We are sure you will agree that that the club deserves the best possible facilities, especially those of you who have watched many events without cover at the Basingstoke track. With the Olympics in 2012 legacy being very much in the news, and the local success of both the Men’s and Women’s senior teams, along with some national representatives, we feel it is an ideal opportunity to pursue our aims.

We have been working closely with the local council and relevant councillors to raise the profile of the club and get their backing for the work. I am glad to say that the council have been very helpful in coordinating development work sort by the cubs at Down Grange. The club has managed to raise over £60,000 towards development work but really needs to be able to access capital funding to allow the stand to proceed.

We have the backing of the Basingstoke Gazette and look forward to hearing from any local businesses that would like to be associated with or support the club
