Thanks from Shildon Alive & Shildon AFC

Following our appeal during the week for donations to Shildon Alive we are pleased and grateful for the  response from those attending our game on Saturday against Lincoln United.

Paula Nelson, Project Co-ordinator from Shildon Alive said “A massive thanks to all of the supporters, staff and directors of Shildon AFC for the extremely generous donation of food for our crisis support parcels.  Many folk are really struggling at the moment and often come to us hungry and low. Your acts of kindness means we can help them in a very practical way and make them feel supported by their community.”

David Dent, Chairman of Shildon AFC said “We are proud of our relationship with Shildon Alive and as a community club we are delighted that through our supporters, staff & players, we’ve been able to help those in our community that need support.”

Construction Works at Dean Street

There are currently building works being undertaken at Dean Street for the community garden and the new changing block.

This means that there are a number of excavations around the ground.

There have been a several instances over the past few days, where children have been accessing the ground – this is obviously unsafe for them and causes issues for the club. 

Please ensure that you remind children that Dean Street is private property and is currently unsafe to access unsupervised.

Thank you.
