As part of its involvement with Horsforth Hall Park, the area’s leading estate agency will continue to fund the subscription to Sky Sports which is a popular attraction for the club’s growing membership. The company has also sponsored colourful parasols for the decking area and a large consignment of coffee cups.
Bob Hodson, Vice Chairman at the club says: ‘These are exciting times both on and off the field, but we are only able to develop the club which has been at the heart of the community since 1890 with the generous support of local companies such as Manning Stainton, and our loyal members.’
Sarah Joseph, Manager of the Manning Stainton branch on New Road Side, adds: ‘As a company with a sharp community focus we are delighted to extend our relationship with the club. The innovative use it makes of the wonderful facilities and location has made it a real focal point for many people right throughout the day.’
In addition to cricket, the club welcomes visitors including mums and toddlers keep fit groups who take refreshments in the clubhouse. The facilities are also available to hire for private functions.
Meanwhile, following the success of a bouncy castle, the club is considering turning part of the clubhouse into a play area during the winter for families with pre-school children.
‘The bouncy castle has been tremendously popular with both children and also the parents who can relax with a coffee, or something stronger, while the young ones have some fun. We hope to replicate this success with the indoor play area,’ says Bob.
Manning Stainton’s Horsforth branch is open seven days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West Yorkshire helping people move.
Through its Community Support Programme, the company provides help to a range of worthwhile groups and organisations in the area. Recent beneficiaries have included Featherbank Primary School, Cookridge Primary School and Horsforth St Mary’s Catholic School.
