DVC to be extended

FUNDING has been secured to extend the sports centre at Dearne Valley College.

The college was awarded £225,000 from the Skills Funding Agency and they will also put in £450,000 from their own coffers to fund the building project.

The extension will be to the side of the fitness suite, to allow for more room for the gym equipment.

Sports centre Manager Stephen Hepworth said: “Although there maybe some disruption to normal day-to-day operations during the works, the extension to the sports centre will allow us to extend our offer and service to the local community”.
