Last year we got to the final 4 in our category, narrowly missing out on £25,000. This year we have an even better proposition for the judges but we can only show them if we get enough votes from YOU.

Get your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues supporting this community project and use all your social media connections.

Come on Garstang - Pitch In!!!!!



This is an exciting time for the community of Garstang. We launched our ‘Pitch In for Garstang’ appeal in the Autumn 2015 term to raise money for a shared All-Weather Pitch at GCA. Since 2011 we have all seen the huge benefits the new sports hall brought to both the school and the wider community and we are passionate about bringing a world class facility to Garstang. The pitch will provide opportunities for a host of recreational sporting activities such as hockey, football and rugby and particularly Garstang Ladies Hockey Club have plans to make the pitch their home ground and we could even see our town becoming a regional centre of excellence for hockey. The Pitch will be flood lit which will enable us to offer usage of the pitch to our community after school and at weekends.
