Could this become a fantastic new home for the Wendene lads?

The Wendene Wanderers do just that; with no home ground they wander around Norfolk looking to play football. They are made up of lads from some of the toughest areas of Norwich and are supported by a great team of adults - they're not bad at the game, either! I got involved with the club when the council tried to charge them for legal fees (I mean, how could we do that to a group which provides such a service?) and arranged for them to drop it. Now we have a much bigger task - a home ground. The team have been fundraising and have done well to generate some money and now they want a permenant fixture. The area of land above is an overgrown parcel of land between the Dereham Road, Wendene and the Power-League at Bowthorpe. They want a fix aside pitch and maybe even a club house. It would be a great reward for the work that this club does. They are the amazing invisible army of volunteers and this home ground, if they got it, would be their just reward.

If you have any objections to this, please let me know because we want to put a powerful community case to the council for getting some funding for this project.

I am working with the council on play improvements in Chapel Break, North Earlham, Clover Hill and The Runnell in Three Score - we can make a real difference to these kids' lives if this go the go ahead.

I will keep you up-to-date with the campaign.
