Local Partnership with Westhoughton High

Tags:Football · Rugby · Tufted

GreenFields are proud to have been selected for a local project by Bolton Council for a new full sized 3G pitch at Westhoughton High School.

Although GreenFields works on a national basis, with the school located just three miles down the road from our offices, it is in a perfect position for us to maximise our partnership with them and the local community as a whole.

GreenFields are working with the school to promote the benefits of the project to the local community as the pitch will be used as a local leisure facility out of school hours which will include utilisation from a number of local youth teams.

We are also providing opportunities for students at the school to find out more about the work that takes place in the pitch installation process with dedicated site visits for small groups of pupils at key construction intervals.

“We are pleased to have appointed a local company to deliver this new 3G pitch and look forward to working with them to deliver this new pitch, which will be well used both by the school and the youth teams in Westhoughton.”

Cllr Ebrahim Adia, Executive Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Resources

The school and the council have collectively selected GreenFields- Slide Max XQ 60 Plus which is a perfect product for high usage and for both rugby and football. Slide Max XQ fibres have been designed in the shape of a diamond with a ribbed surface to provide an advanced, ultra-durable turf with high resilience and increased comfort and safety.

Paul Milton, Commercial Director of GreenFields said: “We are delighted to be working with our local council and Westhoughton High School on this project, it is an exciting partnership for us and for the community as a whole.”

With work already underway on the new 8584m² 3G pitch and completion scheduled for March 2017, the facility will be up and running ready for pupils to make the most of it before they break up for the Easter holidays.
