Keepmoat kicks off some community cheer at Billingham Football Club
Published by Claire Tinston for IPB Communications in Housing and also in Communities
Fans of Billingham Town Football Club are set to benefit from a spruced up canteen and freshly decorated toilet facilities thanks to a kind-hearted gesture made by Keepmoat.
The leading community regeneration specialist also dived in to upgrade the club’s footpath on the terraces, which will now meet current FA specification by the end of March.
The toilet block and canteen have been re-painted by Keepmoat in partnership with Cummings and Patterson, Hayton and Lamb and Ultegra subcontractors aiding in upgrading the footpaths.
The company decided to give something back to the Stockton Borough community where Keepmoat has worked on behalf of Tristar Homes, part of the vela group of companies, for the past two years.
Keepmoat decided to step in and help when the club allowed the workforce access to the club’s toilet facilities and Vice Chairman Peter Martin pointed out the problems with the footpath.
Gill Sweeney, Resident Liaison Manager at Keepmoat, said: “The club kindly helped the workforce by allowing us to use their facilities and so we’re only too delighted to help them in this way.
“As a company we also seek to invest in the communities in which we work and as Billingham Football Club is at the heart of the local area and brings so much joy to local people it seemed an obvious choice to make."
