“It is fantastic that WREN has awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to our revitalised basketball courts taking shape over the next couple of months.”

Claire Higgins, Cross Keys chief executive, said: “Sports facilities are often overlooked but are such a vital part of a community, bringing young and old together and nurturing teams that bridge communities.” WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment.
