CLUB NEWS: Astley secure £4,000 funding

Astley & Tyldesley are delighted to announce that the club has secured £4,000 funding during the past week!

Club Development Officer Mike Hack has secured £1,000 from Forever Manchester’s Bardsley Fund, for the purchase of two full size racing bikes. Another £2,000 was received from Wigan Council’s Brighter Borough Fund, via the Tyldesley Ward Councillors, to purchase four full size racing bikes. A further £1,000 has been provided from the Brighter Borough Fund, via the Astley Mosley Common Ward Councillors, to purchase three sets of racing jerseys and equipment, for the expanded Astley & Tyldesley Go-Ride Racing League.

This is a big boost to the Astley & Tyldesley club and the local community. It will ensure that plans to stage a local racing league at Gin Pit will come to fruition next year. This will enable local residents to race competitively, without having to leave the Wigan Borough. The club’s considerable thanks go to Forever Manchester, Wigan Council and to the local Councillors, notably Steve Hellier and Paula Wakefield.
