Club Networking & Community Asset Transfer Session

Sunday 16 April 2017

We will be hosting a Club Networking Session on Thursday 27th April, 7-8.30pm.  We will primarily be looking at Community Asset Transfers, bringing clubs from various sports together, sharing good practice across the city, launch our CSE club grant programme as well as consulting with you on priorities for what you see as important for the future of sport in the city.

Clubs have long sought after the opportunity to take ownership of their own facilities and possibly to link up with other clubs/organisations to make this a reality.  It is the belief of CSE that we can support you make this happen.
