer, power mills, concept 2 rower, mats, limited resistance training i.e. kettle balls, power bags etc
  • outside multi activity centre
  • solar panels, enhanced heating controls, insulation to ensure effective use of energy, reduce running costs
  • replacement of football pitch dugouts
  • rebound netting
  • conversion of one officials changing room into a wet room suitable for disabled users


The Sports Club as a locally run Charity does not just want to be seen as a football club, that is not what our stated objectives are within our Governing Document.
