Gifford Sports and Tennis Courts Feasibility Study


Moneys totalling £1,750 were raised to fund a feasibility study to see whether or not it would be possible to site an all-weather, multi-purpose sports facility, (including tennis), at Yester Primary School.


Three comprehensive quotes were received by the East Lothian Council and we selected the lowest one, (£1,750). The work was carried out and £1,750 was duly paid to the East Lothian Council on November 11th 2016.
