SPORT England splashed the cash in Milton Keynes this week as community groups all over town were given money to improve their facilities ahead of the Olympic Games.

MK Springers received a £50,000 donation from the National Lottery-funded body last week, while Stony Stratford Cricket Club also picked up £45,500 ahead of the new season.

And on Wednesday, three Milton Keynes sports playing pitches in Tattenhoe and Medway were given a new lease of life as Sport England were given £27,600 - a donation matched by the playing fields’ management firm Hertsmere Leisure Trust.

Paul Sanfers, Milton Keynes Council’s assistant director for community facilities, said: “This investment represents another fantastic improvement to the network of community sports facilities in Milton Keynes.”
