During the first lockdown, Melksham Town FC did a Just Giving page to help with ground improvements and utility costs where there was no income coming into the club at all. The support we received from our supporters and sponsors was truly quite remarkable, of which we are so incredibly grateful for.
As we promised back then, we did say we would let people know what the money that was raised has been spent on.
In the videos, you will see that we have been able to put barriers up around the training pitch to protect the pitch.
We have also been able to put up a shed inside the ground for Covid-19 protocols which will also be used for programme sales, raffle and as a club shop selling merchandise.
We have also been able to install a rail on both sides of the main stand steps to help spectators get to their seats and to the bar in a safe way. We always felt that this was an accident waiting to happen.
Finally, the remaining money has been used to help with the utility costs which we are still incurring with no present income.
So, a massive thank you from everyone at MTFC and we hope you continue to stay safe and well in these difficult times. We can't wait to see you all soon back at the InfiLED Arena.
