A £100,000 grant has been awarded to West Kilbride Community Sports Club for a new clubhouse and changing facilities.

The money, awarded by WREN’s FCC Scottish Action Fund, completes the funding package for the project following an earlier award of £30,000 from North Ayrshire Ventures Trust and will be used to fully refurbish the existing dilapidated building in Kirktonhall Glen.

John Wilson of West Kilbride Community Sports Club believes the works will make a huge difference to West Kilbride Tennis Club and West Kilbride Amateurs Football Club in particular.

He said: “This second phase of re-development by the Community Sports Club will provide a real boost to tennis and football in West Kilbride.”
